The Oxbow Principles

The Oxbow Principles construct a base capital portfolio as the first stage in investing.   Base capital is nonvolatile funds producing income to cover expenses. This is peace of mind money producing low returns, but is tremendously safe and consistent.  Investment capital is stage two and includes money that can be volatile and tied up for long periods of time. It is used to invest in companies that have more risk but a higher return and is intended to produce a growth pattern that will last the rest of your life.
