As bottom-up, fundamentals-first investors, HSMP does not maintain limits on industry or sector weightings, and while they do limit portfolio positions by company, clients’ portfolios are likely to be significantly concentrated by sector, industry and/or geography, among other factors (for example, clients’ portfolios can have over 50% exposure to the consumer discretionary, consumer staples and/or technology sectors). HSCM takes an incremental approach to actively managing client portfolios. Their annual portfolio turnover rate has ranged generally between 65% to 95% (measured in dollars), and is comprised of new names and incremental changes to existing positions.

Tod's SpA Apparel & Footwear - Sant'elpidio a Mare, Italy

Tod's SPa The story begins in the early 1900s when Diego Della Valle's grandfather, Filippo founded a small shoe factory. In the 70's, a major turnaround: from a family run business to an industrial company, this happens when Diego Della Valle enters the firm and leads the development of the business. Today, Tod's SpA is the operating holding of a Group, amongst the leading players which produce and sell shoes and luxury leather goods, with the brand names Tod's and Hogan, dealing also in the casual wear sector with the brand FAY. The brands of the group, all with their own personal identity, are linked by the same philosophy, which distinguishes itself for a well-balanced mix of tradition and modernity, high quality, creativity and functionality. The high standard of quality met by the products is guaranteed by the strong craftsmanship involved in every and each phase of the production: every product is hand made, crafted with techniques of the highest skilled handcraftsmanship. After various production steps and control phases the product is destined to become an exclusive and distinguishable object. Every brand includes products recognised to be "must have" objects as for example, Tod's, Driving Shoe and D bag and Hogan Traditional and Interactive shoes. All products are crafted in the Groups' owned factories, a total of 6 for shoes and 2 for leather goods, and in a limited number of specialised laboratories (with which the Group has bonded long term business relations). The buying of materials, the supervision of all the production phases and the control of the finished products, are centralised at the headquarters - this is done for all of the products as well as for the ones created in the external laboratories
