      Our competitive edge

      Disciplined framework
      Our philosophy is captured in a two-dimensional framework of theme (macro environment) and price (valuation) implemented in a structured and repeatable manner.

      Integrated approach
      We consider the interplay between asset classes, sectors and sub sectors. We also look at each holding’s contribution to the portfolio’s overall sensitivity to different macro drivers, such as currency, interest rate risk, etc.

      ESG integration
      Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are incorporated into our investment decisions at both a macroeconomic and company level. This feeds into responsible ownership in two ways: firstly, in our decision on which assets to own and, secondly, how it influences the assets we already own. Our superior in-house ESG analysis helps identify issues that currently, or at some point in the future, may materially impact the long-term value of a company. We look at aspects such as company governance, labour practices, environmental impact, social upliftment projects, etc.

      Risk management
      Deliberately embedded in our process, risk cognizance is a critical part of our expertise. Our risk management has continually improved over time and is integrated into our thinking. We analyse how assets complements each other, and the risk is assessed before any trade is made. This enables us to create an optimal, risk-adjusted portfolio of shares and enhances our ability to achieve stable returns through various market cycles.

      Cognitive diversity within a dynamic, well-resourced team
      We are a qualified, highly experienced and diverse team. A collaborative leadership style ensures that investment ideas are heard, challenged and debated, with only the best-ranked companies being selected.

      We focus on more than just value
      Our distinctive approach of combining valuations with a deep understanding of the quality of a company, its earnings growth potential and market sentiment assists us in delivering a consistent source of alpha over time.
