STRATEGY

Our strategies

Our aim is to understand our institutional clients' objectives and provide appropriate investment solutions for them.

A number of attributes run through all our strategies: a focus only on areas where we believe we can truly deliver for our clients, the pre-eminence of a long-term mind-set, a team approach, the importance of innovation and a collective approach to risk management. Our analytical resources are organised along three axes: Greater Europe, where we have a natural advantage; the Emerging World, where we have been pioneers in equity, debt and credit markets; and Global Specialities, where we have a long record of developing original global investment approaches.

We do not impose a single investment approach on our teams. Each team is independent, as we believe this encourages innovation and accountability. This freedom has resulted in the development of a number of pioneering strategies, from the launch of the first Water fund in 2000, to our market leading Emerging Market Debt strategies or the recent launch of our Robotics strategy.

All our investment teams are encouraged to adopt a long-term mindset, as we believe long-term investing should be the foundation of managing portfolios. This means sometimes we may need to forgo short-term returns to ultimately enhance returns in the long term. Our investment teams are unified by a collegiate style and adhere to the highest risk management standards.

Adhering strictly to these principles has helped us become a preferred investment partner for our clients.

EQUITIES

We have over 100 investment professionals focused on equity investing split across six investment centres: Phuket  Thailand Geneva Zurich London Tokyo Hong Kong and Singapore.

A pioneering approach to equity investing

We are not tied to any particular style or school of investing. This is because we acknowledge there is no single approach that works for all markets at all times. As a result, our equity teams span fundamental, quantitative, style-based and thematic approaches.

As we do not impose a single investment approach, our investment teams have the freedom to develop compelling investment ideas that meet our clients' goals.

This means at times we have been an early mover. For example, we launched our first thematic fund in 1995 and the industry's first water fund in 2000.  Meanwhile our global emerging market equity strategy dates back to the mid 1980s.

We also offer a range of well established global and developed market strategies including defensive global, EAFE, Japan, Europe and Asean equities.

Our experience in dealing with the rigorous and varied requirements of institutional investors means we are experienced in offering tailored, comprehensive and transparent risk management as an integral part of our ongoing relationship with our clients.

FIXED INCOME 

We cultivate the independence of our investment teams which we believe is crucial to encouraging innovation and delivering the best outcomes for clients.

Specialist teams supported by well-resourced investment platform

We have been building our fixed income business since the early 1990s, adding to our capabilities as we have sought to meet client demand and sourced compelling future market opportunities.

Our team of nearly 90 fixed income investment professionals is based in Geneva, London, Singapore and Hong Kong. Our traders and product specialists offer the support that ensures our independent asset management teams can stay focused on generating the best possible risk-adjusted returns.

 

Our priority is ensuring that each one of our independent fixed income teams is focused only on investing, while benefiting from the support of our wider platform. 

 

We do not impose a central investment style on our fixed income teams. But each team adheres to three broad principles:

Diversification, which is at the core of all of our fixed income portfolios.

A free exchange of ideas generated by our experienced analysts and encouraged by our team-based approach, followed by the clear ownership of investment decisions by the portfolio managers.

Risk management, which is key to achieving investment objectives.

ALTERNATIVES

Volatile equity markets and low bond yields mean clients are increasingly turning to market neutral and directional strategies. The development of our Aura Total Return range has been a natural extension for us given our consistent emphasis on delivering alpha in our long-only strategies extensive research resources and history of developing innovative investment strategies.

Market-leading hedge fund strategies : We have had funds with long-short investment approaches since 2004 but demand for absolute rather than relative returns picked up after the 2008 global financial crisis. We now offer a broad range of hedge fund strategies investing in equity, fixed income and multi strategy approaches, across global and regional mandates. The funds span market-neutral and relative-value long/short vehicles.

For over 10 years we have shown our commitment to institutions looking for alternative return sources by building a well-resourced range of hedge fund strategies. 

The support of a wider investment platform: Each of our total return strategies is run by a specialist, but crucially they benefit from the wider operational platform and risk oversight of being within an established European Asset Manager. Operationally this includes a dedicated trading desk just for our total return teams, but also encompasses access to wider investment and research teams within Aura Asset Management as well as the access to external corporate management teams.
