The consistent and disciplined application of such a research process is what underpins the repeatability of Milford’s historically strong investment performance.
The benefit of active management is having a team of highly motivated investment professionals working in this systematic way to identify opportunities the market has missed.
The investment process explained
The Milford investment team are engaged in constant ongoing evaluation of new information and its potential to influence the outlook for macroeconomic conditions and industry dynamics. We focus on forecasting critical turning points and identifying attractive investment themes not yet recognised the market. Sectors and individual securities captured by Milford’s Exclusion List are screened out at this stage in the investment process.
Economic and Investment Analysis
Our team conduct detailed, fundamental analysis to understand the key drivers of business profitability. Changing competitive and industry dynamics are monitored through a demanding schedule of meetings with listed companies, their competitors, customers, regulators and suppliers. Through rigorous peer review, we challenge ourselves and one another to find the best investment opportunities within an asset class, mindful of our expectations for economies and markets.
Portfolio Managers are then responsible for the final selection of securities to include within a portfolio, taking into account the return objectives and risk appetite of their investors. Portfolio positions are assessed every day for price movements, new information and updated investment views.
