Our Philosophy

Lord Abbett's guiding principle is "investment-led, investor-focused." The firm is committed to intensive research and a multi-dimensional approach to risk management in seeking superior long-term investment performance.

  • Focuses on companies with revenue growth of at least 15% that are experiencing year-to-year operating margin improvement and demonstrating earnings growth driven by top-line growth rather than one-time events or simple cost-cutting measures
  • Team spends extensive time understanding the competitive advantage of the firm, the industry dynamics within which they operate and the strength of management
