The unique culture at MFS is rooted in teamwork, diversity and mutual respect, and facilitates the best possible investing decisions on behalf of our clients.
We are a different kind of global investment manager.
It’s not about stars; it’s about synergy. Our investment professionals are compensated on longer-term investment performance measures that align with our clients' goals, and every member of our team receives a 360° peer review.
Our Investing Approach
Our business strategy is our investment strategy.
From our global teams to our performance evaluation and compensation structure, our process mirrors and supports our collaborative, long-term approach to investing.
We have a unique perspective. Or a thousand.
What happens when you get analysts, portfolio managers and risk professionals communicating? Collaboration. Because broader views and better insights often come from sharing – and vigorously debating – diverse opinions.
We don’t mitigate risk; we actively manage it.
Risk management is an integral part of investing, not a last line of defense. We work to ensure the biggest differentiator of each portfolio's returns will be security selection, which we believe is our greatest strength.
We stay the course.
We don’t chase short-term trends. Here, we’ve got the discipline and rigor to stay focused on our long-term strategy, and yours.
We’re All Investors
Our business is managed by expert investors who are passionate about our culture and focused on putting our clients’ needs first.
