As bottom-up, fundamentals-first investors, HSMP does not maintain limits on industry or sector weightings, and while they do limit portfolio positions by company, clients' portfolios are likely to be significantly concentrated by sector, industry and/or geography, among other factors (for example, clients' portfolios can have over 50% exposure to the consumer discretionary, consumer staples and/or technology sectors). HSCM takes an incremental approach to actively managing client portfolios. Their annual portfolio turnover rate has ranged generally between 65% to 95% (measured in dollars), and is comprised of new names and incremental changes to existing positions.
