Jensen Quality Growth Process

Sell Discipline

Our sell discipline monitors the key tenets of our buy discipline: sustainable competitive advantages, growth, value creation and price.

We will sell a company if:

  • Company fundamentals deteriorate below our minimum business standard of a 15% return on equity on an annual basis, indicating a possible loss of competitive advantage
  • The market price of a business exceeds our estimate of full value
  • It is displaced by a better investment that allows an upgrade to the portfolio’s quality, growth outlook and/or valuation metrics
