Asset Allocation: Investment Philosophy We apply fundamental, integrated and global analysis to estimate sustainable, longer-term value across markets. Periodically, we identify unstable disturbances away from longer-term equilibrium (price-value discrepancies) with sufficient conviction regarding their existence, magnitude and likelihood of convergence to justify an active allocation away from the normal benchmark. It is our aim to maximize the clients risk adjusted out-performance over a full investment cycle–taking into account the specific investment target and guidelines.
