Investment Objective

The goal of the International Equity ADR Strategy is to consistently deliver relative outperformance over a full market cycle (three to five years) with less than commensurate risk.


We believe relative, risk-adjusted outperformance over full market cycles can be achieved through long-term ownership of a diversified portfolio of typically 65 to 85 securities that represent industry-leading companies with sustainable competitive advantages.

Investment Process

Top-down analysis:

  • Macro perspective: The team conducts a global analysis of prevailing economic, market and political conditions to identify countries with favorable long-term growth themes.

Bottom-up approach:

  • Fundamental analysis: The team identifies industry leading companies with dominant market share, sustainable competitive advantages, product or cost structure advantages, low debt, sound liquidity, a strong capital position, sustainable sales and revenue growth.
  • Country selection criteria: We invest in countries with a bias toward regions with characteristics that include political stability and general economic freedom.

International investing presents specific risks, such as currency fluctuations, differences in financial accounting standards, and potential political and economic instability. These risks are further accentuated in emerging market countries, where risks can also include possible economic dependency on revenues from particular commodities or on international aid or development assistance, currency transfer restrictions, and liquidity risks related to lower trading volumes.
