Please note that this is the indicative benchmark of the Fund. It is not a formal benchmark but is shown for comparison purposes.
We maintain a blend of value and growth stocks, opportunistically purchasing emerging growth stocks when our research leads us to believe a company’s true growth potential is not fully appreciated by others in the marketplace and purchasing value and core stocks with a near-term catalyst to improve fundamentals, company earnings, or valuation. This approach enables us to selectively take advantage of valuation anomalies created by extreme swings in investor sentiment while delivering a more consistent pattern of performance to our clients.
1. Attractive business model
2. Sound or improving financial characteristics
3. Potential for catalyst
4. Reasonable valuation
5. Quality, shareholder-oriented management teams
We are patient investors whose discussions with company managements emphasise long-term business strategy as opposed to near-term operating results.
Portfolio turnover is therefore relatively low, which allows for the compounding of earnings growth and lower portfolio trading costs.
- 150-250 holdings
