  • Comgest was founded in 1985 and has remained dedicated to a sole activity since its creation – managing long-term “quality growth” equity portfolios, across a variety of geographies. Since the firm’s founding, Comgest has been operating as a broad employee-owned partnership dedicated to one distinct investment style. We believe this structure and investment approach has led to low turnover of our staff, our investments and our clients. We manage concentrated, low-turnover portfolios using a bottom-up approach that is entirely benchmark agnostic and integrates Environmental, Social and Governance factors. Our investment team of 42 professionals are first and foremost a team of stock pickers that use fundamental on-the-ground research to identify outstanding sustainable growth companies. With over £23bn AUM, Comgest manages 15 equity products to service its international, predominantly institutional client base with over 150 staff based in 8 offices including Paris (HQ), Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Boston, Dusseldorf, Amsterdam and Dublin.

In 2004 we established Hermes Equity Ownership Services (Hermes EOS), which is now one of the largest stewardship teams in the industry.
