Investment Philosophy

Our investment philosophy is based on a process that starts with your investor profile, which reflects the risk you’re willing to accept relative to the expected return. This helps us match your profile with the right investment approach.


Here’s what our investment approach boils down to:

  1. Global economic analysis (quantitative and qualitative)
  2. Asset selection and allocation by sector and geography
  3. Conviction-based positions, targets and investment strategies
  4. A decision-making matrix combining fundamental, quantitative and technical analysis for selecting investments
  5. Tracking and adjusting targets and repositioning as needed
