An integer is a whole number, untainted and untouched. As your capital should be.
We are an investment company. Our investment approach is driven by a combination of rigorous fundamental research and advanced quantitative analysis. To identify the very best investment ideas, we rely on extensive research and, where possible, on in depth interviews with company executives. We apply the highest academic standards in our investments. We invest across asset classes to deliver the best possible risk-adjusted investment results for our partners. Although we diversify our exposure, we believe that the best way to reduce risk is to thoroughly assess each investment with top notch research. Our portfolio is generally composed of no more than 10-15 companies.
Our investment strategy can be classified as growth at a reasonable price (GARP). We are looking for companies that have a sustainable competitive advantage, a shareholder-friendly management, a robust return on equity, a safe balance sheet, and, of course, that can be acquired at the right price. We also consider special situations, where we think that the company is undervalued. However, we avoid significant turnarounds.
We invest in solid businesses, priced attractively and that can offer robust risk-adjusted returns. Regardless of the type of investment, we always conduct extensive research and invest alongside our partners. We share risks as much as rewards.
U.S. and European equities
U.S. and E.U. equities represent the majority of our liquid assets. We tend to invest in companies with at least a $1B market cap.
We invest and manage European real estate. We focus on the UK (London), and Italy. We also invest in listed REITs.
We do not trade options for speculative reasons. However, we usually incorporate options into our investments to protect the capital or to receive income. Our options' trades are cash covered.
Our focus is on equities and real estate but, in particular situations, we take positions in currencies.
TECHNOLOGY & SECURITY
Security is a top priority for us. It is for this reason that we employ the latest technology and security standards. We partner with Interactive Brokers LLC to secure access to the one of the best trading platforms and asset management systems in the industry.
Our partners' capital is segregated in special bank or custody accounts, which are designated for the exclusive benefit of our partners. This protection is a core principle of securities brokerage. This ensures asset separation between Integer and its partners.
At Integer Investments, we understand that confidentiality and security of personal information is important. That is why we have developed specific policies and practices to protect the privacy of the personal information provided by our partners. We safeguard the confidentiality of your information in a number of ways. For example, we do not sell or license lists of our customers or the personal, nonpublic information that you provide to us. We also take substantial precautions to safeguard your personal, non-public information.
