Our history of evolution and consistent growth.
With a focus on wealth preservation and upon the capacity to generate consistent returns over the long term, AZ Quest’s understanding is that the analysis of the fundamentals is the most adequate form of capturing the best investment opportunities within the different markets. We believe that consistency in performance over the long term is the decisive factor for portfolio results. As we always say:
We are a fund manager with a unique investment process, which starts out with the analysis of the macro-economic outlook of the country. From the definition of the investment outlook scenario, each of our teams begins its investment process, in which the fundamental analysis is the principal element for constructing portfolios. The selection of assets takes into account the intrinsic value and level of governance of each of the candidate companies to be included in our portfolios.
Formed by professionals with great market experience, AZ Quest values its human capital as being an intangible asset and seeks to attract and retain talent through a culture of incentives that encourages and rewards meritocracy and teamwork.
The majority of our professionals are partners, in a policy of incentive alignment between managers, shareholders and investors.
