Fidelity Special Values Trust

This value contrarian trust is focused on the UK but invests up to 20% in overseas markets. Portfolio manager Alex Wright seeks out stocks that he believes are undervalued by the market and whose growth potential has yet to be appreciated by other investors.

Fundsmith Emerging Equities Trust

The Fundsmith Emerging Equities Trust listed in 2014 to replicate the strategy of the Fundsmith Equity Fund in emerging and frontier markets. The trust seeks to invest in attractive businesses that generate high returns with the ability to reinvest those cash flows to compound growth. The companies in which we invest in tend to have relatively predictable revenues, low capital intensity, and correspondingly high returns on capital. Typically they have defensible and strong market positions within fast growing end markets. We aim to buy these companies at a reasonable valuation. Once we have invested in a high quality company, we seek to own it for the very long term.

The Company aims to outperform the FTSE World Total Return Index on a total return basis (a combination of income and capital growth) in Sterling terms.

Lowland Investment Company
