Our Investment Philosophy

At Quaero, we believe in:

  • Long-term Investing
    • “Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas.” – Paul Samuelson 
  • Disciplined Risk Management
    • The essence of making money is not losing money or, in the words of Benjamin Graham, “The essence of portfolio management is the management of risks, not returns.”
