International Equity

Philosophy

The International Equity team believes short term focus by the market creates opportunities to outperform by investing in businesses that can consistently grow their cash flows. The strategy seeks to manage risk through country and sector diversification while maintaining a high conviction portfolio by limiting the number of holdings.

Process and Portfolio

An initial universe of approximately 5,000 companies is narrowed down to a manageable number of portfolio candidates using proprietary quantitative screens and rigorous fundamental analysis centered on growth, valuation, business quality, management, and balance sheet strength.

The portfolio generally has 30 – 50 positions comprised of companies with a minimum market capitalization of $1 billion. The top 10 holdings typically represent more than 25% of the portfolio. 

Objective

The International Equity strategy seeks to outperform the MSCI EAFE Index with a concentrated portfolio over a full market cycle. The team executes a bottom-up, fundamental investment strategy designed to deliver growth of capital.
