Merv Lincoln’s ground-breaking PhD research “The Usefulness of Accounting Ratios to Describe Levels of Insolvency Risk” uncovered how to use the financial statements of a business to accurately predict both its financial health and the long-term performance of its share price. It is the core of our methodology and a key part of our ongoing success.
A former international athlete for the mile who represented Australia at both the Olympics and Commonwealth Games, Merv went on to become a senior lecturer in Economics and Finance at the University of Melbourne for 21 years. His intellectual rigour and appetite for elite performance remains the benchmark used to inspire our team every day.
