Investment process

Global equity process

Bottom up stock selection is core to this investment process. The manager aims to identify undervalued companies with superior visible growth and sustainable returns. Invest with long-term, fundamentally driven and research-based investment philosophy.

Emerging markets process

Mix of top-down analysis and bottom-up stock selection, looking to derive 50% of added value from country allocation and 50% from stock selection. The core investment process does not target any particular style bias and aims to outperform in most market environments. Country allocation is driven by a quantitative model, to which the team applies judgmental overlay in a controlled manner, while fundamental research forms the basis of the stock selection process.
