OUR MARKET INTELLIGENCE KEY PRINCIPLES
We look behind headline numbers.
Most managers in the top quartile have similar performance.
What distinguishes one portfolio management team from another is its performance, thought process and ability to remain disciplined.
Our manager sourcing goes well beyond looking at historical performance.
We ask the right questions.
Qualitative ones to get beneath the surface and identify their competitive advantages and key risks. These interviews are conducted over various mediums to obtain valuable and exclusive insights. We look to understand the culture of the firm and be ready to ask bold questions that require thoughtful answers and listen methodically.
We don't overlook emerging talent.
As investors seek new sources of return, it is increasingly recognized that many of these alternative sources of return come from smaller, emerging, and diverse managers who can pursue growth opportunities with fewer constraints and more flexibility than larger, established asset managers. Our sourcing policy aims to identify these emerging and promising talents to complement the broader portfolio.
