Investment Philosophy

Firm Philosophy

Crawford Investment Counsel invests for the long term in undervalued, high-quality income-producing securities. This provides a lower volatility return pattern and is an attractive means of preserving and accumulating wealth. Investments are fundamentally researched with extensive due diligence to identify their intrinsic value. Consistently applying this investment philosophy leads to a predictable set of investment characteristics and attractive returns over a full market cycle, while protecting against market downturns. These characteristics are found across all of Crawford’s investment strategies.
