Active management, excess returns
BT Investment Management is an active manager focused on generating excess returns (alpha) from bottom-up and top-down strategies. These strategies are employed across a variety of products to meet the changing demands of investors.
We believe market inefficiencies can be identified and exploited. When markets are inefficient, markets and securities can be mispriced. These securities tend to revert back to what we consider to be theirá‘true’ or inherent value – but this process can take time. An active investment approach and rigorous research aims to identify and exploit these inefficiencies.
Multiple alpha sources
To ensure consistency of performance, we believe it is also important to focus on signals and triggers that generate long-term flows within and across asset classes. These beliefs are captured through our investment processes, which are focussed on extracting excess returns from multiple sources.
The management of risk is central to our investment philosophy and is embedded in our investment processes. We believe that risks must be understood, quantified and controlled before investment decisions are undertaken as a risk-controlled environment can improve the consistency of returns.
