Lachlan Drummond, Portfolio Manager (Small Cap) and Analyst
Lachlan has more than 20 years investment experience and joined Tribeca Investment Partners in September 2007 as Portfolio Manager, working closely with David Aylward on the Small Companies portfolio. He is also responsible for stock research covering large, mid and small cap stocks in various sectors.
Before Tribeca, Lachlan spent over 20 years with Credit Suisse and its predecessors, including four years as Head of Small Cap Research and Deputy Head of Equities Research. Prior to this, Lachlan was a top rated media analyst and earlier had covered a broad range of sectors including insurance, banking, building materials and food and beverage.
Before moving to the broking industry, Lachlan had a successful career as a financial journalist, working on The Australian, The Australian Financial Review and The Sydney Morning Herald, as well as in London with The Financial Times.
We like Tribeca's ability to add value through detailed bottom-up stock research while managing the risk drivers of their portfolio. We also favour their comprehensive and systematic valuation approach for the construction of a strong risk adjusted portfolio. We believe that Tribeca's assessment of macro and micro risks through their Portfolio Characteristics Test further enhances the risk adjusted alpha potential as they minimise unintended and unrewarded risks within our portfolio.
