Our approach is unique in that we segment the SA equity market into 11 Areas of Opportunity:
Each area of opportunity requires our analysts to follow a different analytical approach so that each share can be evaluated correctly. There are added diversification benefits to investing in each unique segment.
We have incorporated our methodologies into a proprietary stock-picking engine, called Top-seg, which dynamically weighs up value vs. quality+growth on a real time basis.
This stock-picking engine allows us to rapidly evaluate value in a volatile environment and make investments when the risk-reward ratio is at is most favourable. As a result we see beyond short-term volatility giving us a better perspective of long-term value and give us greater conviction when making investments. We combine this stock-picking engine with quantitative asset allocation and risk management to further improve the risk-reward ratio of our portfolios.
