Wealhouse is a Toronto based global investment firm. We comb the globe for businesses with great long-term growth potential in earnings and free cash flow. We only invest in businesses where we have the opportunity to meet management to discuss some of our checklist questions that we feel are most relevant to our mutual success as potential long-term shareholders. We look for management teams that have the ability to build businesses with loyal customers, employees and shareholders.
Our investment philosophy is based on a fundamental bottom-up approach. We look for companies with proven business models, strong balance sheets, above market profitability and best in class management teams. We look for companies with compelling growth stories, but don’t want to pay for it. We believe our edge stems from our meetings with global management teams, allowing us to obtain key industry and company insights.
