1. Long Horizons
We’ve built Decade to enable us to be long term business owners. We believe enduring businesses are crafted through the compounding of incremental gains day after day. Our goal is to be there to see the benefits of these gains for decades to come.
2. Culture Leads The Way
At the end of the day, we are backing the leader, management team, the Board and company culture to deliver. Businesses without clear strengths in these areas don’t seek the long term rewards we’re chasing.
3. Ironclad Business Models
We look for businesses whose fundamentals will stand the test of time and we invest in the few whose ambitions match our own. With a little bit of patience, it’s these businesses that can deliver generational outcomes.
