Investment Style

Investment style refers to the approach of a portfolio manager in the way they research, select, and manage their securities portfolio. In terms of equity investment, the two main schools of thought are Growth investing, and Value investing. There is a wide range of investment strategies and styles, and each will carry a different set of risk-reward characteristics, and some may even perform differently at different stages of market cycles. There may be some benefit from holding funds in two different styles, e.g. if their performance has historically had a low correlation between them.

Synonyms: Style, Investment strategy, Investment focus, Investment thesis
