Fund Objective

The fund aims to deliver capital growth and income over the long term (five years or more) by investing at least 70% of the portfolio in a range of company shares from across the world. The fund is a concentrated portfolio of between 30 and 40 holdings. Stocks are selected based on their individual merits, with a focus on quality businesses where an element of change is helping to drive their value. Crucially, the fund manager will purchase shares in a company when short-term issues have provided a clear valuation opportunity, with a view to holding those shares over the long term.
