A truly active approach to equities based on fundamental research and a disciplined investment process.
The scope of our research means we can offer a wide range of investment outcomes. These include those aiming to significantly outperform a market, portfolios that invest to generate a premium level of income, responsible investing and smaller-companies strategies.
We believe that in-depth analysis of ESG risks and opportunities, combined with active engagement with company management, enhances risk-adjusted returns.
Rigorous and collaborative research, shared across our global research platform, allows us to generate our best investment ideas.
We believe that ESG factors are financially material and can impact a company’s performance – either positively or negatively. Understanding ESG risks and opportunities, alongside other financial metrics, is therefore an intrinsic part of our research process.
We actively engage with the companies in which we invest. We combine information from these meetings with the insights of our investment managers, ESG equity analysts and central ESG investment team. This comprehensive approach means we can build a richer, more holistic view of each company. It also means we can consistently evaluate one company against another.
This approach is all part of our responsible stewardship of our clients’ assets – helping us mitigate risks, unlock opportunities and enhance long-term returns.
Exceptionally diversified solutions to allow investors to diversify risk and optimise investment opportunity.
