A company’s stock price reacts positively to growth in earnings and cash flow.

Indicators of sustainable earnings growth appear at the company level before they impact stock prices.

Concentrated portfolios, diversified across industries and geographic regions, deliver the most impact.


Our rigorous bottom-up selection process seeks sustainable earnings growth characteristics and incorporates them into a concentrated portfolio of companies across industries and geographic regions. We use a three step investment process that includes the construction of a global equity selection pool from securities held in our regional portfolios; screening and fundamental analysis to identify the “best stock ideas;” and lastly, team vetting and decision-making. Our concentrated portfolios have high impact growth characteristics that apply regional, sector and single stock risk controls to ensure diversification. Our Global Equity mandate holds 50-80 names, while our Global Income & Growth mandate holds 45-55 names.
