Investment philosophy

The core of any successful investment is a clear investment philosophy. MLC’s investment philosophy defines the kind of investor we are and, most importantly, how we manage your money.

These four beliefs are the foundation of our business:

  • We can manage uncertainty about the future by considering many possible market environments.
  • We are risk managers, not risk avoiders.
  • We are responsible for all aspects of our portfolios.
  • We will never be complacent.

We believe that by applying this philosophy, we can deliver more reliable returns to you.

Our approach to investing - the way we design, construct, implement and manage our portfolios - is built around this philosophy.
