Long-term focus

Our investment philosophy centres on bottom-up research, considering each company’s fundamentals, sustainability and long-term prospects. We predominantly manage global and regional growth equity portfolios while also providing income-focused, thematic and multi-asset funds. A growing number of our strategies invest partly or exclusively in private companies. We also have impact portfolios that aim to contribute to a more sustainable and inclusive world, as well as deliver financial returns.  

One of the leading active managers of growth assets for UK defined benefit pension schemes.
