Members analyze opportunities across geographies, across industries, and across the entire capital structure of each potential investment to get the big picture. Every effort is made to balance risk and reward before a decision is taken.
Being on the ground all over the world helps analysts understand the customs and traditions that affect regional markets. This special insight helps put investors at the front of the line for under-the-radar opportunities. MFS believes its global collaborative environment is one of its key competitive advantages.

Every member of the investment team is responsible for ongoing risk assessment. The goal is to provide investors with the greatest possible return within the risk guidelines of each portfolio.
