We endeavor to deliver superior returns that outperform the benchmark over a full market cycle.
GQG Partners offers four long-only investment strategies: US Equity, Global Equity, International Equity and Emerging Markets Equity. We invest in high-quality companies that we believe can sustain superior earnings growth over the long term and are available at a reasonable price. We seek to achieve long-term capital appreciation and avoid pursuing short-term gains based on volatility in the equities, credit, and commodities markets. We strive to generate alpha returns over the full market cycle with lower-than-market volatility.
We employ a bottom-up approach to stock selection. While we do not believe that macroeconomic factors can be ignored when evaluating businesses, we do not focus our analysis on macro factors such as interest rate direction or GDP growth. Rather, we emphasize the underlying quality of our portfolio companies and invest in those that we believe can perform even in adverse market environments. It is our core belief that a company’s underlying strength outweighs its macro environment in the long run, and we can only fully ascertain this strength through fundamental bottom-up analysis.
Our long-term orientation enables us to take advantage of dislocations in markets and to compound returns when we find long-tail growth opportunities. Being benchmark agnostic is essential to this approach. Quality stocks often trade below their intrinsic value due to the preponderance of short-term thinkers. GQG’s high alpha proposition results from our emphasis on exploiting the mispricing of long-tailed assets in a market that is intensely focused on the next quarter or year, but less interested in a company’s profitable growth prospects over the next five years and beyond.
This investment approach has been developed and refined over our Portfolio Manager’s 20+ years of portfolio management experience.
