Causeway Capital's Sarah Ketterer Discusses Portfolio Management with Steve Forbes
- Causeway's investment approach is contrarian, choosing to head to the sectors where nobody else wants to be. A recent example is in 2010. As investors fled the European stock markets, Causeway started focusing on Europe, looking for high quality companies at distressed valuations.
- From a stock list of 3,000 stocks, Causeway uses quantitative screening to select those companies that deserve further analysis.
- Causeway has an average holding period of three years for the stocks in its portfolio.
- Causeway has an international focus because there is a greater chance to discover overlooked opportunities, especially with smaller cap companies.
