Harris uses a value investment philosophy in selecting equity and equity-like securities of US and non-US issuers. The firm's investment philosophy spans across large, mid and small cap companies. In addition, Harris may hedge a client’s exposure to direct or indirect foreign currencies. In constructing portfolios for their clients, the firm seeks out companies that they believe are trading in the market at significant discounts to their underlying value. Harris believes purchasing businesses at a discount to intrinsic value minimizes risk while providing substantial profit potential. The firm uses a bottom-up approach focused on individual companies, rather than focusing on specific economic factors or industries. Harris generates their research ideas from a variety of internal and external sources.

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.
