Investment Restrictions

The fund is subject to the investment restrictions applicable to UCITS funds in Luxembourg, as set out on page 31 of its prospectus.

Investment Approach

The Investment Adviser adopts a stock picking approach in the belief that a thorough analysis and understanding of a company is the best way to identify long-term superior growth prospects. This understanding begins with identifying those companies where the ownership structure and incumbent management are conducive to the realisation of the aim of achieving superior long-term earnings growth.

The Investment Adviser will seek to identify companies which enjoy certain key business characteristics including some or all of the following:

  • a strong management record and team, and the confidence that the Investment Adviser has in that management’s ability to explain and account for its actions;
  • proprietary technology and other factors which indicate a sustainable competitive advantage;
  • a reasonable expectation that demand for their products or services will enjoy long-term growth; and
  • an understanding that structural changes are likely to benefit rather than negatively impact that company’s prospects.

In analysing potential investments, the Investment Adviser will employ differing valuation techniques depending on their relevance to the business characteristics of a particular company. However, the underlying feature will be the sustainability and growth of free cashflow in the long-term.

Portfolio risk

Portfolio risk is mitigated by investment in a diversified spread of investments. The Investment Adviser is not constrained by benchmark weightings, sector, geographical location within Europe or market capitalisation or size of investee companies.
