English term or phrase: investment in liquid, high conviction ideas
Could you please explain me the above sentence with other words? Does "liquid" determine "ideas"? Thank you!

The European Equity Team seek(s) undervalued growth through investment in liquid, high conviction ideas that are also beneficiaries of one or more of our global themes.

investment in liquid securities where there is a high degree of confidence
Explanation:
Let me decode the "trader-speak" used here. For "ideas", read "potential equity positions" - they're called "ideas" in order to distinguish them from existing positions in the portfolio.

"Liquid" refers to the quality of the market such securities are traded in - the more liquid, the easier (and cheaper) to trade into and out of positions. As an example, it's easier to trade SAP or Microsoft than some second-line, small-cap technology issue.

Finally, active position-takers always try to determine the quality of indicators, signals or other parameters (such as their gut feeling... *g*) they use as a basis for their decisions - "high conviction" refers to an =>idea they're pretty certain of.

HTH - best regards, Ralf
