Mackenzie Ivy Team

Meeting long-term goals with long-term thinking
We aim to achieve long-term growth through careful and patient investment. Refined over 30 years, our approach to investing is time-tested and trusted, protecting capital and helping investors reach their long-term goals.

A 10-year view

We look for companies that are positioned to perform over the next decade, not just the next quarter. We target businesses that are likely to have steady earnings thanks to their proven products and services, ability to innovate, and strong leadership as we believe this allows us to generate more consistent returns.

Quality that lasts

Through rigorous research and analysis, we identify high-quality companies that can endure, driven by competitive advantages and strong corporate cultures. We curate a watchlist of hundreds of global stocks, waiting for the right opportunity at the right price.

Seeking growth with less volatility

Managing downside risk is a key part of growth. Our disciplined and patient approach aims to smooth the investment journey. By striving to outperform in down markets and participate enough in bull markets, we expect to achieve above-average compound returns over a full market cycle.
