Fund Objective

The fund invests at least 80% of the portfolio in companies that are out of favour with the stockmarket where the fund manager believes a good management team is making concerted efforts to turn the business around. The fund’s sole aim is to achieve capital growth. The fund manager takes a long-term view with a typical holding period of five years or more. Developing a constructive dialogue with company management is a fundamental part of the investment process.
