Investors benefit from our established thematic approach to investing. Our integrated ESG screening criteria ensures that stewardship is fully embedded in portfolio construction, and aids risk management.
At this strategy’s core is a simple proposition: it targets businesses that return cash to investors. It’s an approach that we believe should outperform over the long term.

A focus on quality aims to bring about sustainable competitive advantaged and disciplined capital allocation.
We look for companies that have generated strong returns on invested capital and converted that profit into distributable cash flow.
