Wincrest Capital is an asset management firm founded in 2015 by Chief Investment Officer, Barbara Ann Bernard.  Wincrest employs a fundamental value investment philosophy to global equities.  The investment approach does not change in response to market changes; rather, Wincrest changes markets, if necessary, to remain true to its value investing principles.  Wincrest dedicates time to uncovering undervalued stocks wherever in the world they may be.  As Barbara Ann’s mentor, Sir John Templeton used to explain, then, some other time, when people are overly excited, bidding prices up to higher and higher levels in their anxiety to buy, Wincrest accommodates them and sells those stocks it bought years before.  Wincrest holdings tend to be outstanding niche companies where it finds a strong alignment of interest. Wincrest conducts “go-see” and verify research on companies because Wincrest believes you get what you inspect, not what you expect.
