  • Our philosophy and process

    We actively manage our portfolios with a goal to outperform the indices, whatever the market conditions, and with a controlled level of risk. Our investment strategy is based on four key principles that drive our investment decisions regarding allocation, sector and stock selection.

    Our four core investment principles are:

    • Conviction: Our portfolios reflect the strongest convictions of the portfolio managers in terms of asset allocation, thematic, sector and securities selection. We aim to create value by making smart securities choices that will outperform indices.
    • Fundamentals: Our investment philosophy is based on comprehensive quantitative and qualitative analysis.
    • Contrarian: We do not follow the market consensus if we believe there is a disconnection between the fundamentals and the market's expectations.
    • Convexity: We seek asymmetrical investments, where there is high upside potential and limited downside risk.
  • Our teams

    We employ more than 70 talented professionals in Europe, including financial analysts, economists, strategists and portfolio managers, based in Paris and Marseille.

    The management teams bring together some of the most respected professionals in the business. They work together, sharing knowledge and expertise with the sole aim of meeting the long-term interests of their clients.

    The teams are organized by area of expertise: equities, fixed income and diversified management.
