Longstanding Portfolio Managers, Collaborative Team
The collaborative team of portfolio managers and analysts are dedicated to a shared investment philosophy and process.
The Loomis Sayles Global Equity Fund aims to provide a rate of return (after fees and expenses and before taxes) which exceeds the return of the MSCI All Countries World Index over a full market cycle.
The Loomis Sayles Global Equity team believes investing in companies with their three alpha drivers, where the risks can be quantified, can help deliver potential outperformance.
Specifically, the team believes there are three alpha drivers critical to generating long-term performance: quality, intrinsic value growth and valuation. They believe quality companies, with an ability to grow intrinsic value over time, and that trade at an attractive valuation, are key to long-term alpha generation against a global universe. The team also believes that market prices can reflect a company’s fundamentals over the long term, but may diverge over the short term.
Lastly, the team invests only in its best ideas as it believes risk can be best managed by focusing on a concentrated number of stocks. Conducting in-depth research on a select group of names allows the team to fully understand and quantify risk.
