Our approach

NS Partners is a research-driven, active manager that combines its
bottom-up fundamental company analysis with top down
economic and liquidity analysis.

Stock selection is based on identifying companies that are expected to generate increasing economic — not accounting — profit (i.e., where returns on invested capital exceed their cost of capital). We closely monitor monetary conditions in the major economies and maintain a strategic bias to those companies, industries, and countries that have superior long-term growth potential.


Our rigorous research and screening process results in team members, each a specialist in a particular country or region, explaining the rationale for investing in the company before the stock is included in the portfolio. Decisions to buy or sell are made within a broader framework that looks at:

  • Buy thesis

  • Industry outlook

  • EVA

  • Addressable market and competitive dynamics

  • Contribution to portfolio risk


NS Partners’ overall objective is to maximize exposure to the best
market opportunities while keeping the portfolio within acceptable
risk tolerance levels and ensuring proper diversification of
investment ideas.
