Newton has a long and proud history of investing on behalf of charities through the management of both pooled funds available directly to charity investors, and discretionary portfolios. We are active investors. Our investment approach is based upon rigorous analysis, and guided by the broad perspective of our global investment themes. Our themes represent our ideas about long-term forces of change around the world. Importantly, they help us in our aim to distinguish long-term areas of opportunity and risk from short-term market ‘noise’.
