Daily Telegraph – Questor: is this the most thorough system of fund research?

An integral part of our investment manager research, selection and monitoring involves in-depth qualitative, psychological, organisational and behavioural evaluation led by our team of qualified psychologists.
  • Investment meets psychology

    A unique behavioural approach to manager assessment that can provide telling and valuable insights complementary to our investment analysis

  • 360 view of behaviour

    Consideration of behavioural economics, organisational and differential psychology

  • Understanding their mindset

    Motivation, lessons learnt, approach to risk, level of curiosity, emotional intelligence, attention to detail, reaction under pressure, ability to think independently, ability to delegate, teamwork, integrity, corporate culture and other behavioural characteristics that help shape our investment advice

  • Linking behaviour with performance

    Impressive investment credentials do not of themselves give rise to a superior investment manager. Behavioural factors are critical in assessing a manager’s ability to translate investment expertise into successful investment decisions and, ultimately, superior long term investment results

With approximately 20 years of our own empirical evidence we have ascertained an “ideal” profile for a successful portfolio manager.
