About us

Our investment philosophy

We focus on the objective of generating the best long-term returns for our investors.

  • Value investing

    At BESTINVER we dedicate all our efforts to analysing the market in search of opportunities, identifying and investing in those companies where the real value is far in excess of the market price. This philosophy is known as value investing.

    Our investment philosophy is based on three pillars: our own fundamental analysis, appropriate risk management and long-term investment horizon shared by investors and fund managers.
