First-hand global research

On-the-ground, globally integrated research is the basis for identifying long-term investment opportunities.

  • We commit substantial resources to global research - our analysts make thousands of research visits around the world each year.
  • We view research as a career option, not just a stepping stone to portfolio management; consequently, our analysts get to know the companies they cover over several years and market cycles.
  • Our analysts manage money directly within client portfolios, giving them the opportunity to put their best ideas to work.

  • Sharing insights across asset classes is one of our competitive advantages.
  • Equity, fixed income and private equity analysts meet regularly, both formally and informally, to discuss investment themes and challenge one another‘s assumptions.
  • Such a process delivers compelling investment ideas and gives portfolio managers a broader and deeper understanding of risk.
