OppenheimerFunds believes in the value of investing with proven teams. Many of the firm’s established and well-known portfolio managers started at the firm as analysts. They are fully immersed in the philosophy and culture of the firm, and they develop and mentor their analysts to prepare them for the day when they might become managers of portfolios.

The analysts work as generalists so the expertise they build isn’t limited to particular industries. Instead they develop a broad perspective on how to evaluate opportunities across geographies, sectors and market capitalizations.

This approach of developing talents fosters consistency in the teams that are making decisions on investors’ behalf. The portfolio managers on the Global Equity team have been with OppenheimerFunds for an average of 16 years, and the managers on the Emerging Markets Equities team have been with the firm an average of 12 years.
