Our investment philosophy

In-depth knowledge and experience acquired investing in the Latin American equity and credit markets for more than 25 years.

Our model fully integrates U.S. and Latin American local intelligence to help identify and benefit from informational, analytical and liquidity inefficiencies across the region’s complex markets.

Our investment philosophy is aimed at generating alpha through active bottom-up selection, subject to top-down considerations. Bottom-up, high-touch, original fundamental analysis and disciplined research underpins high conviction positioning, seeking to profit from long-term top performing issuers.

The Firm’s culture of discipline revolves around three pillars: investment case, investment process, and risk management. 

As stewards of clients’ financial capital, Compass Group has a stake in encouraging robust ESG practices within its invested companies. Compass Group’s fundamental bottom-up analyses have long considered ESG issues as a key input in the sustainability of an individual company’s investment case.

    Important Information

    The Investment Manager aims to achieve investors’ financial objectives while incorporating sustainability into the investment process. The Investment Manager defines sustainability as the ability to leverage the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors of business practices seeking to generate opportunities and mitigate ESG risks that contribute to the long-term performance of issuers. The Investment Manager believes that consideration of these factors and these risks will deliver better informed investment decisions. The analysis of ESG factors and risks can include many different aspects, such as the following among others: the carbon footprint, health and well-being, human rights, supply chain management, fair customer treatment and governance and the degree of deepness and consideration of such factors and risks may vary from one product to another.
