Investment Philosophy

Investment Philosophy

We believe in minimizing the risk of capital loss and maximizing return. In an attempt to accomplish these objectives, Tsai Capital invests in a limited number of companies that Tsai Capital believes are high-quality, growth companies that offer significant upside potential and a margin of safety at the time of purchase.

Because truly outstanding businesses are not often available at attractive prices, we seek to hold investments for the long-term, provided their fundamental and qualitative characteristics remain favorable.
