Local Touch

We are fundamental, bottom-up investors; our investment decisions focus on the merits of individual securities.  We believe the best investment decisions are thoughtfully distilled from a pool of expertise, and we are pleased to offer our clients a team with the experience and the network to assess the relevant geopolitical issues, demographic trends and cultural considerations impacting our investments.  As a component of our due diligence process, investment team members regularly perform company visits across the Americas, the Asia Pacific region, Western and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and the Sub-continent.  Collectively, EARNEST Partners' stakeholders have lived and worked in dozens of countries, and are fluent in the language, commerce and culture of diverse economies that represent a significant portion of the world's economic value and future growth. We believe that identifying the most attractive investment opportunities takes the proper focus: a global focus.

EARNEST Partners is a firm built on entrepreneurialism, teamwork and a commitment to excellence.  We are independent, employee-owned and wholly focused on generating investment results for, and providing superior service to, our clients.
