Our investment philosophy
The key to developing successful portfolios is correctly identifying long-term structural investment themes that align with the prevailing market and macroeconomic conditions.
Diversification matters. In a world where correlations between markets have converged yet continue to change, understanding how each security will react to different market forces leads to better risk-adjusted returns.
Having a deep understanding of company fundamentals is essential to finding businesses with stable cash flows, robust earnings power, and strong long-term growth prospects.
Capital preservation is of utmost importance. The priority is to avoid high-risk situations in the portfolio by adding safeguards to minimize loss.
Risk management at all levels – from portfolio construction to security selection – is key to building long-term resilient portfolios.
Taking a collaborative approach where knowledge and different viewpoints are shared, strengthens our insights when evaluating companies.

Overall Asset Allocation
Regional Breakdown – Equities
Our current asset allocation is approaching our long-term target of 75% based on gross equity exposure. However, when considering our hedges, this level is adjusted down to below 70% on a net basis. We maintained a below-average equity exposure in the second quarter due to the evolving economic landscape and the narrowness of the market.
We find high-quality Investment-Grade corporate issues particularly appealing in this environment. These short-duration issues offer attractive yields exceeding 7% while presenting limited downside risks. We are maintaining our international equity exposure, as valuations in Europe and Asia appear more favourable when compared to the United States.
