Mackenzie North American Equity & Income Team
Philosophy and process
The North American Equity & Income Team invests in what they identify as the best value opportunities across North America. The team believes that investing in companies with quality characteristics provides a better opportunity to close the value gap while limiting potential downside risk. The team’s experience lies in the ability to tactically allocate across the market cap spectrum to potentially realize value from the best opportunities in the marketplace. The team applies a disciplined, bottom-up investment approach that focuses on the price they pay for a security, weighed against the relative risks to the portfolio for including that security. The team looks for companies that are diligent capital allocators with potential to generate sustainable cash flows. The team believes in constructing well-diversified portfolios that have balanced exposures to different industries and sectors.
