Long-term equity investors in good quality companies
We are a small team of passionate investors managing, on behalf of our clients, investment portfolios with a focus on high-quality companies that are well positioned to contribute to, and benefit from, sustainable development.
We believe that fund management has a social purpose, encouraging a savings culture around long-term investment. Our philosophy of careful stewardship is in the best interests of clients and should protect capital over the long term.
We invest over the long term across five regions – Asia, Europe, Global Emerging Markets, the Indian Subcontinent and Worldwide.
