Our seasoned portfolio managers and analysts work in sector-focused investment teams, combining deep industry knowledge with bottom-up fundamental research. Our rigorous investment process and market-neutral risk framework allow us to form differentiated views and make thoughtful, risk-adjusted investments.
Our investment professionals specialize in a narrow subset of their industry. They develop a deep understanding of the companies they cover and build long-standing, trusted relationships with management teams.
We aspire to be the highest-performing equities team in the industry. We pride ourselves on our reputation for discipline and operating with the utmost integrity. As a result, we’re a destination for building impactful careers.
Our team is made up of extremely bright, driven individuals who thrive in entrepreneurial environments. Everyone contributes ideas and challenges one another to pursue the best outcomes. Performance and initiative are met with resources, new opportunities and greater growth potential.
A focus on career development bolsters our team’s success. Early-career professionals receive tailored training from some of the leading minds in finance and one-on-one coaching from committed mentors.
Investment professionals learn to take risk early to hone their investment process. Whether mock trading or gradually growing their own book as analysts, up-and-coming professionals build and own responsibility for their track record while benefiting from feedback and individual support.
We provide the best tools and resources in the industry so our investment professionals can focus on investing. Our team benefits from the full scale of our firm, from advanced data and analytics to team-building resources.
