Michael Elkins

Mike was drawn to Burgundy by the profound simplicity of its investment philosophy. Stocks should be viewed as a fractional ownership interest in a business and purchased at a discount to an intrinsic value that is derived from intensive study of the business. Mike finds the efficacy of this approach to be self-evident and is continually confounded that it is rarely truly practiced by investors. Mike enjoys the intellectual challenge of practicing Burgundy’s form of value investing and the rewarding nature of it. He currently focuses on European equities.
