Our research team, led by Gil Scott, CFA, Global Director of Equity and Fixed Income Research, is organized by industry, regardless of geography. Each analyst is charged with covering securities across the globe in his or her respective industries. After meeting with company management teams and conducting extensive fundamental research, analysts provide formal recommendations that are circulated to the entire investment management team.  

We’ve designed our research team to align with the needs of our global clients, a team that is large enough to provide coverage on virtually all industries, yet is small enough to allow for constant face-to-face meetings and collaboration. All investment professionals work in the same building at our corporate headquarters.

Daily Morning Meeting

  • Interaction between analysts, portfolio managers and economists covering global equity, debt and currency markets
  • Fosters collaboration and communication
  • Encourages critical thinking – difference between information and insight
  • Constant broadening of analyst/portfolio manager knowledge base
  • Daily reinforcement that fundamental research is at the core of everything we do

Analysts’ Role

  • Serve the entire investment management organization
  • Simultaneously cover multiple industries
  • Global view
  • Market cap agnostic
  • Span the capital structure
