WHY MARMONT REDWOOD INTERNATIONAL EQUITY FUND

TEAM

Redwood Investments International Equities team is comprised of our three portfolio managers who have over 45 years of combined investment expertise. The group is aligned behind the philosophy and process, and makes decisions as a team.

APPROACH

Redwood Investments has a universal investment philosophy across all products: they believe that stocks are largely priced as a multiple of consensus earnings estimates, and that these estimates are typically flawed due to human nature and market structure. Further, these inefficiencies can be exploited by diligent investors to clients’ advantage. The inefficiencies may be more pronounced in non-US markets.

RISK AVERSE

At its core, Redwood is a qualitative investment firm focused on fundamental analysis. Critical to the approach, however, is a proprietary quantitative model that serves as a first step in their investment process. The model narrows the broad universe of companies and allows the analysts to prioritize their qualitative research. The model is also used to provide objective feedback on individual stocks, and to continuously manage risk and exposures in the overall portfolio.
