Investment Approach

The market often underestimates the ability of highly innovative businesses to sustain high returns on capital and strong growth over the long run. Many such highly innovative companies also lead their peers in ESG best practices.

We seek to identify and invest in high-quality innovators through a combination of a detailed fundamental analysis and Columbia Threadneedle’s proprietary ESG research.

We utilise a ‘stewards-of-capital’ and competitive advantage framework to identify companies that can sustain and accelerate profitable growth over the long term, with a focus on return on invested capital. We work closely with our RI team to build a high conviction, best ideas portfolio of emerging markets innovative, ESG-friendly companies.

As we take a ‘go anywhere’ approach, stock selection drives sector and country weightings, and we believe our focus on long-term sustainable practices will drive outperformance across a range of market conditions.
