Global Equities case study: Vonovia

In our latest case study direct from our Global Equities portfolios, we examine the favourable ESG attributes of current holding Vonovia, a German real estate company.

Within our Global Equities portfolios, we like stocks with robust financial statements, competitive strength and a proven ability to consistently beat revenue and earnings expectations. Ideally, these companies should also be guided by impressive management teams, mitigate environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and appear cheap relative to peers.

As very few stocks embody such an ideal investment, we identify those with the most attractive combinations of characteristics in every market environment. One such example is Vonovia, a German real estate company which focuses on the provision of affordable housing, which we hold in our Global Equities portfolios.
