Walter Scott's investment research team is grouped into three geographical regions - EMEA (Europe, Middle-East and Africa), Americas, and Asia Pacific - with individuals periodically rotated across these teams in order to build global knowledge and investment expertise. Research is consciously bottom-up and all investment professionals are generalists, covering all sectors. Irrespective of mandate, every portfolio is managed by bringing together the skill, judgment and experience of both the Investment Research team and the Investment Executive. A fundamental, bottom-up investment approach combines detailed financial research with business and industry analysis. Each company is researched using the same pillars of analysis. Meetings with company management are central to the process. Walter Scott's research process begins with financial statements from the company's annual report and accounts which are analyzed and interpreted through a standardized framework. This is quantitative, thereafter, everything is a qualitative judgment about the investment candidate. Investment decisions rest upon original research conducted in-house.
