Why the Saguaro?


The Saguaro (suh-waa-row) is a keystone species for the Sonoran Desert of southern Arizona and northern Mexico, meaning that most other native flora and fauna depend upon it for their life cycle. Perfectly designed to dominate its ecological niche, the Saguaro can endure months of scorching heat with no rain or thrive in the monsoon season when rivers flood the sands. With spines to protect it from threats the Saguaro consistently does one thing every year, it grows. We aspire that both our firm, and the companies we invest in, will be as resilient.

Artificial Intelligence: enhancing productivity

Human + Machine: Reimagining Work in the Age of AI explores the power of artificial intelligence (AI) in reshaping the future of work. The authors, Paul R. Daugherty and H. James Wilson, argue that rather than replacing humans, AI has the potential to enhance human capabilities and revolutionize industries. They provide insightful examples and case studies to illustrate how organizations can effectively combine human and machine intelligence to create new value and competitive advantage.

At Saguaro, we have witnessed firsthand a remarkable increase in productivity that is a result of combining AI alongside human research, echoing the insights shared in the book.  By incorporating AI algorithms and tools into our investment process, we have been able to achieve significant advancements in our research productivity.

The integration of AI has allowed us to analyze vast amounts of financial data more efficiently and generate actionable insights. As with other industries explored in this book, the investment landscape continues to evolve with growing complexity and data availability. We firmly believe that the role of AI in investment management will only become more pronounced in the coming decades.
