Sprott just welcomed a new arrival.

Whitney George has joined Sprott, bringing over two value-oriented funds currently with around $285 million in assets.1

He says that investors have lost sight of the businesses they own because they’re looking at indexes, not individual stocks.

Mr. George says this opens the door for value investors in the school of Graham and Dodd or Warren Buffet (click here for the audio).

HenryHow would you describe your value investing philosophy?

Whitney: In the mid-80s, I started paying very close attention to the Warren Buffett style of investing-- value investing.

I wouldn’t characterize it as ‘deep value’ or buying ‘cheap’ companies so much as buying high-quality businesses at really good absolute valuations with a long-term investment horizon.

For me, a quality company has a very strong balance sheet that can weather any kind of economic conditions and take advantages of disruptions. The company has a business that generates high returns on capital and therefore can generate lots of free cash flow. It can then use that free cash flow to grow the business or return it to shareholders -- whichever is most appropriate at the time.
