About Findlay Park
Findlay Park is an independent investment partnership based in London.
Generate compelling compound returns for our investors, measured over decades.
We believe that we can generate higher compound returns for our investors by taking less risk. This is counter to what most people believe: that to generate higher returns you need to take more risk.
Our starting point is trying to avoid losses by controlling the downside risk in each individual investment – the result should be a portfolio capable of generating higher compound returns than the benchmark with a lower level of risk.

We aim to invest in a diversified portfolio of high quality, sustainable companies*.
Findlay Park’s culture is one of teamwork and the investment process for the Fund is team-based. Our experienced Investment team uses a co-coverage model whereby existing and prospective holdings are researched by at least two members of the team.
Each new idea and existing holding is pitched to, and debated by, the entire Investment team. In these meetings we encourage each other to share views and we always invite constructive and respectful challenge and feedback.
This approach draws on the collective expertise of the group and helps us to build conviction in our research and position sizing.
* In this context, we primarily mean the financial and economic sustainability of companies. We also consider companies’ environmental and social sustainability. Please see here for further information.
One of our guiding principles has been ‘Keep it Simple’. We believe that this approach maximises our focus and improves our performance. We aim to create an environment where the entire team can focus their efforts on research and investment.
We believe that a highly collaborative team is an essential factor for achieving long-term performance. Our focus on investing in the US means we’re able to spend time getting to know our companies and their management teams extremely well.
Our consistent record is enabled by a long-proven investment process and enduring team.
