We aim to add value by identifying good quality stocks that are attractively priced and avoid businesses that we do not understand

We offer a range of strategies designed to meet the complex needs of our institutional clients—spanning global, international and U.S. equities, emerging and frontier markets, and Asia-Pacific equities.

Our team of approximately 127 equity investment professionals brings our disciplined process and global insights to our clients (as of December 31, 2015).

Regardless of the equity strategy, we follow an active management, bottom-up stock selection style that emphasizes a company’s fundamental strength by focusing on evaluating business models and management qualities.

We never invest in a company without meeting with company management first. These meetings continue for the lifetime of our investment.

We focus on investing for the long-term, which helps keep transaction costs low. We use a team-based approach to decision-making, and our investment professionals are based in the market or region in which they invest.
