The Global Concentrated Growth strategy seeks to invest in companies demonstrating accelerating growth with market capitalizations of $3 billion or more located primarily in developed markets including the United States. The portfolio represents our best ideas in the global market and is designed to provide a higher alpha alternative for global allocations, and typically holding 35 to 50 securities.

  • Centers on the belief that accelerating growth in earnings and revenues, rather than the absolute level of growth, is more highly correlated to stock price performance.
  • Directs us to research different companies than other growth managers, as we do not require an absolute threshold of earnings or revenue growth.
  • Allows us to take advantage of both the normal price appreciation that results from a company's earnings growth and the market’s re-rating of a company's price-to-earnings multiple.
