Nasdaq Global Momentum
Nasdaq Global Momentum consists of 30 to 40 non-US stocks in developing and emerging markets. The stock-picking process is based on the relative strength methodology, where stocks outperforming the determined markets are identified. This is also known as momentum investing. Given the market flexibility of the investment strategy, picking securities wherever opportunities are the best lays the foundation for strong portfolio performance.
Nasdaq Global Momentum generated a net return of 8.8% in Q2, which is 5.6 percentage points above the portfolio's benchmark MSCI All Country World ex US Index.
Portfolio performance since inception in 2006:
Brown Advisory Ethical Selection is a portfolio of 30 to 40 US stocks carefully chosen for their strong investment potential and ethical merits. The core of the stock-picking strategy is based on deep fundamental analysis, with integrated ESG analysis. More specifically, the universe of fundamentally identified companies is screened to ensure that companies which don’t pass the strategy's environmental, social and governance thresholds are excluded. For instance, companies with more than 5% of their revenue derived from alcohol or tobacco products will not be included.
Brown Advisory Ethical Selection was up by 5.6% in the second quarter. The result compared favorably to the benchmark Russel 3000’s return of 4.1%, as well as to the S&P 500's return of 4.3% in the same period.
