A diverse global platform with investment professionals in more than 17 countries. We customize solutions to address the individual needs of each client -- wherever they may be located.
A platform dedicated to pursuing investment opportunities in responsible investing that integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into the investment process.
A rigorous investment process along with accountability are embedded throughout the investment process with a broad range of sophisticated risk tools to identify, analyze and manage risk.
Our investment professionals are located on the ground globally, allowing us to uncover the most compelling opportunities across markets. Each independent investment team has unique expertise, while sharing a deep commitment to research-driven investing. From defined risk budgets or portfolio constraints, to desired income, tax efficiency criteria and sustainable investment mandates, DWS is positioned to design and execute custom strategies and solutions.
DWS is proud to be managing assets for some of the world’s leading institutions. We have gained clients’ trust because we understand their needs and meet them with highly customized solutions. We have been managing institutional portfolios for decades, and we bring our accumulated experience to bear on each relationship.
Our core/systematic strategies are based on conceptually sound and empirically validated rules- and model-based investment strategies. Starting with a library of proven alpha factors, we set risk budgets and use quantitative portfolio construction tools to deliver alpha without persistent risk factor tilts (e.g. persistent beta, size or style) vs. the benchmark.
Our CROCI strategies select stocks of companies that are believed to offer attractive “economic value.” Economic value is calculated based on the proprietary CROCI Economic Price Earnings Ratio (CROCI Economic P/E Ratio). For more than 20 years, our CROCI team has provided rigorous valuation metrics across regions, sectors and individual securities.
Our discretionary strategies operate within a disciplined analytical framework that has many qualitative and quantitative considerations. Portfolio manager experience and judgment helps to evaluate risks amid dynamic situations and form conviction. Industry and company expertise is pivotal in growth stock investing. Our team seeks great companies with strong economic profit growth potential, assessing intangible assets and often forecasting well into the future.
Our emerging markets team is headquartered out of Asia which comprises 70% of EM. Using a unique top-down country selection approach, balanced with bottom-up stock selection, we aim to build a portfolio that delivers consistent, strong risk-adjusted returns. We also offer clients international equity solutions, drawing upon our deep investment expertise based out of Frankfurt.
