Employ both a “top down” approach wherein we research and analyse the macroeconomics of European countries to determine broad investment views, and a “bottom up” approach which leads to specific equity investments and portfolio weightings. Prioritise companies with sound financials, attractive valuations and exposure to high growth markets and skew the portfolio towards liquid stocks, large caps and blue chips. Employ no derivatives except for currency hedging or to cover a substantial market risk. Objectives Primary - Generate consistently superior risk-adjusted absolute long term capital appreciation. Secondary - Outperform European equity markets with lower comparable volatility.
