This strategy invests in quality, sustainable companies, primarily from developed markets. These companies have business models that are well-protected from competition, and an element of change helping to drive their value.
We invest for the long term, buying companies from our deeply-researched watch-list, where short-term issues have created clear valuation opportunities. This means our approach provides the long-term growth in returns that quality businesses can deliver, as well as the potential share price boost once those short-term issues have been resolved.
Sustainability considerations, including ESG factors, are fully integrated into the investment process.
The portfolio is concentrated, generally holding fewer than 40 stocks, and is diversified across business models, company end-markets and external change factors.
