Our values

Performance is born from the combination of talent and method

To invest in a complex world, our managers work as a team and use our methods and analytical tools, which have been developed over many years and are constantly being enhanced. Thus, every day, we seek to anticipate and detect the major trends in the international markets and attractive themes. Our permanent priority is to devote all our expertise and resources to our clients in order to achieve the best performance and offer them the best service.

Our DNA is resolutely "Investor driven".

Our collegial, qualitative and quantitative approach provides our managers with a solid foundation in a rapidly changing financial environment.In the face of the three major current trends – protean globalisation, irresistible digitalisation and increasing regulation – we are uniting our bottom-up and top-down visions in our investment processes.

This differentiating angle is a determining factor in detecting a company’s growth potential, understanding its life cycle, analysing its valuation and thus selecting the most promising investment vehicles.We integrate environmental, social and governance criteria that are essential to better take into account long-term perspectives and invest in the 21st century, characterized by the greater involvement of civil society. This is how we created the Montpensier Foundation.
We are passionate about the search for mid-cap growth stocks, which is a fertile breeding ground for management.
