GQG Partners Awarded Fund Manager of the Year

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. — Global asset manager GQG Partners has won the International Equities – Global category at the 2022 Zenith Fund Awards.

Hosted by Zenith Investment Partners, the Awards are designed to recognise excellence in funds management across all asset classes and disciplines, while also raising the standard of funds management to the benefit of investors.

The GQG global equity strategy seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in the equity securities of both U.S. and non-U.S. issuers that GQG believes are undervalued by the market. GQG believes that concentrated portfolios of high-quality companies with durable earnings, managed in a benchmark-agnostic fashion, will enable them to offer attractive risk-adjusted returns against the market index.

According to GQG Partners managing director, Australia and New Zealand, Laird Abernethy, the Zenith accolade is testament to the strength of the investment process and the skills of the portfolio managers in identifying market risks and opportunities.

“Our investment philosophy at GQG is centred around identifying those companies that exhibit strong ‘forward looking’ quality attributes. Pragmatically speaking this means our traditional and non-traditional analysts are much more focused on assessing the future potential quality attributes of a company rather than their historic or current attributes. It’s an inherently qualitative process, that we believe allows us to strip away labels like value and growth in favour of long-term compounding.”

“We evaluate each business based on financial strength, sustainability of earnings growth, and quality of management, and seek to apply that approach to every prospective stock within the markets we operate. It’s pleasing that Zenith has acknowledged this approach with an award win in this category,” he said.

Judging for the Zenith Fund Awards is based on long-term factors derived from due diligence of fund managers including organisational and investment team strength, investment philosophy, security valuation and selection, portfolio construction, risk management, and fees. The research house also looks at quantitative aspects of the funds longer-term returns to investors.
