Allan Gray seeks to buy shares offering the best relative value while maintaining a diversified portfolio. They thoroughly research companies to assess their intrinsic value from a long-term perspective. This long-term perspective enables them to buy shares from sellers who over-react to short-term difficulties or undervalue long-term potential. They invest in a selection of shares across all sectors of the stock market, and across the range of large, mid and smaller cap shares.
