TT International is a specialist asset manager devoted solely to managing high-conviction, concentrated active investment portfolios. With over 30 years’ experience, TT now manages many billions of dollars across long-only equity mandates (notably Global Environmental, Global Emerging Markets, Asia ex Japan, China Focus) and hedge funds for a diverse range of sophisticated investors across the world, including prominent Asian Sovereign Wealth Funds.
Everything TT does aims to produce attractive risk-adjusted returns for investors. A strong alignment of interests is achieved through both portfolio manager and employees of the firm investing their own assets alongside those of clients. To help ensure consistent alpha generation is achievable, the firm imposes capacity constraints across all strategies and success is measured by alpha generation rather than asset gathering.
Watch the Spotlight On: ESG panel discussions – Now available on-demand
Co-PM of TT’s Environmental Solutions Fund, Harry Thomas and TT’s head of ESG, Basak Yeltekin discuss how they think about environmental equities and how TT’s approach is designed to capture the full opportunity set in what we expect will be one of the leading structural growth thematics of a generation.
We believe that environmental investing will be the defining structural growth opportunity for investors in the coming decades, driven by rapid changes in the behaviour of consumers, corporates, governments and investors. This is a pure play global environmental strategy with an extremely high hurdle for portfolio inclusion, that aims to fully capture this opportunity and drive capital towards companies that are providing solutions to the problems of climate change and ecosystem destruction around the world. It features strong top-down/bottom-up linkage, with rigorous company analysis leading to a high-conviction 30-40 stock portfolio that is well diversified across opportunity set, geography and market cap.
