Investment philosophy

Phoenix believes that over the long term, superior investment performance can be achieved through investing in well-managed, shareholder-focused companies that are trading at a discount to their underlying intrinsic value.

Long-term valuation models

Detailed valuation models are built for every security in the investment universe. These models capture and analyse historical financial information and are used to make forecasts of future business outcomes.

Risk management

Phoenix actively manages the risks in its portfolios through understanding and quantifying their potential impact under various scenarios, and through portfolio diversification.
