A long-only, focused equity strategy, constructed without reference to an index and looking to achieve superior long-term returns
Benefits from a broad perspective owing to our global, thematic outlook
Flexibility to react to shifts in the attractiveness of different securities
Stock selection driven by bottom-up proprietary research which incorporates environmental, social and governance (ESG) analysis
Our philosophy and process
The strategy is conviction-based, and is constructed with little or no reference to the comparative index. A constantly evolving and forward-looking approach seeks to anticipate change, manage risk, and identify opportunities.
ESG considerations are integrated throughout the research process and via proprietary quality reviews, to ensure that any material issues are captured.
Every time we consider a security or look at an industry or country, it’s in the context of what’s happening across the world. We believe the investment landscape is shaped over the long term by some key trends, and we use a range of global investment themes to capture these.
Machines and networks are becoming more intelligent. This is disrupting the labour market, as machines increasingly replace humans in the workplace. ‘Smart revolution’ considers the implications commercially, socially and politically.
The world has made the transition from connecting places to connecting people to connecting devices. The rapid rise in the ‘internet of things’ is transforming lifestyles and business. This creates winners and losers – our ‘net effects’ theme seeks to identify them.
The influence of China on the world has grown exponentially but its economy looks increasingly risky. ‘China influence’ looks at how the country’s development affects the investment outlook beyond its borders.1
1 Compared to more established economies, the value of investments in emerging markets may be subject to greater volatility owing to differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability or less developed market practices.
Cheap money has caused rapid growth in a sector already supported by deregulation. ‘Financialisation’ investigates the implications of finance dominating economic activity, instead of serving it.
Our Concentrated Global Equity strategy is managed by a team with a wide range of backgrounds and varied experience. Our global sector analysts and investment managers are located on a single floor in London, which helps to ensure that the investment process is flexible and opportunistic. Guided by our global investment themes, the team works together to identify opportunities and risks through research and debate.

Your capital may be at risk. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the original amount invested.
Key investment risks
There is no guarantee that the strategy will achieve its objective. This strategy invests in international markets which means it is exposed to changes in currency rates which could affect the value of the strategy.
The strategy will use derivatives to generate returns as well as to reduce costs and/or the overall risk of the strategy. Using derivatives can involve a higher level of risk. A small movement in the price of an underlying investment may result in a disproportionately large movement in the price of the derivative investment.
The strategy may invest in emerging markets. These markets have additional risks due to less developed market practices.
A fall in the value of a single investment may have a significant impact on the value of the strategy because it typically invests in a limited number of investments.
The strategy may invest in investments that are not traded regularly and are therefore subject to greater fluctuations in price.
The strategy may invest in small companies which may be riskier and less liquid (i.e. harder to sell) than large companies. This means that their share prices may have greater fluctuations.
