Mensarius is an active, long-only, high conviction manager which aims to create wealth for clients, with an emphasis on preserving capital. They focus on finding value in the European equity market, seeking dynamic companies that are significantly undervalued to their intrinsic value and which possess a risk profile with which they are comfortable.The firm's research-intensive process is rooted in the investment approach of Graham and Dodd, but is uniquely based on EVA's experience and personalities. They construct benchmark-agnostic portfolios, investing in companies only if there is a very strong conviction about their value based on earning power, which is the primary factor they use to identify an undervalued company. They only invest in businesses undervalued by 40%-50% from what they believe it to be worth. This is their margin of safety and is central to their risk control process.Mensarius makes investment decisions based on a seven-step due diligence process, which considers the elements that define earning power. The steps are similar to the approach of a private equity investor, but are dependent on their own analysis of readily available public information. They seek to exploit business opportunities across market caps and sectors.Their analysis is deeply rooted in their belief that risk relates to company fundamentals and not merely the price at which the stock is being bought or sold in the market. Only after they identify and understand risk do they begin to evaluate the return potential. They put cash to work only when convinced that the long-term investment case is a better alternative than the cash position.Mensarius typically holds investments four to five years because they believe this is generally the time for the stock market to close the valuation gap between the price they paid and what they believe the company is worth.
