Relying solely on a passive approach to investing may not meet real world savings goals or match liability objectives. Active management aims to deliver as the alpha component of overall return has become even more important in today’s low growth environment.
Ensuring that portfolio construction is deliberate, diversified and appropriately-scaled is key in the pursuit of consistent alpha. While outperformance may be achieved over short periods through over-reliance on a few stocks, or by focusing on a single sector, this approach does not always deliver higher returns. Long-term consistency can potentially be achieved through actively managing risk in portfolios.
Our success in active equity fund management is built on the ability to empower and support our fund managers to be among the best in the industry. We welcome challenge, encourage diversity of thought and recognise that real investment insight is hard to come by.
We are disciplined and follow process, but in a pragmatic, not dogmatic, way. We believe in the persistence of our investment advantage, but know that the world is constantly changing.
We go the extra mile to gain an investment edge. Our global research platform and proprietary technology are crucial to our success. Our Data Insights Unit helps inform investment decisions through unique analysis of alternative data and the application of data science tools. Together with our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) team and its proprietary research tool, they add a dimension unmatched by other fund managers.
We have a wide range of actively-managed equity strategies designed to deliver consistent levels of alpha. From those that can invest anywhere in the world, to strategies focused on specific countries or investment themes, there are options to help meet a wide range of investment requirements.
