The fund aims for long-term capital growth from a focused portfolio of fewer than 50 shares, investing at least 80% of the fund in UK companies on a three to five-year view. The emphasis is on businesses the fund manager believes have a long-term competitive edge, and can reinvest their earnings in highly profitable projects. He expects these companies to generate increasing cashflow, enabling them to grow their businesses and dividends, and the stockmarket to reward their share prices over time.
