Company Overview

Global Thematic Partners, LLC ("GTP") is an independent investment management firm with offices in New York and London. Our singular focus is thematic investment, a powerful approach that we have refined over a period of many years to anticipate and capitalize on discontinuity and change around the world. We believe that big shifts in economics, social science and – above all – natural science are highly non-linear developments; seeking inflection points and uncovering hidden optionality are hallmarks of our investment process. We couple thorough and independent research with risk management to seek long-term value creation for our clients. GTP serves select institutional clients in separately managed accounts, as well as retail investors through sub-advised pooled funds.

 

Investment Strategies

Global / International Thematic Equity Product

Our flagship thematic investment strategy is truly global in scope, and focused on identifying enduring themes that will influence the valuation and cash flows of select companies worldwide. Partnerships with both traditional and non-traditional sources, including industry experts, academics, trade journalists and over 1,200 company meetings per year enable us to identify themes, opportunities and risks early enough to capitalize on them. We conduct our own research and we have the benefit of patience: each of our 13 themes functions as a separate sub-strategy with low correlation, providing diversification benefits and creating opportunities for outperformance over a market cycle.

Our theme filters — based on in-depth fundamental research and defined by quantitative and qualitative criteria — focus our research mission and guide us to investment opportunities. We then compile “short lists” for each theme based on comprehensive financial modeling and the application of geography-transcending cash flow metrics to assess valuation attractiveness. Our methodical and disciplined portfolio construction process involves spirited debate and rigorous analysis to ensure that capital is allocated to the high-conviction ideas that offer the most risk-adjusted upside opportunity. Risk management is a core discipline and a key element of our culture, and our approach is continuously evolving to the latest standard of knowledge. This approach has historically resulted in outperformance relative to our benchmark.

Global Agribusiness Equity Product

The investment case for global agribusiness rests on food security, discontinuity, scarcity, and the solutions to overcome them. The Global Agribusiness strategy is a unique investment vehicle that provides access to a diverse spectrum of agribusiness companies — from farm production to the end consumer — which spans several distinct asset classifications. We do not seek a high correlation with global soft commodity prices, as we invest along parts of the value chain. In fact, several of our agribusiness sub-themes benefit from lower crop prices. Our main objective is to invest in and equalize global inefficiencies, with a time horizon of at least 3 to 5 years.

As the largest global equity investor across the agribusiness value chain, we have a unique vantage point which also gives us a credible voice with company managements and allows us to objectively evaluate their business decisions. By reviewing global markets and competitors, relevant assets, and internal structures and processes we are able to convey an objective business assessment to the respective managers of our investments. In addition, we are able to promote our ideas, including various types of operational and organizational corporate strategies.
