EQ

Equity funds

We offer active, intelligent approaches to help unlock equities’ return potential. Our equity funds span a variety of regions, industries, market capitalisations and styles, and have been recognised by industry-leading publications across Europe and Asia. 

EQUITY OVERVIEW

In our view, thoughtful and informed active management can help investors achieve their long-term objectives. This is the way we’ve approached equity management for over 80 years. Our equity fund managers are given the freedom to develop their own individual approach to investing, which is then documented and continuously monitored by our independent product management team. The goal is to ensure that our funds are managed in line with a deeply considered, proven philosophy that sets out exactly how the manager intends to identify opportunities and control risks.

All investors should consider the risks that may impact their capital, before investing. The value of your investment may become worth more or less than at the time of the original investment.

INDEPENDENT THINKING, SHARED RESEARCH

In an effort to deliver consistent results for fund shareholders, we work together to understand every potential investment. We challenge ourselves to tune out the market’s short-term noise and focus on long-term opportunities that can help investors meet their goals.

DEEP EQUITY RESOURCES

Diverse teams pursue independent research and investment approaches, yet every fund manager has open access to colleagues worldwide who specialise in various areas of the capital markets. Our investment teams draw on rigorous, proprietary research conducted through fundamental, quantitative, macro, technical and environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) lenses. Our dedicated equity professionals include:

A DISTINCTIVE APPROACH TO EQUITY RESEARCH

Fund managers can draw on the research of our equity, fixed income, multi-asset, alternatives, macroanalysis and quantitative teams around the world, who are encouraged and incentivised to share their insights. We believe that this robust dialogue and debate help improve the quality of our decision making through timely and relevant information and rigorous scrutiny from a variety of perspectives.

"I believe a clearly defined investment philosophy, reflecting your personality, is more likely to generate consistent alpha. Investors have more confidence that you will be true to your investment process in all market environments."
