Our distinctive philosophy centers on identifying companies that are positioned for an acceleration in earnings and revenue. By focusing on the rate of change and positive earnings momentum, rather than an absolute rate of growth, we can capitalize on a different opportunity set than many competitors and gives us the potential for differentiated returns across market cycles.
We recognize the macroeconomic environment's impact on companies, but incorporate it with our bottom-up, individual stock analysis. We believe that focusing on company fundamentals rather than country headlines helps build a high conviction portfolio. It is the market's inefficiency and its slowness to recognize positive inflections points that gives our growth philosophy an advantage to discover companies ignores by our competition.
