Capacidades de investimento


We offer global, regional and country specific strategies, investing across the market cap spectrum and with various risk and return objectives.

Meeting companies and conducting fundamental research lie at the heart of our equity approach. We aim to invest in companies that can create sustainable long-term value and believe that by engaging with companies we can gain a thorough understanding of their business models, company finances, competitive pressures and drivers of corporate profits.

Face-to-face meetings also provide an opportunity to question management teams on their future plans and strategies. Combining this bottom-up analysis with thematic insights into markets helps us to build portfolios that can deliver consistent, long-term outperformance.

Why Columbia Threadneedle Investments for Equities?

As active investors, we use our expertise to select the best opportunities, focusing on quality businesses with solid balance sheets and competitive advantages. These competitive edges are typically reflected by a company’s ability to increase or maintain high returns on capital and compound its earnings over time; for longer than the market assumes.
A key tenet of our investment approach is our independent research, what we call ‘Research Intensity’. We have more than 450 investment professionals based around the world, sharing global perspectives across all major asset classes and markets. It is that expertise and our culture of collaboration as well as a focus on research intensity that has allowed us to maintain strong performance over the long term.
Being a responsible investor is integral to our business proposition and defines how we act in the marketplace. We feel that it is important to create our own metrics for assessing companies and as a result we have our own Responsible Investment ratings which are used by our investment teams as a core input to fundamental analysis when assessing investment opportunities.
