mtx Global Leaders

Focus on profitability and market positioning

Our global-leaders approach is based on a core conviction: The profitability of a company is the most important factor for share-price performance.

That's why Vontobel's mtx strategies invest in leading businesses with high and growing profitability. We find that companies with consistently high return on invested capital and strong competitive positions are more likely to reinvest their free cash flow in superior growth projects. This enables their continued growth and sustains above-average returns in the future. We also carefully ensure that the companies are attractively valued and meet our minimum standards in terms of environmental, social and governance (ESG) objectives.

The companies we invest in must have leading market positions and convincing business models. We make selections based on a range of criteria—for instance, the growth companies achieve through successful investments in areas such as new products, locations or technologies.
