Portfolio management process
In this phase, the French equity investment universe (all cap sizes) is screened by applying quantitative filters comprising exclusion and liquidity criteria.
Following this screening, the portfolio management team selects companies using ESGcriteria, favouring companies with a higher-than-average score (5,5/10) in accordance with our proprietary methodology.
The team then performs an in-depth fundamental analysis of short-listed companies (growth drivers and prospects, profitability profile, FCF, etc). This analysis is systematically supplemented by in person meetings with the Management teams of the companies in order to test the portfolio management team's assumptions and in particular to review their strategy and resilience over the medium/long term.
During the portfolio construction phase, the weight of each instrument is determined according to its performance potential and volatility level.
Investment decisions incorporate financial as well as non-financial criteria. The integration of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) criteria in the stock picking process is aimed at assessing each company’s ability to transform sustainable development issues into performance drivers. The mutual fund promotes environmental or social characteristics, or a combination of those characteristics, within the meaning of Article 8 of the SFDR.
