Active, fundamental investors

Our integrated, disciplined and high-conviction investment process tends to result in portfolios with high active shares. In contrast to ETF and passive investors, we direct our resource towards fundamental analysis and being on the right side of change. Strong access to company management helps to drive non-consensus views.

Unless specifically stated, environmental, social and governance (ESG) is an integrated, but non-binding, input into our investment process. We actively assess individual company ESG performance and risk factors. In conjunction with our Global Responsible Investment (GRI) team we continually engage with companies to promote positive change and monitor the long-term value of our investments. We do, however, also offer sustainable investment solutions where portfolio decisions are dictated by certain sustainability criteria.

Potential benefits

Our investment advantage.

Style agnostic

We focus on the best stock opportunities irrespective of style implications. This allows for a wide opportunity set and dynamic style drift. It reduces systematic exposure to factor biases and gives us the flexibility to take advantage of value-distorting macro drivers.

Change driven

Equity markets tend to be inefficient at pricing companies that are facing or undergoing significant change in their business or operating environment. We seek to exploit this by investing in stocks where the positive or negative implication of change are mispriced regardless of style characteristics.

Connected thinking

A common investment language embedded across all regions and sectors facilitates the delivery of sharp and effective connected thinking. Enhanced by direct company contact and integrated information flows from GRI, macro, multi-asset, credit teams, our process ensures all relevant investment information is surfaced when making each stock selection decision.

Key risks

The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up and can fluctuate in response to changes in currency and exchange rates. Investors may not get back the original amount invested.
