Analyzing environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors has always been an important part of our investment philosophy. Listen to the team talk about our annual ESG report and how it helps investors understand how and why we integrate ESG into our investment processes.

Total as of June 30, 2021

Our London-based team consists of nine investment professionals, a portfolio engineer, a product specialist and a team assistant. We combine a top-down thematic overlay with rigorous company-level research to support three distinct Emerging Markets Equity disciplines: Quality, Value and Small-cap.

Diversity

We strongly feel that our diversity is critical to our success. The team’s founder and head, Philippe Langham, has consciously hired people with backgrounds, personalities and ways of thinking different from his own. We have a strong culture of discussion and debate which helps bring different perspectives to the table 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 environment. We apply this same criteria when looking at companies. We spend a lot of time evaluating company management, and engage on areas such as brand, employees and innovation, all of which we believe define the corporate culture of a firm.

Research focus

A key differentiator for the team is the breadth and depth of independent research that we do. We have built a strong research platform that has four key characteristics. It is long term, global, focused 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.

Sustainable investment

Sustainable investment has been a critical part of our investment philosophy and process since our foundation. We approach ESG criteria in the same manner as financial metrics, as we believe it has a material impact on a company’s long-term performance. ESG is fully integrated into our investment process and all team members perform ESG-related analysis.
