Our Research teams oversee our investment process and the stocks, bonds and funds that we include in our portfolios.

In addition, our Fund Manager team publishes research articles on topics that are of specific interest to investors in our Funds.

It is a virtue of our size that we do not have to have an off-the-shelf view on every investment in the universe. Our process is highly targeted: we are snipers rather than having analytical armies. Instead, we concentrate our efforts on identifying the very best stocks, bonds and funds for our portfolios. Nor do we worry about the composition of stock market indices, believing that size is no guarantee of quality, and we like to think thematically rather than over-analysing shorter-term market noise.

Our focus is on blending quality, value and momentum, to identify attractive investments for our clients.

Water Wonderful World

12 December 2023

Water as an investment theme is often overlooked, we (the human race) have set a goal to ensure the availability and sustainable management of water for all (Sustainable Development Goal 6). This is quite a feat considering only 3% of the water on Earth is fresh water and only 0.26% of that is concentrated in lakes, reservoirs and river systems where water is most easily accessible for our economic needs.

The doctor will see you now
