Asia Ex-Japan Value Asia Ex-Japan Value is a deep-value service that seeks to capture mis-valuations through an investment process that integrates fundamental and quantitative research to determine expected returns, in an effort to generate a performance premium. Based on our intensive research, we select approximately 70-90 stocks in the Asia ex-Japan region that are trading at a discount to their long-term earnings-power potential.
China Opportunities China Opportunities seeks to generate a premium through research-driven stock selection. The investment team uses our regionally based analysts research and ratings to build portfolios of 45 to 60 companies expected to outpace consensus earnings growth, usually due to excellent management and a distinct competitive advantage, at attractive valuations.
Emerging Markets Core Emerging Markets Core seeks to achieve balanced exposure across quality, stability and reasonable price. Benchmark insensitive, high active share. Integrated quantitative and fundamental research. Premium driven by stock selection.
Global Low Volatility Global Low Volatility seeks to achieve long-term capital growth. In seeking to achieve the Portfolio's objective, the Investment Manager identifies equity securities that it believes have fundamentally lower volatility and less downside risks in the future. The Investment Manager uses its proprietary risk and return models as well as its judgment and experience in managing investment portfolios to construct a portfolio that seeks to minimize volatility while maximizing quality exposure. The Portfolio will predominantly invest in equity securities of companies in developed markets; however, the Portfolio is not restricted from purchasing equity securities in any country, including emerging markets.
Select US Equity Long Only The Select US Equity strategy invests primarily in large- and mid-cap US stocks in an effort to deliver superior returns through market cycles while maximizing risk-adjusted returns relative to the broad US equity market. Bottom-up analysis and macro insights are used to identify opportunities, which may also include some non-US and small-cap stocks. The strategy is unconstrained by market cap, style and sector, and is flexibly adapted to changing market conditions. The team focuses on companies with understandable businesses, solid long-term growth potential and high barriers to entry.
US Small/Smid Growth US SMID Cap Growth seeks to generate its premium through superior stock selection—a function of research insight and investment action. The US SMID Cap Growth Investment Team employs a highly disciplined stock selection process that marries in-depth fundamental research conducted by our four dedicated portfolio manager/analysts with quantitative analysis to identify high-quality, rapidly growing companies with earnings growth potential that appears likely to outpace market expectations.
