Our policy on risk in assessing all investments is summarised as follows:

  1. There is no return without risk: Rewards go to those who take risks.
  2. Be transparent: Risk will be explicitly stated.
  3. Seek experience: Risk is measured and managed by people, not mathematical models, and Nimmo-Bell will always employ experienced people to analyse and manage projects.
  4. Know what you don’t know: Nimmo-Bell will question all assumptions made so that as far as practicable it removes unknown factors from decisions, and will always explain assumptions made that we are not clear about.
  5. Communicate: Risks will be discussed openly with investors at all times in the project’s life.
  6. Diversity: Investing in a range of projects with different risks will always produce more consistent rewards.
  7. Show discipline: A consistent and rigorous approach will beat a constantly changing strategy, so Nimmo-Bell will stick to its original game plan unless this is held to be untenable.
  8. Use common sense: It is better to be approximately right, than to be precisely wrong, so Nimmo-Bell will always blend common sense with documented plans.
  9. Return is only half the equation: Decisions will be made only by considering the risk and return of the possibilities.
