Quality and ESG are the foundations of our investment philosophy. We apply a distinctive quality-based approach and integrate ESG into every strategy. Our “Quantamental” investment process combines the strengths of both fundamental and quantitative styles.
Quality: We believe that investing in stocks that demonstrate persistent characteristics can transcend traditional investing styles such as growth and value. Our quest for high-quality stocks uses a sophisticated, proprietary definition of quality that focuses on the four pillars of profitability, persistence, protection and people. This approach is underpinned by in-depth analysis and academic research, which ensures we focus on investing in safe, growing, profitable and well-managed companies.
ESG: ESG risks are among the most acute long-term challenges businesses face today. The way companies manage such risks provides a crucial non-financial input to our investment process. We integrate ESG continually through our process, from direct incorporation into valuation models, through to research and company engagement that seeks to drive long-term ESG momentum.
Quantamental: Our innovative investment process combines the freedom of judgement of fundamental investing with the bias-free objectivity of a quantitative model. In this way, we seek to provide clients with the best of both investing worlds.
