The Fund's objective is to achieve long term capital appreciation by primarily investing in a diversified portfolio of equity securities listed in the UK.
The Fund Managers believe that outstanding investment results can be generated through company specific, proprietary research and modelling rather than predicting what is in store for the economy or market as a whole. The investment process is entirely bottom up through the application of a replicable process to each company in the investment universe. The stock holdings often differ significantly from the Fund’s benchmark, the FTSE All Share Index. The Fund Managers apply a value philosophy, looking to uncover stocks trading at a temporary discount to their intrinsic value. The Fund Managers do not believe that company size matters and adopts a multi-cap investment approach, taking advantage of the best investment opportunities in the UK large, mid and small cap space.
- Managed by experienced fund managers with a strong track record
- Bottom up, stock by stock selection
- Focus on undervalued companies
- Flexibility to go across the market cap spectrum
