Our investment philosophy

All our investment strategies are driven by one single guiding philosophy based on three key foundations:

 


ACTIVE FUNDAMENTAL INVESTMENT


Our portfolio managers rely on high-quality proprietary top-down and bottom-up research to drive their investment decisions, provided by a team made up of:

  • 4 economists
  • 24 credit analysts
  • 20 equity portfolio managers/analysts
  • 7 quantitative analysts
  • 1 strategist

 

 


DISCIPLINED PORTFOLIO CONSTRUCTION


Fund managers benefit from proprietary tools across each stage in the investment process, from portfolio construction to active management and use of the risk/return ratio, with specific proprietary tools and risk budgets at every step.

 

 


TEAM-BASED APPROACH

Portfolio managers, strategists and analysts work together to identify the best investment opportunities.

  • 1 macroeconomic committee – Top-down – Monthly
  • 1 strategic input committee – Top-down – Monthly
  • 7 sector teams – Bottom-up – Regular meetings
