Consumer Trends Equity

Consumer Trends Equity

Investing in structural growth trends in consumer spending

Key points:

  • Identifies strong secular global growth trends from a consumer perspective
  • Ensures pure-play exposure to trends and proven businesses
  • Invests in structural winners within their industry

Philosophy

The investment philosophy for Consumer Trends Equity is based on our conviction that we can generate alpha:

  • Top-down – by identifying the most appealing trends and themes at an early stage; and
  • Bottom-up – by selecting attractively priced stocks that are set to benefit from these trends and themes.

Process

Our investment process consists of three steps: 

  1. Top-down identification of long-term trends from the consumer perspective. The three major long-term trends are ‘Digital transformation of consumption’, ‘Emerging middle class’ and ‘Health & wellbeing’.
  2. Bottom-up selection of companies that combine a high exposure to the selected themes with upside potential. 
  3. Careful portfolio construction where the size of positions is based on conviction level and risk characteristics.
