PIC Global Opportunities Portfolio

Benchmark: MSCI ACWI

Investment Objective
This strategy seeks to achieve competitive returns with low volatility by evaluating and selecting what we deem are the best high quality growth opportunities throughout the world in developed and developing economies and across market capitalizations. 


Stock Selection
For investment, we consider companies that generate higher returns on capital and have better growth prospects than their global peers. Companies must have demonstrated a consistent history of additive shareholder value by producing returns above and beyond the cost of capital. Furthermore, companies must exhibit a high degree of business ethics and responsible conduct in order to qualify for inclusion.
