Orbis has been creating value for clients for over 30 years.
We work to find opportunities others miss, but this means investing in unpopular areas of the market, which takes courage and patience. Our long-term approach is at the core of everything we do, from the way we invest, our company structure, and even the way we charge fees.
We evaluate businesses from the bottom up to identify businesses with long-term prospects priced at less than they are worth. Since it can take time for these companies to realise their true value, our business is structured to avoid pressure for short-term performance with no external shareholders. Our independence allows us to prioritise clients, make bold but considered decisions and stand by them as long as we need to.
Our unique fee structure further ensures we remain driven to deliver long-term returns as we only charge a fee when we outperform.
