Fundamental equity strategies

Our diverse equity portfolio management teams pursue independent research and investment approaches.

SOLUTIONS FOR A VARIETY OF CLIENT NEEDS

Nearly 300 equity investment professionals around the world pursue independent research and investment approaches, while tapping colleagues worldwide in a highly communicative environment. We believe this combination of autonomy and collaboration is a powerful advantage when investing in the vast global equity markets.

Why invest with us

LOCAL KNOWLEDGE, GLOBAL REACH

We believe that thorough understanding of a region makes us better investors. Members of our global equity research and investment team live, work, and travel around the world, seeking broader insight and deeper knowledge.

DIVERSITY OF THOUGHT

Having a variety of perspectives helps generate new ideas, encourage sound investment decisions, and may mitigate risk. We believe our clients may benefit from our ability to consider a range of worldviews spanning age, gender, and culture.

COLLABORATION IS A SHARED VALUE

We believe that exchanging and debating ideas puts risks and opportunities into clearer focus and generates a wider range of ideas. We work interdependently, leveraging each other’s insights and always remembering that better client results are the collective goal.

COMMUNICATION AND RESEARCH

Portfolio managers and analysts regularly participate in our daily global Morning Meeting, travel to speak with companies around the world, and welcome company management teams to onsite meetings at Wellington.
