Find out about the investment philosophy that guides how we manage your money, our investment process and the managers we use in our portfolios.

Our managers.

MLC’s internal managers run several of our investment strategies. We also research hundreds of investment managers from around the world to select some of the best ones for our funds, including sought-after firms that aren’t available to individual investors or are closed to new institutional investors.

When selecting external managers, in addition to undertaking our own extensive research, we also have access to a team of specialists at JANA, a leading investment consultant.

The following summary provides information about the managers in our portfolios, why we’ve chosen them and their role.

We may use a different combination of these investment managers in each fund, and may change the managers at any time.  You can find up-to-date information about investment managers for each fund on the MLC MasterKey Fund Profile Tool.
