‘Everyone does their research,’ says Cordelia Bowdery, ‘but what I think is interesting here is that, when generating investment ideas, we really cast the net incredibly wide.’ She points to Veritas’s ‘simple but intellectually interesting’ investment process — one that seeks ‘the very best businesses, often exposed to disruptive structural growth trends that can consistently grow, irrespective of the economic environment’. These include trends such as electronic and mobile payments, data storage and analytics, fraud protection and cyber. Bowdery’s career began in 2007 with Mayfair stockbrokers Killik & Co, before she spent seven years at Rothschild. She joined Veritas earlier this year.
