The thematic team uses a four-step process to select the best stocks for the portfolio:
Secular themes and trends
The team searches for secular themes and trends within a strategy. Determining the right trends is a key performance driver, while capturing multiple trends ensures proper diversification of the portfolio and leads to smaller drawdowns.
Next, they identify companies positioned to benefit from these trends.
Scrutinize short-listed companies
The portfolio managers then scrutinize short-listed companies, using fundamental input from our rigorous qualitative analysis . Quality companies with pure-play exposure that grow their economic profits while growing their asset base are preferred.
Finally, the portfolio managers construct the portfolio in line with investment guidelines. Position size is based on conviction level.
