Lazard serves investors around the world with a broad range of global investment solutions and investment management services. We have built the business over decades with an emphasis on strategies that benefit from intensive research and active management. The result is a strong pattern of long-term performance, global perspective and deep insight into local markets.
On-the-ground, global fundamental research is the foundation of our investment approach. Our investment professionals collaborate on detailed fundamental analysis integrating knowledge across regions, sectors and asset classes to arrive at unique insights.
We empower our investment teams to make independent investment decisions, and we support them with global research capabilities and a strong operations infrastructure. This model allows our teams to focus on what we do best: invest your capital.
Risk management is integral to our portfolio construction. Our independent global risk management team provide objective monitoring of all our portfolios to ensure our investment teams understand the balance of risk and return and our investment strategies deliver their expected pattern of performance.
ESG considerations, including a company’s governance policies and board structure, environmental practices, and labor policies, can affect a security’s valuation and financial performance. Therefore, our investment professionals integrate ESG analysis into their research and decision-making processes.
