Capital at risk

Investment strategy

ACWI ex US All Cap

We have three core beliefs: superior profit growth leads to outperformance; fundamental analysis enables exploitation of market inefficiencies, and share prices reflect fundamentals in the long term.

Identifying the drivers of growth

A growth portfolio taking the best ideas from firmwide research. For over 30 years, International All Cap has had a consistent investment process, actively making long-term investments in growing companies. 

International All Cap Q1 investment update

The International All Cap Team reflects on recent performance, portfolio changes and market developments over the last quarter.

Searching for superior companies

To perform better than the market, you need to be different from it. We look to invest in businesses that exhibit some combination of sustained, above-average growth and strong competitive advantage, such as superior profit margins or returns on invested capital.  

We believe that stock markets have a recurring tendency to under-appreciate the value of long-term compound growth. We aim to take advantage of this by investing with a minimum time horizon of five years in mind. 

An eclectic portfolio

We take great pride in drawing from firmwide research to bring our best international ideas to the portfolio.  

We search for growth across the market cap spectrum. The result is a portfolio tilted towards the lower end of the benchmark’s market cap range. We think this is a fertile hunting ground for focused, well-run growth companies. 

The strategy has a long and proud history. Our track record has outlived personnel changes by following a consistent investment philosophy and process. 

Human ingenuity will continue to generate opportunities for strong returns long into the future.
