Individual and institutional investors have more choices and investment vehicle than ever before, delivering wider and faster avenues of access. One has never been able to move so much with such ease. This is why we, at Minneapoois Portfolio Management Group, believe that enabling the masses with investment freedon does not ennoble them with Wall Street wisdom. or with the endless investment choices does not automatically promote confident progress. We believe that investing serious money is a serious venture. Our well concceived methodolgy, comes from many decades of experience. We know the importance of knowing how to value a business as a business, not just a piece of paper or a symbol to trade. We believe that a business and an investment in that business are two different thing, that even the best of businesses can be disappointing investments if one pays too much for them. Our process starts with valuations. We also attempt to identify where a company's business risks may be lessened. Finally, we look for confirmation that our homework is being echoed by other significant investors – that others are awakening to the potential value of these companies – so that we won’t be sitting forever alone waiting for our finds to be discovered and rewarded.
