JAM's fund managers carry out rigorous research by examining company reports, news flow and through face-to-face meetings with the senior management of the companies in their investment universe. This process provides their teams with the intelligence required to asses whether a share or bond meets the criteria for inclusion in their portfolios. The outcome is a portfolio focused on those shares or bonds that satisfy their fund managers' individual investment process and in which they have the highest belief. JAM's fund managers employ a bottom-up approach to construct portfolios specializing in UK and European equities, global financials and emerging Europe. They complement their core strengths in equity and multi-manager products with multi-asset, fixed-income and absolute return offerings. While their fund managers work as a team to share stock ideas and debate market prospects, each manager has individual responsibility for their own portfolios. JAM regularly reviews key statistics for funds and utilizes tracking error, absolute volatility and factor risk at country, industry and stock level as their main measures of risk. Their SRI team aims to deliver long-term performance by investing in companies with positive growth, supported by trends in environmental and social policies and regulations focusing on clean energy, water management, green transport, waste management, sustainable living and environmental services.

MGI's investment strategies include equities, fixed income and alternatives. For equities, the firm incorporates a range of both long-only and long/short strategies - covering most major stock markets, and a number of different investment styles. They believe that success in equity investing requires a high degree of specialism, with investment approaches honed to reflect the distinctive nuances of diverse stock markets. MGI's fixed income team offers capabilities in multi-sector bonds (including both absolute-return and market-relative strategies), corporate bonds, including financials contingent capital bonds (often known as \"CoCos\") and both local- and hard-currency emerging market bonds. The portfolio managers and analysts who specialize in these areas collaborate to share ideas on strategy, positioning and research - as well as developing a holistic view of the fixed income market. For alternatives, the firm believes that allocating to alternatives can provide a stable cornerstone for building a successful portfolio. Their offering includes capabilities in equity market neutral, directional equity long/short, gold and silver, style premia and systematic positive skew (short term managed futures) strategies. The strategies aim to deliver strong risk-adjusted returns while limiting downside, across a range of annualized target volatilities.

Bridgewater structures portfolios in a manner designed to produce consistent and uncorrelated returns. They believe that building portfolios based on risk allocations is more effective than using capital allocations; and those investors should consider their strategic asset allocation (beta) separate from tactical moves (alpha). The firm also believes investors can improve their portfolios' overall results by separately creating a well-diversified beta portfolio that is balanced against environmental biases and calibrated to one's targeted returns, and a well-diversified alpha portfolio that reduces systematic biases (and also calibrated to one's targeted returns). Bridgewater applies this approach to investing across the portfolios it manages. The firm offers an active management strategy (Pure Alpha), a constrained active management strategy that invests in a subset of the markets in which Pure Alpha invests (Pure Alpha Major Markets), an asset allocation strategy (All Weather), and an investment strategy which applies its best understanding of how to combine All Weather with tailored active market views (Optimal Portfolio).
