OUR EXPERTISE A world of equity solutions
At Candriam we offer our clients solutions that can exploit value from a diverse range of equity opportunities.
Few asset classes provide the return potential of equities. For this reason, equities are an indispensable component of investors’ portfolios.

Candriam’s strategies are supported by solid in-house analysis which has generated consistent long-term investment returns. Our investment professionals have worked together for over a decade; developing and fertilizing ideas, resulting in innovative strategies many of which are among the top performers in their categories.
Candriam’s strategies are predicated on in-house research and a high-conviction approach – in our fundamental stock selection or the factors underpinning our quantitative models.

For two decades, our Thematic Equity Team has developed strategies that capitalize on these paradigm changes. We apply in-depth scientific and industry knowledge to our long experience in managing across the investment cycles to which these industries are subject.
