At the core of our active investment philosophy and invstment process lies our belief that capital markets are not entirely efficient: not all publicly available information is correctly considered by the market all the time. Market valuations at a given point in time merely reflect the balance of the market participants’ expectations – but not necessarily all relevant that is actually available. With our own comprehensive research, we identify the most important factors for market prices and spot inefficiencies in the market. These factors comprise financial as well as non-financial aspects (e.g. ESG factors, carbon footprint and reputational risks/exclusions).
On this basis, we uncover investment opportunities which we profitably exploit for our funds. We ensure this through disciplined, clear and yet flexible investment and decision-making processes. This process is centered on the timely recognition of investment themes and trends and the resulting selection of securities with above average share price potential. Our team structure, and the fact that each fund is managed by one portfolio manager, ensures clear accountability for research as well as on the portfolio construction. The results are constantly reviewed by our integrated portfolio monitoring and risk management process.
