With the goal of generating strong risk-adjusted returns, the Strategy invests in companies globally where we believe the upside potential is significantly greater than the downside risk. 

  • We believe that:
    • Sources of market inefficiencies vary over time. The best way to capitalize on these inefficiencies and pursue attractive risk-adjusted returns is through an integrated approach that combines fundamental, bottom-up research and a top-down view of the global macrooeconomic landscape in a well-diversified portfolio.
    • Quality companies outperform. Quality companies are companies that have sustainable competitive advantages and can produce strong, unlevered returns on equity compared to their peers. Investing in attractively valued, high-quality companies can further contribute to strong risk-adjusted returns over time.
