Global EquityMerian Global Investors manages the Global Equity Fund. Originally part of Old Mutual Global Investors, Merian is a leading UK-based global asset management firm.
At Merian, we use a dynamic investment process focused on stock selection through analysis of fundamental company data, but taking account of the macro environment and investor sentiment. We believe that stock prices often diverge from their fundamental value due to investors’ behavioural biases. We seek to exploit these biases in a dynamic and efficient way, resulting in outperformance driven principally by bottom-up stock selection. We also apply stringent risk-management techniques, carefully control turnover and trading costs and maintain strict limits on sector and stock positions.
Old Mutual Global Equity Fund is a rand-denominated fund holding a diversified portfolio of equities in developed markets globally. The fund seeks out compelling investment opportunities wherever these exist globally, irrespective of sector, country or region.
