How we invest

We believe in disciplined active management. By investing in companies with the right combination of quality and growth we believe we can outperform our benchmark. We aim to maximise returns for clients over the long term while managing risk appropriately.

We invest in companies that display both quality and growth characteristics including:

  • A proven management team
  • A superior business model
  • A sound balance sheet
  • The ability to generate sustainable shareholder returns
  • Robust medium and long-term growth prospects
  • Competitive operating leverage

Our risk framework is based on being benchmark cognisant. We use active exposures to manage performance volatility.

Our investment process is built on in-depth research, interrogation, conviction and is based on four stages:

  • Idea generation using a range of inputs including an in-house quantitative screen, external inputs, management meeting notes and company results.  Inputs guide productive, collaborative discussions in the investment team.
  • Each theme is researched in depth by sector and company, overseen by our portfolio managers.
  • High conviction ideas inform buy/sell positions and overall portfolio construction, taking into account the outperformance target and risk management limits.
  • Regular monitoring. Sell decisions are considered when significant events occur such as company fundamentals change, significant share price movements occur or mergers and acquisitions take place.
