Our strategies

Our strategies

Hundreds of institutional investors - large and small, public and private - have entrusted us to manage their assets. We have over 800 employees that serve their very specific needs.

Our aim is to understand our institutional clients' objectives and provide appropriate investment solutions for them.

A number of attributes run through all our strategies: a focus only on areas where we believe we can truly deliver for our clients, the pre-eminence of a long-term mind-set, a team approach, the importance of innovation and a collective approach to risk management.

We do not chase every opportunity but focus resources on our key distinctive capabilities. – Renaud de Planta, Chairman 

Our analytical resources are organised along three axes: Greater Europe, where we have a natural advantage; the Emerging World, where we have been pioneers in equity, debt and credit markets; and Global Specialities, where we have a long record of developing original global investment approaches.

Our long-term values

We do not impose a single investment approach on our teams. Each team is independent, as we believe this encourages innovation and accountability. This freedom has resulted in the development of a number of pioneering strategies, from the launch of the first Water fund in 2000, to our market leading Emerging Market Debt strategies or the recent launch of our Robotics strategy.

All our investment teams are encouraged to adopt a long-term mindset, as we believe long-term investing should be the foundation of managing portfolios. This means sometimes we may need to forgo short-term returns to ultimately enhance returns in the long term.

Our investment teams are unified by a collegiate style and adhere to the highest risk management standards.

Adhering strictly to these principles has helped us become a preferred investment partner for our clients.
