2015 - Current

Antipodes Partners is an active, principled, pragmatic, value-based manager of global and Asian long only, long-short equities which aims to grow client wealth ahead of the broad market over the investment cycle without subjecting capital to undue levels of risk. They seek to identify great businesses that are undervalued and construct high conviction portfolios.The firm believes risk is best controlled by ensuring that the price paid for a stock includes a margin of safety and that in the long-term, all businesses succumb to changes in the operating environment as described by their Antipodes Capital Lifecycle Model ©.They generate ideas in an eclectic fashion. They employ “force multipliers” consisting of quantitative filters (stock, sector and geographic level screening) and qualitative input/signals (corporate and institutional changes) to focus team resources.Antipodes Partners performs fundamental research within a global context, aiming to filter short-term noise with the goal of improving their long-term judgment. They feel that team alignment results in a naturally collaborative culture and seeks to maximize the benefits of peer review without diluting overall team focus by assigning a lead analyst to each major research project, supported by a secondary analyst who acts as a sounding board on the project.The firm seeks to construct resilient portfolios that maximize risk-adjusted returns based on diversified sources of alpha and weighted according to risk/return. They believe that in high conviction portfolios of more than 30 ideas, the benefits of diversification tend to be offset by conviction drift. They use shorts and currency positions to offset unwanted risks and they protect from tail risk and aim to reduce the level of unknown portfolio risk by calculating various factor exposures and stress testing.

PIML is an active, benchmark-insensitive manager which follows a thematic, bottom-up, stock-picking approach, seeking to achieve absolute returns by investing in companies whose businesses and growth prospects are incorrectly valued by the market. Their team of analysts takes a global perspective and utilizes software and research to pinpoint opportunities, aiming to differentiate interesting companies facing temporary setbacks from those which have lesser businesses and face fundamental problems.The firm utilizes various devices to understand the universe of stocks available in a global context, including software screening which allows for the selection of companies based on very specific criteria across a databank of companies.Generation of themes and ideas is eclectic. The application of numeric skills is supported by input from observations of social and political change. Their research efforts are located in one place but operate under global mandates, facilitating the free flow of information between managers with different geographic and industry responsibilities.Once PIML identifies a prospective company, analysts evaluate them and their results are subjected to team scrutiny, aiming to expose areas of concern and potential flaws rather than to achieve a consensus. The final investment decision is between the promoter of the idea and the relevant Portfolio Manager.The firm constructs portfolios from quality companies which are experiencing temporary setbacks, aiming to produce a portfolio with below average risk characteristics.
