Marathon-London's investment philosophy guides a focused team of individually accountable portfolio managers who apply the capital cycle approach to seek investment opportunities across the market. The firm's portfolios are very well diversified in terms of geography, sector and most importantly, individual stock risk - the last of these due to the larger than peer average number of individual holdings. The portfolio managers periodically review the major \"active\" portfolio positions such as the weighting of the portfolio relative to the weighting in the benchmark in terms of country, sector, size and other factors. Marathon-London's small, centralized and non-hierarchical structure facilitates open and frequent communication. Each portfolio manager makes his own independent investment decisions which are then combined into the strategy's overall portfolio. The firm employs a bottom-up approach to select stock, evaluating sectors and companies, complemented by country. They utilize a capital cycle approach to identify and target out-of-favor sectors, looking for profitability where competition is low. They also carry out interviews to assess the quality of a business, management incentives and the reinvestment rationale.
