Equities

We offer a wide range of 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 stock picking approach to equity investing. We look for 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.

Combining this bottom-up analysis with in-house thematic and macroeconomic insights into markets helps us to build portfolios that can deliver consistent, long-term outperformance.

Why choose Columbia Threadneedle for equities?

A key tenet of our investment approach is research intensity. A team of over 200 investment professionals is dedicated to original independent research, the sharing of global perspectives and data analytics, across all major asset classes and markets.*

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 their fundamental analysis when assessing and engaging with candidate companies for investment.

This research intensity, combined with our expertise and our culture of collaboration, has enabled us to deliver a proven track record of strong, consistent risk-adjusted returns, making us a dependable partner for your equity investments.
