Attain & Sustain High Returns on Investment

Our strategy is based on the Future Quality philosophy. We expect to find alpha by seeking Future Quality companies with sustainably high or improving returns on investment over the long term.

We identify Future Quality by assessing a business across four key pillars - Quality of Franchise, Management, Balance Sheet and Future Valuation. This framework gives us a complete picture of the potential for investment.

We also believe that environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations are integral to Future Quality - good companies make good investments.

Quality of Franchise
Focusing on the future returns of the franchise as well as any ESG factors that may have a significant impact.
Quality of Management
Identifying companies with exceptional strategic vision, strong internal leadership and a high standard of corporate governance and awareness of ESG.
Quality of Balance Sheet
Ensuring companies can finance future organic growth using their own capital.
Quality of Future Valuation
Applying research models to provide detailed forecasts of future ROI and growth of a company’s cash flow.

Collective Focus

All Specialists & Generalists

We are passionate believers that our team’s collective knowledge is more powerful than any individual team member’s.

We harness over 110 years of collective investment experience to strive for outperformance and grow capital for our clients.

Our shared passion for discovering Future Quality businesses drives our disciplined, repeatable investment process, which is why our clients trust us to manage more than USD 1.5 billion globally. We believe a team-based approach to investing best limits key person risk and cognitive bias, and delivers the benefits that come with the deep and diverse experience of the team.

Our most senior team members constantly share their experience by mentoring our younger colleagues. At every stage of the investment process ideas are challenged through rigorous and open debate and within a culture of mutual respect.

Our core values of diligence, respectfulness, mindfulness and transparency form the foundation of our team culture.

Idea Generation
Fundamental Research
Peer Challenge & Stock- Ranking Tool
Portfolio Construction

Our process for identifying long-term winners starts with robust idea generation that is validated by bottom-up fundamental research. Our flat team structure means all portfolio ideas are peer challenged, with each portfolio manager sharing both analyst responsibilities and ownership of investment outcomes. Ideas are then ranked using our stock-ranking tool.

This process of actively challenging investment ideas limits cognitive biases that can lead to inferior returns. This comprehensive process generates a portfolio tilt towards growth and quality, with a total carbon footprint well below the MSCI All Countries World Index.
