Strathmore Centre for Value Investing



Strathmore Centre for Value Investing, SCVI, is a research centre in the School Of Finance and Applied Economics. It aims to foster investment research aimed at uncovering value for investors in undervalued companies and sectors. Generally in these sectors, information asymmetry is prevalent, and opportunities to unlock value exist. SCVI aims to develop solid criteria for obtaining reasonable and consistent returns commensurate with risk using fundamental analysis. We emphasize value rather than trending and momentum short term strategies.


Value investing looks at ‘ugly’ companies, businesses and economic sectors, examining each entity one at a time in order to purchase them at a considerable discount or to invest in a project using minimal capital; discounts are necessary because value investing requires a considerable margin of safety.
