Active management, fundamental research, and a focus on long-term performance
Putnam Investments pursues active money management to meet investor needs and challenges, with a focus on long-term performance. We offer products that seek value beyond mainstream benchmarks, diversify sources of risk to offset volatility, use approaches independent of market direction, and pursue opportunities in untapped markets.
Rigorous research and out-of-the-box thinking
Fundamental research is the cornerstone of our investment approach, backed by a globally integrated team of analysts who are empowered to develop differentiated insights. Our research process is a collaborative effort across the firm that emphasizes out-of-the-box critical thinking, and our risk management is stringent and independent.
Keys to successful investing
We believe investment success results from portfolio managers who are accountable and a compensation structure that is aligned with performance goals over a multi-year horizon.
