Investment Process

Fundamental equity analysts, who divide coverage by sector, are responsible for providing in-depth analysis of companies and generating new buy ideas consistent with the strategy’s high quality approach, including a rigorous integrated review of financial and ESG factors. The Investment Management Committee, comprised of portfolio managers and analysts, meets periodically to review and approve recommendations to the buy-list recommended by the analysts. A strategy team, headed by the lead Portfolio Manager, rebalances the portfolio on at least a quarterly basis to identify the best subset of names from the buy-list at that particular point of time. The team leverages an optimization process that helps monitor and control portfolio characteristic exposures while overweighting companies based on a proprietary alpha score that includes an analyst rating. In this sense, the strategy is fundamentally driven, but quantitatively assisted.
