Balancing sustainable quality and value
Jeremy Hewlett provides insight into navigating the UK equity market to find sustainable quality and value.
Navigating climate change
Climate change factors pose real long-term risks to companies, industries and countries in which they operate. Discover how we think differently here.
Where there is a disconnect between the quality of an asset and its price – our definition of a ‘value’. We are seeking quality franchises where the current price understates its quality.
At least 50% of the portfolio is concentrated into the 10 highest conviction positions with the least downside risk. The balance consists of smaller position sizes to provide sufficient scope for diversification.
We invest in companies that we can understand and value. In certain companies, such as in sectors like banks or biotech, we take a cautious approach in how we value them.
Scale : We focus on companies that have the ability to scale. They share important key attributes: Asset light, large addressable markets, digitally enabled and they enjoy recurring revenues.
Optionality : We look for companies where intrinsic value is not recognised by the market through characteristics such as unidentified revenue opportunities, cross-sell potential and assets or cash on the balance sheet.
Low risk : The price we pay is our key measure of risk. We are focused on owning cash generative companies with strong balance sheets, solid management and ESG integrity, where price has not been fully recognised by the market.
We don’t distinguish between traditional ‘value’ and ‘growth’ definitions - we consider any quality company that has growth potential
