Castle Point is a boutique Fund manager which was formed in 2013 by Richard Stubbs, Stephen Bennie, Jamie Young and Gordon Sims.
We invest with a long-term perspective and focus on capital preservation.
Our investment philosophy and process seeks to exploit market inefficiencies that exist, in our opinion, because financial market investors tend to:
- focus on recent past performance
- underestimate the effect of capital flows and the resilience of poor returning companies (we call this the ‘Value opportunity’)
- underestimate the length of time growth companies can earn excess returns (we call this the ‘Quality opportunity’).
We use disciplined investment processes to find, research and include investment opportunities in our portfolios.
Our investment commentaries frequently delve into examples that illustrate how our investment philosophy works in practice.

All investments are kept with the Public Trust, our custodian and supervisor.
