Asian equity

Consistent empirical processes designed with a longer-term view to investing in quality companies.

We invest in high-quality businesses throughout the Asia region with the objective of generating long-term risk-adjusted returns. Our in-house research focuses on fundamental analysis for bottom-up stock picking and risk management, plus active engagement with investee companies.

We have a consistent culture and investment philosophy that emphasises teamwork, ESG integration and risk management.1

What we offer

  • High conviction stock-picking utilising the full opportunity set
  • Diversification, incorporation of material ESG factors, and growth from Asia with tightly controlled style exposure1

Investment philosophy

Our philosophy is founded on the following beliefs:

  • Businesses that display high and/or improving return on capital with strong balance sheets and consistent cash flow generation can outpace market expectations
  • Short-term market shocks can create opportunities to buy stocks at a significant discount to what we assess is the fair value of the underlying business
  • A disciplined and unconstrained view of the benchmark can build differentiated excess returns over time

1. Certain investment strategies, asset classes, exposure and security types do not integrate ESG factors, including but not limited to money market, buy-and maintain, passive, and certain third-party sub-advised strategies or certain currency or derivative instruments. Different strategies that integrate ESG factors will be at varying stages of implementation. Please read a fund's prospectus or offering memorandum for further details.
