Billy Wilder

“Delay in vengeance delivers a heavier blow.”

John Ford

“If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story.”

About Voce's Quotes

Each quarter, for inspiration we turn to our favorite writers and warriors; scientists and statesmen; musicians, magicians and politicians; investors and business leaders; thinkers and tinkerers; artistes, aesthetes and auteurs.  The current curation of quotes (from our 2015 Annual Letter) pay homage to Shakespeare, as 2016 marks the quartercentenary of his passing (April 23, 1616).

STRATEGY

Voce invests in companies whose valuation it believes is, based on proprietary fundamental research, impacted by capital misallocation, managerial deficiencies, improper or misaligned incentives, operational underperformance, governance dysfunction and/or strategic issues of scale or scope.  Voce will invest in companies where it believes the catalyst to address such issues is identified and actionable.  Voce may attempt to engage in substantive dialogue with the management, Board of Directors and other shareholders of such companies to effect changes it believes will address the company’s issues and narrow the valuation discrepancy.  The Voce strategy is concentrated and may hold its investments for extended periods.  It seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation by generating superior risk-adjusted returns.

“Think slow, act fast.”

Buster Keaton
