Investment Philosophy

Although stock-pickers at heart, we recognize the importance of differing macro situations of the markets we invest in. An awareness of each country’s macroeconomic and political situation and its reflection in fixed income markets infuses all individual stock analysis.

We benchmark potential investments against the relevant local cost of capital. This can vary widely across different countries but is not always recognised by equity markets. Over time, such inefficiencies can create significant value opportunities. We use a proprietary system to estimate the cost of equity for all stocks within our universe. This anchors all our analysis and feeds into stock specific models.

We devote the majority of our time to meeting company management and learning about the businesses they run and invest in. This allows the team to look beyond the headline numbers and anticipate new trends and their impact on the business.

The ability of the companies we invest in to finance expansion through internal resources is a major factor in their growth. The willingness of management and controlling shareholders to share the benefits of this growth with investors are crucial to long term returns.

Over longer time periods, Emerging Markets should offer superior growth to Developed Markets, almost by definition. However, in order to fully capture its benefits, careful stock selection is paramount. We believe that the 50+ years cumulative Emerging Market investment experience of the North of South team gives our investors an edge in doing so.
