Manager Research & Selection | Equity
Rethinking equity manager research
Our experienced equity team works with investors around the world on active, passive and smart beta strategies for all developed and emerging markets.
Managers are assessed and scored based on what matters to the investor, such as providing diversified exposures versus retained equity managers or a close alignment of investment philosophy. The integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations has been of critical importance. All equity searches also incorporate Style Research analysis as standard, to provide an additional lens on managers’ exposures.
