How we invest

Our investment philosophy ensures we fulfil our investment promise to clients by establishing clear and simple objectives using rules-based strategies backed by sound academic research and practical experience. Investors have access to our range of capabilities, from simple index strategies to factor, multifactor and enhanced strategies. They can use these solutions to achieve their objectives for core allocation, risk management or tactical allocation in an efficient, transparent and low-cost way. 

Financial markets can be complex. We manage the complexity and provide investors with simple solutions that are easy to use. We keep costs low and use the power of compound interest to grow our clients' money. Human emotions can get in the way of disciplined investing. We follow strategies that are rules-based and transparent with deep roots in sound academic research. Different circumstances require different investment strategies. We provide investors with the building blocks and tools to enable flexibility in maximising the chances of achieving their investment goals.

Our investment process is simple: we aim to replicate each fund's benchmark index as closely and efficiently as possible.

For most funds, we follow full replication of the index, meaning that we buy each constituent of the index in the same weight as it is held in that index. For some funds with less liquid constituents we may use an optimisation process. This replicates the performance of the index using a representative sample of liquid securities, being careful to match the risk and return of the index as closely as possible.

The team rebalances the portfolios at pre-set intervals to ensure close alignment with the indices. Portfolios are also revised on an ongoing basis for corporate actions, ad hoc index changes and client cash flows. Trades are executed as efficiently as possible and with minimal trading costs. Risk management is a key component and is monitored daily.
