An actively managed large cap growth strategy that relies on fundamental research and analysis to identify companies with strong and accelerating business momentum, increasing market acceptance and attractive valuations.
Seeks to outperform the Russell 1000 Growth Index by 2-3% annualized before management fees over full market cycles with an expected annualized tracking error of approximately 4-6%.
Our disciplined, bottom-up investment process focuses on high-conviction stock selection. The process begins with identifying a universe of large cap stocks with market capitalizations > $2 billion. Next, a quantitative evaluation ranks the investment universe and identifies the most attractive stocks within each sector. Once the universe is ranked, the analysts concentrate their efforts on the highest ranked stocks within their sector to add insight through in-depth fundamental research and analysis. Buy and sell decisions are mainly the product of qualitative judgments about business momentum, market recognition, and valuation, as well as the attractiveness of each stock, given benchmark weight, expected return, and perceived risk.
