We offer a range of equity funds focused on developed markets:
This is a diversified pan-Asian investment strategy employing a top-down thematic investment approach designed to capture the distinct valuation drivers of each regional market. The strategy is managed by locally-based managers and analysts who are able to identify and quickly capture opportunities.
We offer a range of European long-only equity funds following fundamental, bottom-up stock selection, covering both pan-European and Europe ex UK, as well as specialisms in small, medium and large caps.
This strategy invests in global equities using a long-term, active investment approach to exploit valuation anomalies. As bottom-up stock pickers, the team invests in companies that pass a series of tests within their ‘Theme, Quality and Value’ framework. The result is a high-conviction, benchmark-agnostic portfolio, with a very low turnover over a typical investment horizon of three to five years.
Our approach in Japan is centred on the belief that only a limited number of market-leading firms are able to deliver superior portfolio returns over the long term when purchased at discount to fair value. The resulting portfolio is one that is high-conviction and highly concentrated. Turnover is typically very low as the team have a long-term investment horizon, meaning that the holding period of each stock is typically several years.
We offer a range of equity funds focused on Swiss equities. From small/mid-caps to a focus on sustainability factors, the funds are actively managed with an emphasis on bottom-up stock selection, taking into account the special features of the Swiss market.
Our core equity income strategy aims to deliver steady income and capital growth. The team applies a cash flow-based investment approach to invest in stable, established companies with strong dividend prospects, primarily in the UK, but with the flexibility to access attractive opportunities overseas. The result is an active, concentrated and liquid portfolio diversified across sectors and market caps.
We offer a range of equity funds focused on emerging markets:
We offer a number of Asian equity funds. Overall this area of equity markets is relatively immature and under-researched with inefficient capital markets, offering plenty of opportunities for skilled stockpickers.
Within Asia ex Japan, we offer a strategy focused on quoted securities in the Eastern Pacific and Asian region, excluding Japan but including Australia and New Zealand.
This strategy seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing in companies with assets in, or revenues derived from, China and Hong Kong. Run by a highly experienced team of specialists based in Hong Kong, strong local knowledge helps the team identify investment opportunities that capture China’s rapid growth potential and take advantage of developing market inefficiencies.
Global Emerging Markets
This strategy is an active, value-driven approach blending top-down macro themes with bottom-up company research. It is run by a seasoned team with experience of multiple market cycles and expertise in every emerging market region, who carry out in-depth macro research integrating equity, commodity and credit perspectives.
We offer a range of equity funds with different thematic focuses:
This strategy employs a top-down thematic approach to identify the game-changing trends which are likely to result in the biggest and most disruptive technology opportunities. Portfolio construction recognises that there is a strong polarisation between winners and losers, which is often reflected in new companies (non-index) versus incumbent (index); this necessitates a benchmark-agnostic approach.
This strategy taps opportunities arising from industry innovation as well as taking advantage of themes such as the growing wealth in emerging markets and the demographic changes caused by an ageing population. Taking a global view of the healthcare industry, the strategy’s experienced managers combine top-down economic and industry trends with bottom-up stock analysis to build a concentrated but diversified portfolio.
As global wealth creation is expected to rise year-on-year, driven by consumers in North America, Europe and Asia, demand for luxury brands is expected to remain firm. This strategy is a highly-focused, concentrated and diversified portfolio of favoured luxury brands managed by a highly-experienced team of managers.
