Global High Conviction Equity

Global High Conviction Equity

Investing in a concentrated portfolio of the best ideas

Key points:

  • A concentrated, unconstrained strategy, investing exclusively in attractive global stocks 
  • Investment process fully based on bottom-up fundamental research and long-term value creation 
  • Selecting companies with high returns on invested capital, strong free cash flow and high ESG scores


We believe the market often underestimates the impact of long term value creation through the high cash returns on invested capital that result from sound business models and solid management. Our investment philosophy is rooted in our strong belief that these market inefficiencies can be exploited through an inspired, responsible and disciplined investment process.


Stock selection is the core of the process of this strategy. The quality, depth and focus of our research are the keys to accurately and consistently identifying the factors that will drive a company’s valuation. Over time, high returns on invested capital, strong free cash flow and a good ESG performance will deliver superior returns for investors. A long-term investment horizon is crucial if investors are to benefit from this potential to create value. Our motto is ‘Make your case, be skeptical and remain patient’.
