Why

We offer a broad range of actively managed investment strategies and solutions covering global, regional and domestic markets and asset classes. Our investment approach is underpinned by a culture that is dynamic and interactive and by processes that are team-based, performance driven and risk aware.

Equities

form a major part of our total investments. Managed by a highly experienced team of professionals and organised by regional desks, we provide our clients with an unrivalled global equities perspective. We offer global, regional and country specific strategies, investing across the market cap spectrum and with various risk and return objectives.

Fixed income

is one of our primary focuses and a major opportunity for our investors. We have a strong credit heritage and manage fixed income assets across the credit spectrum including emerging markets, high yield, governments, investment grade, money markets and ABS.

GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES

From meeting companies on the ground and around the world, to gaining an understanding of the economic, social and political trends that shape our future, the continuous exchange of insights across asset classes and sectors is ingrained in our process. These insights are debated by analysts and portfolio managers around the globe to ensure every perspective is considered.

RESEARCH INTENSITY

Our team of 160 analysts and research associates is dedicated to original, independent research. Working collaboratively across all major asset classes our teams utilize big data and analytics, such as machine learning and augmented intelligence, to turn information into forward-looking insights that add real value to investment decisions, enabling consistent and replicable outcomes for our clients.

RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT

Well-managed companies that look to the future are better positioned to navigate the risks and challenges inherent in business and achieve sustainable performance and long-term value creation. Responsible Investment (RI) principles are an important factor, and we have developed proprietary tools that provide a robust RI framework and better analysis for portfolio managers to enhance their decision-making.

CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

Across our global business, our Investment Consultancy & Oversight team uses a ‘5P’ approach to ensure the integrity of an investment strategy. The team engages with our portfolio managers – reviewing their performance, discussing their decision-making and analyzing their processes, all to ensure we remain faithful to our clients’ objectives and identify opportunities to continually improve. This process is tangible evidence of our commitment to accountability.

At the centre of every investment decision is a single goal – our clients’ success. Your Success. Our Priority.
