PIML seeks a broad range of investments whose businesses and growth prospects are being inappropriately valued by the market. To do this, the firm employs a team of specialist investment analysts who take a global perspective and apply screening and intensive research to identify investment opportunities. They use various methods to make sense of the universe of stocks available around the world. These include screening which allows for the selection of companies based on very specific criteria (screens) across a databank of companies. PIML is able to delve deeply into cross-comparative studies of companies around the world, thereby drawing up short-lists for more intense study. In setting these screens, the firm may build on a hypothesis regarding social, political, or economic change. Once a company has been identified as a potential investment opportunity, it is investigated by the investment analyst who will call on the resources available to PIML. These may include material from the company itself and its competitors, reports from stockbroking analysts and industry material. The firm may utilize a multi manager approach in the investment decision making process for providing investment advisory services to funds and client portfolios. PIML’s investment strategies include: adopting a bottom-up stock selection methodology, through which long term capital growth is sought by investing in undervalued securities around the world; seeking absolute returns and not returns relative to any index; investing excess funds in cash when undervalued stocks cannot be found; and actively managing currency.
