Investment Philosophy

Our equity investment teams share the philosophy of quality Growth at a Reasonable Price (GARP). Their investment approach is to:

  • Focus on a three to five-year view of future earnings growth to identify unrecognized growth opportunities
  • Identify quality companies through fundamental bottom-up research that combines quality, growth and upside disciplines

Our Value Add

A Focus on growth

  • Our quality Growth at a Reasonable Price (GARP) philosophy identifies companies with the strongest  potential for growth
  • We invest in European (ex UK) companies under €5 billion in size that we believe can provide more attractive growth rates and greater mispricing opportunities than larger companies

Actively managed, high conviction

  • Our portfolios are constructed from our highest conviction ideas and have high active share
  • We invest in companies that score highly for quality, growth and upside; robust debate and rigorous challenge help build conviction in our ideas

Small-cap expertise

  • Our experienced small-cap equity team has a track record of delivering strong risk-adjusted returns and operates a strict sell discipline that helps mitigate downside risk
  • The team draws on the investment ideas generated by the Pan European equity team and the other specialist equity investors at Barings
