OUR APPROACH

Conviction and responsibility as inspiration

Our ambition is to offer our clients innovative, high-performance investment solutions that are managed with conviction and responsibility.

Proprietary research as a source of added value

From the outset, we have chosen to develop our own research. Firstly, ESG research, so that our investments respond to the major issues of today and tomorrow. And then fundamental research, for an in-depth analysis of companies, countries and sectors in order to uncover opportunities and anticipate risks. Finally, quantitative research, to broaden our investment universe and provide an additional perspective. The depth of our research is the result of a continuous investment in technology and people, continuously fed by dedicated, experienced and stable teams working in total synergy.

A structured and coherent investment process

While investment approaches differ across strategies, our investment philosophy is built on a disciplined process that combines fundamental analysis, ESG analysis and quantitative tools as appropriate. The combination of these techniques allows us to define the investment framework and restrictions for each strategy, with fully integrated risk management. It ensures transparency in our investment and divestment decisions in an increasingly complex environment. Our ability to leverage these approaches is an asset for our clients. .

A pact of trust

Our long-term vision is part of the relationship we have with our clients, which is based on listening to them and proposing investment solutions that meet their needs and constraints. We do what we say we will do, and this seals the pact of trust between us. Finally, our affiliation with a long-term investor, the New York Life Group, with its 175-year history and status as market leader in life insurance in the United States, defines the time horizon in which we place ourselves: we are here to stay, close to our clients.

Investing with a conscience

Our ambition is to offer our clients innovative investment solutions that have a positive impact on the economy. We offer a wide range of funds whose common denominators are the principles of conviction and responsibility that form our brand

    Global Sovereign Bond Yield - Catch them while you can!

    Recent rises in inflation -- to levels not seen in decades -- have negatively affected returns across most asset classes. Rate rises have been some of the steepest seen in many decades. In the current environment, as we move further into resolute central bank tightening, we may see a considerable cooling down in global economies.
