How we invest

Our objective is to deliver superior net investment returns more consistently than through a single asset manager or mandate. We do this by drawing on various sources of return, while diversifying across multiple sources of risk.

Over time our investment philosophy has evolved considerably to cover many dimensions. But our main target remains the same: to rely on great work to get to the best possible answers. We recognise the noise in capital markets can only be adequately addressed by nudging the odds slightly in our favour.

There are many opportunities to do this throughout the process. Leaving an opportunity unexplored may undo a lot of excellent work. So we do not focus only on doing one or two things really well and leave the rest to chance. Rather, we focus on doing everything we can really well, sometimes starting with the basics, and increasing the complexity and sophistication as we progress. We do this by sharing a commitment to diversification, accountability, knowledge, curiousity, openness and transparency.

How we explore all the opportunities

  1. We begin with an uncompromising commitment to exploiting the highest quality data, systems, processes and people, since these are the controllable factors in an otherwise uncertain investment environment.
  2. We recognise that asset managers with skill may exist within certain markets or specific market segments and asset classes. They have the ability to deliver returns in excess of their benchmarks or passive alternatives.
  3. We identify these managers through a rigorous and integrated approach of quantitative and qualitative manager research.
  4. Using advanced modelling and statistical techniques, we combine these managers with passive alternatives, where appropriate, to produce superior net investment returns. This delivers greater consistency than single mandates because it diversifies beyond idiosyncratic manager risks.
  5. Strategic (long-term) and tactical (short-term) asset allocation ensures portfolios are appropriately designed and maintained, to maximise the probability of meeting investment objectives.
  6. Our systematic and ongoing portfolio management process includes inputs from manager and market research, asset allocation and portfolio construction. This value-add ensures portfolios are efficiently managed and positioned.
  7. Portfolio risk is managed at every step of the process to ensure portfolios are designed, constructed and maintained to maximise the chances of achieving investment objectives within any specified constraints.

The investment process comprises six steps. Each has a fully integrated risk management framework.

  1. Portfolio specification – defining a portfolio's objectives and constraints.
  2. Asset allocation - strategic (long-term) and tactical (short-term) asset allocation.
  3. Manager research - quantitative and qualitative analyses and extensive due diligences.
  4. Portfolio construction – using the most appropriate manager-blending frameworks for a specific portfolio.
  5. Ongoing portfolio management - an additional source of value-add and risk management is performing an ongoing evaluation of underlying managers and strategies.
  6. Portfolio review – a separate high-level governance and risk management overview to ensure portfolios are meeting their stated objectives.
  7. Holistic risk management - as custodians of investors' wealth, we take our fiduciary duties seriously.
