Our Philosophy

Since our foundation in 2003 the Veritas philosophy has been built upon two founding principles of Real Returns and Partnership.

Real Returns

We manage money on behalf of clients following our Veritas Real Return Approach, implemented by an investment team with substantial experience and a proven long term track record. The approach demands that all potential investments are analysed from an absolute basis rather than relative to any benchmark or index. The focus is on protecting and growing client’s capital in real terms with exceeding an equity benchmark a fall out of that process.


Our business is run with a partnership structure and culture. We align our interests as owners in partnership with our clients. Our partners and employees are invested alongside our clients on the same terms. We are an investment-led organisation that controls the growth of our business. It’s important to us that clients fully understand our approach and share a similar objective or mind-set.


Our Key Principles

The key principles of the firm can be summarised as:

  • 1

    Focused on protecting and growing the real value of clients’ capital.

  • 2

    Partnership structure and culture.

  • 3

    Alignment of interests with clients through controlled growth, co-investment and investment objectives.
