The strategy has a flexible approach to investing, that is why we have flexible in our name. We do not limit our investment universe by exclusively investing in fast growing companies or by focusing only on companies that trade on cheap multiples and are represented in a value index. In our view, “value” can be found even in growthy companies as long as the stock is trading below its intrinsic value. We like to refer to our investment approach as having a “value philosophy”, which is distinct from a “value style” of investing. Simply put, we are looking to invest in good businesses at bargain prices.

Listen to our Flexible Equity Strategy's Portfolio Manager, Maneesh Bajaj, discuss his investment approach:

The Flexible Equity Strategy invests in a portfolio of diversified, high-quality businesses with sound management teams and competitive advantages that we believe can produce above-average growth over a full market cycle.
