ABOUT Stoik

The Stoics taught that destructive emotions resulted from errors in judgment, and that a sage, or person of “moral and intellectual perfection”, would not suffer such emotions. 

Our process is inspired by Stoicism: Focus on building and maintaining a sound investment process and be prepared for whatever the market throws your way. 


Investment Beliefs

  1. Cycles matter, predictions don't

  2. Know what you don’t know and what you will never know

  3. Understand, recognize and manage risk acknowledging that without active risk there is no active return

  4. Risk has many dimensions, not just volatility

  5. Investors and Institutions create biases that can be actively exploited

  6. You can do more with less; Process and focus trump resources

  7. An unconventional perspective is a necessary condition to differentiation

  8. Invest long term and avoid reacting to market information noise

  9. Eliminate conflicts of interest with perfect alignment between manager and investor

  10. Learn from the best and remember that creativity is just putting existing concepts together in a new way


To invest successfully over a lifetime does not require a stratospheric IQ, unusual business insights, or inside information. What’s needed is a sound intellectual framework for making decisions and the ability to keep emotions from corroding that framework
— Warren Buffett – preface to Benjamin Graham’s The Intelligent Investor

Style Investing

Our strategies are based on a systematic process, that takes advantage of market cycles and is immune to emotional biases, which has been shown to provide above average returns and below average risk in the past.

This process is based on 4 main building blocks:

  1. Stoik’s Style Timing Model

  2. Stoik’s Stock Ranking Model

  3. Stoik’s Portfolio Optimizer

  4. Stoik’s Risk Model Exposures & Checks

Our investment philosophy is influenced by some classical investing books and well fundamented academic research.

Our preferred fee scheme is aligned with investor's interests: fees dependent on performance; and below average total fees.

About We Share a Share

WeShareAShare is a not-for-profit project that was born from the desire to join 2 typically disconnected worlds: Finance and Causes.

On the one hand, more and more investors - both individuals and corporations - want to contribute to society and have a positive impact in the world.

On the other hand, social, environmental and cultural entities need to raise funds to support the causes they are dedicated to.

We aim to be the bridge uniting these. Our goal is to keep providing the solid returns of the Stoik family of strategies, while, at the same time, providing an opportunity for the investor to make a positive impact in the world.

And the great thing is that it is not a trade-off - it doesn't cost the investor any return. 

 

 


HOW DOES IT WORK

Stoik solutions have a solid track record of providing consistent long-term results.

In addition to strong investment performance, we offer the investor a new, zero cost way of making a positive impact in the world, which may be an environmental, social or cultural cause.

This is accomplished without any additional cost, as we share part of Stoik’s net fees generated by participating investors. Our fees are not higher because of this. The systematic investment process, use of technology and search for the most cost effective providers allow for a very light structure, which in turn allows for sharing.

Our fees are highly dependent on performance - our fees grow as your investment grows, and part of our net fees are dedicated to good causes.

When you win, we win, and your cause wins. It’s a win-win-win proposition!
