Equities

As stewards of client capital for more than thirty years, our aim is to provide portfolios driven by pragmatic investment choices. 

Vontobel has three boutiques managing a wide range of equity strategies. All of our portfolios are built on consistent investment philosophies combined with deep research, disciplined processes, and risk management.

Get active

Our equity strategies are actively managed with high-conviction investment philosophies and two primary investment styles: bottom-up stock investing and quantitative. Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues are an integral part of our bottom-up investment approach where we believe sustainable earnings growth helps drive performance.

An approach to suit your needs

Our investment strategies are based on distinctive investment processes to offer quality, growth, impact, quantitative and thematic products with global, emerging market and regional geographic options.

Fundamental

Our Quality Growth and Sustainable Equities boutiques maintain an unwavering focus on bottom-up fundamental research to help deliver high-conviction portfolios. Seeking to invest into the shares of leading global companies takes deep research and discipline to look through the market noise and invest into long-term structural demand opportunities. A strong focus on ESG is integral to the investment process across our strategies.

Quantitative

The Vescore investment philosophy of timing investments by their factor behavior (momentum, quality, value, and volatility) is based on consistent market reactions to earnings confidence and valuation. Built on a deep academic foundation, the process actively manages factor-weighted portfolios through the cycle.
