Airlie undertakes research in conjunction with applying their long-term knowledge and relationships with Australian companies to identify attractive investment opportunities.
Firstly the universe is filtered by assessing the financial strength of companies. Only those with solid financial characteristics including conservative levels of both on and off balance sheet financial obligations progress.
The second step in the investment process is to assess the quality of a company's business. The key question asked is whether or not a company has a durable business with a reasonable chance to prosper in the future. Airlie examines for favourable or improving positions within the industry, predictable earnings power and strong cash generation.
Airlie has deep historic knowledge of the stocks in which it invests. While Airlie is a fundamental, bottom-up investor it is important to keep informed of the macroeconomic events and sector issues that could affect stocks.
The next stage of the investment process is more qualitative, where the quality of management is assessed. Airlie seeks to invest in companies with competent managers whose interests ideally align with those of shareholders. It is important to note that to assess the quality of businesses and management, Airlie visits companies and meets senior management frequently.
