Behavioural Finance Process
Our Behavioural Finance Process is based on the belief that attractively valued, high quality stocks with positive momentum outperform the market due to pricing anomalies caused by persistent and identifiable investor behavioural biases.
Our portfolio managers select individual stocks that have one or more of the Value, Quality, and Momentum characteristics we seek from a universe of approximately 900 UK-listed stocks. We then efficiently combine these stocks to build a portfolio that is collectively cheaper, has higher quality, and has better momentum than the market. We believe that by combining stocks with strong Value, Quality and Momentum characteristics in a single portfolio we can outperform on a more consistent basis and through different market cycles.
