Polaris is a deep value unconstrained global equities manager who invests across the market capitalisation spectrum. Based in Boston, Polaris has a 30 year investment history. The founder of the firm and lead portfolio manager, Bernard Horn, has interesting insights and a strong conviction to his philosophy. The Polaris Global Equity Strategy follows a very clearly defined investment approach, whereby all investments are subject to a proprietary cost of equity calculation which avoids 'false value', and invests only in true value opportunities. The strategy offers investors access to true global exposure through allocation to a large number of countries, including emerging markets, i.e. access to true value, regardless of location. Historically the strategy has demonstrated ability to fully participate in the upside of strong market rallies, while limiting the downside capture, a unique return profile with low correlation to many existing strategies in the market.
Antipodes Partners is a pragmatic value manager of global equities founded in 2015 by Jacob Mitchell, former Deputy Chief Investment Officer of Platinum Asset Management, together with a number of former colleagues and like-minded value investors. Antipodes’ approach seeks to take advantage of the market’s tendency for irrational extrapolation around change, identify great business that are not valued as such and build high conviction portfolios (30-60 holdings) with a capital preservation focus.

Orbis was established in 1989 with an investment approach and structure that underpin different long-term thinking. They don’t try to invest like everyone else and look past the headlines and focus on the future, taking advantage of opportunities to buy businesses for less than they're worth. It may be strong companies trading at low prices because they’re perceived as boring, or well performing companies that they believe can do even better. Orbis is privately owned, so there is no external pressure for instant success. Orbis’ flagship Global Equity strategy provides access to their contrarian long-term investment approach - unchanged for over 25 years. It offers better diversity across sectors, geographies and companies than domestic equities, and is actively managed to look very different from the benchmark. With an investment team located around the globe, clients benefit from a truly international perspective.
