R&M Global High Alpha strategy
The strategy invests in companies around the world which we believe are well positioned to provide long-term growth and attractive returns
Why Global High Alpha?
This strategy enables investors to access a portfolio that is broadly diversified across sector, capitalization tier and region. The highly regarded and experienced portfolio manager selects stocks which he believes will outperform from the growth, quality, recovery and asset-backed investment categories.
The portfolio manager invests according to River and Mercantile's long established PVT philosophy, where stocks are evaluated by a combination of their potential to create value, their valuation and the timing of buying into a position.
Sophisticated quantitative analysis and intelligent screening finds only the best opportunities for the manager and investment team to debate and validate by applying rigorous fundamental research.
