  • daily meetings to discuss findings and allocate tasks

Stock research

  • phase 1 – ‘Quality Web’ assessment
    – strength of management
    – balance sheet
    – earnings
    – industry structure
    – ESG review
  • phase 2 – fundamental bottom up valuation and investment thesis

Portfolio construction

Recommended stocks considered given:

  • top-down considerations
  • portfolio characteristic impacts
  • stock and sector correlation analysis
  • after-tax consideration
  • monthly ICM review provides strong oversight of process

Portfolio management

  • conclusions constantly retested
  • sell decisions based on:
    – reach target valuation

This process is adapted for the Australian Equities Income Portfolio and the Australian Equities Socially Responsible Portfolio to take into consideration the respective income and socially responsible investing criteria specific to these portfolios.
