At Ignis Asset Management we add value to portfolios through active management and specialisation, with our investment professionals solely focused on their particular area of expertise. In place of a large unwieldy investment department, our proprietary investment team is split into a series of separate, autonomous units each operating like an individual boutique in their own right. They are free to devise an appropriate strategy, investment process and style for their particular asset class. These are regularly appraised at process days where team members all contribute to overall portfolio management.
Rather than separate the roles of investment manager and analyst, we combine them to provide individuals with a wider perspective and understanding of the stocks in which they invest. We also ensure the free flow of investment ideas through our mentoring system, regular meetings and global sector analysis.
We give our fund managers freedom and allow them to invest with conviction. Risk management is equally crucial and all portfolios are therefore subject to rigorous checking procedures and risk control mechanisms using state-of-the-art systems.
An additional check exists in the form of our performance review group, which meets the heads of desks each quarter to assess fund performance and where appropriate to challenge the investment team.
