Small Cap Equities
Europe ex-UK Small & Mid Cap
Our team aims to deliver long-term capital growth by investing in small cap companies, targeting strong risk-adjusted returns through a disciplined approach to stock selection.
Our investment philosophy reflects our understanding that equity markets are inefficient and risky, and we believe that over the long term, stock selection can add value.
- Our Growth at a Reasonable Price (GARP) approach seeks to identify companies that we believe are mispriced on a longer-term basis
- We seek to achieve attractive risk-adjusted returns through a disciplined, bottom-up approach and a risk-aware portfolio construction process
- We utilize proprietary valuation models that incorporate ESG analysis and macro considerations
Our Value Add
- Our diversified global team of 45+ investment professionals produces proprietary company research that drives our stock selection
- We focus on a five-year research horizon, as we believe market inefficiency is more pronounced over this period
- Our Cost of Equity (COE) captures and quantifies systematic and idiosyncratic risk and incorporates these into our valuation and setting of price targets
- ESG analysis is fully embedded into our investment process, which means it influences both our qualitative assessment and final COE of a company
- Proprietary portfolio construction tools support our stock selection and risk management, enabling us to potentially deliver high risk-adjusted returns
In our experience, the time invested in relationships, is time well spent.
We strive to improve every day—to innovate, to adapt, and to evolve alongside our clients—and to always remember the real-world impact of every investment decision we make.
