What is active investing?

Active investing is the process of selecting stocks to add to and remove from a portfolio, based on fundamental analysis, in an effort to outperform the broader market or a specific index on a risk-adjusted basis.

An ongoing evolution

The investment world is undergoing an enormous amount of change and active management is no different. The lack of global growth, rapidly advancing technology and new competitors means that the dynamics of the industry are evolving faster than ever. But within that change lies opportunities for those who are willing to think and invest differently.

Our approach

For more than 40 years we have been investing with an eye to the future and a focus on aiming to deliver consistent excess returns through active, fundamental, bottom-up stock selection. 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 aiming 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."
