Equities approach
Equities insights

We offer global, regional and country specific strategies, investing across the market cap spectrum and with various risk and return objectives.

Meeting companies and conducting fundamental research lie at the heart of our equity approach. We aim to invest in companies that can create sustainable long-term value and believe that by engaging with companies we can gain a thorough understanding of their business models, company finances, competitive pressures and drivers of corporate profits.

Face-to-face meetings also provide an opportunity to question management teams on their future plans and strategies. Combining this bottom-up analysis with thematic insights into markets helps us to build portfolios that can deliver consistent, long-term outperformance.

Tracking the pandemic - the challenges of interpreting fast-changing data

"The Covid-19 pandemic is generating huge quantities of case count data as the disease advances around the world. We have seen countries and regions that were hit earliest move through the initial peak and into a period of declining incidence, while those affected more recently are still recording rapid rises in infections and fatalities.
