Summary

The International Equity team, part of our Active Fundamental Equity capability, follows a disciplined investment process based on fundamental analysis and bottom-up stock selection, with sector, industry and stock weights driven by an assessment of each stock’s quality and value characteristics. They believe that the best route to attractive long-term returns is through compounding and providing a measure of downside protection. The team's experience provides a competitive advantage in itself—their years of working together, their breadth of experience across sectors, and a culture of critical analysis underpin their focus on quality. The team’s long-term investment horizon seeks high-quality businesses that have the potential to compound shareholder wealth over time.

High quality companies must also have high quality managements.
