Investment Strategies

Our strategies cover the whole spectrum and bespoke solutions for institutional clients.

Overview

Today, we draw on decades of asset management experience, backed by macroeconomic insights and in-depth company analysis, to help our clients reach their goals.

We’re fundamental investors

Our equity teams are fundamental investors, meaning we undertake rigorous research to fully understand every company in which we invest. We offer investors access to complementary styles, from focused thematic portfolios to diversified factor strategies. 

We're responsible investors

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors3  are fully integrated into our investment activities, from company research to portfolio construction and our ongoing commitment to active ownership. 

  • The ESG data used in the investment process are based on ESG methodologies which rely in part on third party data, and in some cases are internally developed. They are subjective and may change over time. Despite several initiatives, the lack of harmonised definitions can make ESG criteria heterogeneous. As such, the different investment strategies that use ESG criteria and ESG reporting are difficult to compare with each other. Strategies that incorporate ESG criteria and those that incorporate sustainable development criteria may use ESG data that appear similar but which should be distinguished because their calculation method may be different.

With you every step of the way

We empower our clients by offering a range of strategies to suit different needs. This is backed by the latest investment insights from leading industry experts across markets and regions.
