Building on active, bottom-up research, we create the competitive advantage that is able to deliver superior returns for our clients. Because markets are only semi-efficient, we act on intelligent insight:
- Our portfolio managers have access to in-house research, unavailable to others, on 90% of our fund holdings.
- Our analysts carry out their research on the ground – visiting the shop floor, speaking to customers, competitors, suppliers,
and independent experts to form conviction.
- Over the course of a year, our portfolio managers and analysts attend more than 17,000 company meetings – or one every 10
minutes on average.
- We commission over 250 bespoke surveys and reports a year to understand the market potential of companies’ product and
This is how we find growth opportunities or income streams that have not been priced in by the market – allowing us to consistently add value for our clients.
Our portfolio managers are compensated on their long-term performance so that client and manager interests are aligned. The same is true for our management, whose shareholdings are for the duration of their careers with the company.
We are stewards of our clients’ money and have an important role to play in improving the governance of the companies in which we invest our clients’ money – helping companies become better companies.
We train many of our fund managers through our rigorous Portfolio Manager Academy programme. New portfolio managers initially manage pilot funds to test their ideas with our own money first. To our clients we offer tried and tested funds as a matter of principle.
It’s an approach that works: more than 170 awards across Europe and Asia in 2017 to date recognise the consistent strong achievements of our investment and client service teams.
Since we were established in 1969, we have been committed to creating solutions that help our clients build a better future.
We are committed to empowering institutional investors to make suitable long term choices for their scheme through education.
We believe in making sure we know that the companies we invest in are managed legally and responsibly. We see this as a key element of our commitment to act in the best interests of our clients at all times.
