About Sanford DeLand
Sanford DeLand Asset Management (SDL) was established in March 2010 by Keith Ashworth-Lord, supported by a group of like-minded business professionals, with a view to launching the CFP SDL UK Buffettology Fund.
SDL is an Appointed Representative of Castlefield Investment Partners LLP, which is the investment adviser to both the SDL funds.
Unlike many City asset management firms, over 40% of the company's share capital is owned by the directors of the business. We have an association with Mary Buffett and David Clark, authors of the seminal ‘Buffettology’ series of investment books about Warren Buffett’s investment style. Other shares are owned by a small group of public company directors and business associates.
Sanford DeLand manages funds according to the philosophy of Business Perspective Investing, widely acknowledged as one of the most successful long term investment strategies associated in particular with Warren Buffett and other disciples of Benjamin Graham.
Building long term value for our shareholders and clients alike depends on one thing: performance. If you believe, as Business Perspective Investors do, that a share is an ownership claim on a business, then business success and investment success go hand in hand.
