As well as global equities focused on developed markets, global emerging markets and global listed real estate, we manage a number of active equity strategies that are each focused on a specific region.
Our strategies focus on where the majority of outperformance is to be sourced in the equity markets: bottom-up stock selection. However, each specialist investment team has the autonomy to follow individual investment processes they have refined over many years and have adapted to the nuances of the specific markets they cover.
