Initially our portfolio managers seek to identify thematic trends in the market – to provide a top down filter. We seek to identify those themes that will filter the stock universe to identify sectors and companies that will benefit from that theme. Once a sector or asset class is identified, we employ a rigorous bottom up stock selection process to identify our preferred stocks.
