Investment process overview

Ross is a fundamentals-driven stock picker and company meetings are central to his process. The single word that can describe his philosophy is ‘change’. Material changes that drive share prices can occur at a structural level, an industry level and at the company level. Ross seeks insights into how corporate prospects are changing, which he believes are not taken into account by the market.

Many of these insights centre on underappreciated growth but he will also consider stocks for which he believes there is a material turnaround in the business. Ross and his Global Emerging Markets team work with independent experts and companies that do business with potential investee companies to crosscheck and corroborate these investment insights.

Investments in emerging markets carry an increased risk of volatility and lower liquidity than developed markets in addition to exchange rate fluctuations.
