Our approach to active equity investing

For more than 40 years we have been investing with an eye to the future and a focus on aiming to deliver consistent returns above our stated benchmarks. In order to achieve this, we apply in-depth research and analysis  in order to identify companies  that can sustain above-average growth in earnings and revenues over a full economic cycle.

Led by our convictions and a recognition that long-term investment focus is increasingly shifting from a geographic to a thematic approach, we offer a range of solutions designed to meet the needs of our clients.

"At Framlington Equities, our highly experienced portfolio managers have full accountability for their portfolios. They are empowered to invest with conviction in a risk-monitored framework. We call this our ‘Trust but Verify' mindset and it is what underpins our success."
