Equities

Equities are a broad and deep asset class which forms the basis for many institutional portfolios, providing access to both capital growth and yield opportunities.

We believe successful investment in equities requires active management and specialist teams with the ability to know stocks better, helping to reduce risk and deliver greater insights into wider market trends and investment opportunities.

Equities:

  • Are an important source of liquidity
  • Provide the potential for capital growth and income
  • Offer significant opportunities for active managers to add value

Philosophy and process

Investment philosophy

Investment philosophy

We believe equity markets are, by nature, inefficient. The combination of uncertainty and behavioural finance results in stocks frequently diverging from their fundamental value. This is where the real opportunity lies.
