Global Separately Managed Account (SMA) Strategy


Inception Date Jan 01, 2023

Seeks to deliver sound real returns while avoiding the permanent impairment of capital.

Investment Philosophy

First Eagle Global SMA strategy seeks to deliver sound real returns while avoiding the permanent impairment of capital over time by using a value approach to investing in equity securities issued by US and non-US corporations through USD tradeable securities, including American Depositary Receipts (ADRs).

  • Focus on Long-Term Growth

    We seek to avoid the permanent impairment of capital and potentially generate long-term attractive investment returns across market cycles.

  • Flexible, Benchmark-Agnostic Approach

    The portfolio has the ability to invest across asset classes, regions, sectors/industries, market-capitalization ranges, and without regard to a benchmark.

  • Seeks Downside Mitigation

    The goal to avoid the permanent impairment of capital results in a portfolio of what we believe are resilient businesses purchased with a “margin of safety” in price.
