Philosophy

NS Partners’ investment philosophy rests on a belief that liquidity and the supply and demand for equity drives markets. We believe that companies generating an improving rate of economic profit will exhibit superior long-term share price performance.

As a research-driven active manager of global equities, we combine bottom-up fundamental company analysis with industry, sector and regional analyses. Our investment style is core with a growth bias, and predominantly large cap.

We utilize the stock-picking skills of each of our managers in their respective areas of specialization to identify companies with distinct competitive advantages that are generating a high or improving return on invested capital with good earnings momentum. At the same time, the focus on economic profit analysis allows us to consistently avoid companies which tend to underperform the market over the long term.

Emphasis is placed on macro liquidity analysis for assessing the broad market environment and prospects for regional performance. We maintain a strategic bias to those companies, industries and countries that have superior long-term growth potential.

Our overall objective is to maximize exposure to the best market opportunities while keeping portfolios within acceptable risk tolerance levels and ensuring proper diversification of investment ideas. To consistently add value through all phases of the market cycle, we believe it is necessary to have a process that is systematic and disciplined. All components of portfolio construction are considered carefully.
