Silver Heights Capital Management is an exclusive, discretionary investment counsellor focused on creating alpha through high-conviction, absolute return investment management. Founded in 2006 and based in Toronto, we manage assets for affluent families, individuals and select institutions across Canada. A founding principle of our firm is an “investment-first” ethos. We apply a time-tested, rational, business-minded approach to investing.
It is our belief that the optimal approach to safely growing capital is to have the greatest exposure to our best ideas. We therefore seek to invest in high-quality businesses, only acquiring shares when prices are below the intrinsic value of the business. When we find these opportunities, we will take concentrated positions, with the objective of achieving superior, risk-adjusted, absolute returns while preserving our clients’ capital and growing it over time. Silver Heights never has, and does not, use leverage.
We believe that alignment between our clients’ interests and our interests achieves the best results. Silver Heights’ co-founders/principals and senior management have over 95% of their liquid net worth in the same securities held by Silver Heights’ clients.
