The Emerging Markets Equity strategy seeks to provide long-term capital growth by investing in a portfolio of emerging markets equity securities. The strategy emphasizes quality and long-term growth at a reasonable price, by combining rigorous company-level research with a top-down overlay driven by long-term secular themes. The strategy adopts a long term, high conviction approach.

  • Distinctive blend of top-down thematic and fundamental company research
  • ESG factors support company quality assessment, which is integrated into our investment process
  • High conviction portfolio of typically 45-55 stocks
  • Dynamic and centralized team, dedicated to proprietary research

Our approach

Diversity

We strongly feel that our diversity has been critical to our success. The team’s founder and head, Philippe Langham, has consciously hired people with different backgrounds, personalities and ways of thinking from his own.

We have a strong culture of discussion and debate amongst the team which encourages different perspectives when evaluating investment opportunities.

Culture

We place a big emphasis on culture within our own team, and pride ourselves on having a highly open and collaborative dynamic. We apply this same criteria when looking at companies.

We spend significant time evaluating company management and engaging with them on areas such as brand, employees and innovation, all of which we believe define corporate culture.

Research focus

We have built a strong research platform which has four key characteristics: long term, global, emphasis on management, and integrates ESG.

We focus on long term, secular themes as part of our top-down research, and have a detailed, systematic approach from a bottom-up perspective.

ESG integration

We are focused on quality companies with sustainable growth prospects and this objective is fully integrated in our investment philosophy and process since our foundation.

We approach ESG criteria in the same manner as financial metrics, as we believe they have a material impact on a company’s long-term performance.
