The Global Equity Process

Investment Process

The fund managers believe the key to generating outperformance is through high conviction, long-term, research-led company selection.

There are five key elements to the investment process:

  • Identifying long-term winners. The managers seek to invest in excellent companies that are positively exposed to powerful trends or have distinct and differentiated characteristics that will result in consistently above market returns over the long term.
  • The portfolios are actively managed and only consist of stocks in which there is high conviction that they will be long-term winners. This typically leads to funds having a high tracking error and active share against their respective benchmarks. 
  • Constructing concentrated portfolios. This enables long-term winners to drive investment returns rather than the market and therefore each idea will have a material impact on fund performance.
  • The portfolios are constructed so that they can generate returns which are not overly dependent on the success and failure of any one individual investment style, such as growth and value, or macro factors. 
  • The Funds aim to be liquid in all market conditions.

Key Risks 


Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Do remember that the value of an investment and the income generated from them can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed, therefore, you may not get back the amount originally invested and potentially risk total loss of capital. Investment in funds managed by the Global Equity (GE) team may involve investment in smaller companies - these stocks may be less liquid and the price swings greater than those in, for example, larger companies. Investment in funds managed by the GE team may involve foreign currencies and may be subject to fluctuations in value due to movements in exchange rates. The team may invest in emerging markets/soft currencies or in financial derivative instruments, both of which may have the effect of increasing volatility. Some of the funds managed by the GE team hold a concentrated portfolio of stocks, meaning that if the price of one of these stocks should move significantly, this may have a notable effect on the value of that portfolio.
