Asset Management

The start of the new year is traditionally a time of discarding unwanted presents and disposing of last year’s clutter. But before you reach for the bin, there is a growing range of reuse options available. A burgeoning group of companies are offering solutions to monetise unwanted items and extend the lives of products. The success of these businesses benefits the environment by reducing the carbon footprint, and it also indicates that consumers are increasingly embracing resale goods and internalising environmental awareness.

The case for Global Emerging Market Equities: We continue to live in a world marred with uncertainty: the emergence of the Omicron variant raises questions about what the weeks and months ahead will bring. The path of inflation has and will continue to give rise to debate and exert influence over central bankers. However, 2021 has been a lacklustre year for emerging markets in aggregate, but many matters which have hindered the asset class, appear well known, and largely priced in which could pave the way for attractive relative performance in 2022.

Market & Macro

- “Our addiction to fossil fuels is pushing humanity to the brink. We face a stark choice: Either we stop it, or it stops us,” UN Secretary General Antonio Gutierres said at the COP26 summit. While COP26 made some headway on climate commitments, the battle to constrain warming to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels by the end of the century is yet to be won, making the path to the Paris goal narrower than ever.
- The speed at which the world progresses on its journey towards a net zero carbon economy is dependent on policymakers, the targets and policies they set for reducing emissions, the willingness of companies to adapt, as well as the development and adoption of technologies that can assist in this change. Or at least buy some more time.
- Tracking this journey will give us an indication of which of the six climate scenarios developed by the Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS) is the most likely to happen. To do so, we have developed a climate credibility tracker focusing on the three core elements of corporate action, policy action and technological change. By tracking these transition enablers, we will be able to assess the credibility of the climate targets and pledges that increasing numbers of countries and companies
are adopting.

Green sovereign debt issuance is on the rise and could dramatically improve liquidity and standards across the green bond market as a whole. Investor demand is high, but it is important both not to overpay for green sovereigns and to monitor what issuers do with ‘green’ funds.

Catch-22: Unravelling the policy paradox
2021 brought the recovery many had hoped for. Economies and business reopened, but no one could describe it as getting back to normal amid rocketing energy prices, high debt levels, and past-the-peak growth.

The coming year will be defined by a number of key decisions taken by policymakers around the globe. A key dilemma is how to tighten monetary policy and rein in inflation without killing off the recovery. Another is how to cope with higher energy prices as the world transitions to a low-carbon economy.

Fine-tuning policy settings to unravel these ‘Catch-22’ dynamics - while maintaining the trust of markets - will not be easy and these conditions certainly increase the risks of a policy mistake in the coming months.

So, what does this backdrop mean for global markets and how should investors think about approaching 2022? Read, listen and watch to find out more from our investment experts as they debate the key factors and themes that will drive returns across the world’s major asset classes in 2022.

Investment Beliefs

Our investment approach
Building on active, bottom-up research, we create the competitive advantage that is able to deliver superior returns for our clients. Because markets are only semi-efficient, we act on intelligent insight:

  • We have one of the largest global research capabilities with over 400 investment professionals and research staff around the world.
  • We are committed to proprietary insights:
  • Our portfolio managers have access to in-house research, which is unavailable to others, on 90% of our fund holdings.
  • Our analysts carry out their research on the ground – visiting the shop floor, speaking to customers, competitors, suppliers, and independent experts to form conviction.
  • Over the course of a year, our portfolio managers and analysts attend more than 15,000 company meetings – or one every 8 minutes on average.
  • We commission over 250 bespoke surveys and reports a year to understand the market potential of companies’ product and service innovations.
  • We believe that responsible investing - taking into account Environmental, Social and Governance aspects - is essential in protecting and enhancing returns to our clients.
  • Our analysts work together across asset classes, e.g. combining insights from equity, credit macro and quantitative research, to form a 360° view on the health and prospects of companies.
  • Our Manager Research team covers ~160 third party investment strategies which can be built into bespoke client portfolios.
  • Our industry-leading technology platform gives our investment professionals mobile access to all research and reporting in one place. This includes risk monitoring, unique modelling, and forecasting tools. Portfolio Managers are also able to initiate trades anytime from anywhere for execution by our 24-7 global trading team.

This is how we find growth opportunities or income streams that have not been priced in by the market – allowing us to consistently add value for our clients.
