Global Growth Equity

Our global growth equity team constructs portfolios of diverse holdings by identifying and investing in companies demonstrating accelerating earnings and other fundamentals. We believe our acceleration factors allow us to more effectively identify companies in the beginning stages of their growth cycle. This, combined with detailed fundamental analysis and a strict buy/sell discipline, is designed to help us acheive our goal of excess returns over the long-run.
