Global High Quality Fund

Investing in high quality companies for long-term growth


The objective of the Global High Quality Fund is to produce compound total returns in excess of the MCSI World Index over the medium to long-term. We aim to do this primarily through taking high conviction positions in well managed, high quality businesses that are attractively valued.

Investment Approach:


Our investment approach employs quantitative and qualitative analysis that aims to invest in companies with the following criteria:

  • Companies that can distribute excess cash flow to shareholders whilst maintaining high returns on capital should be able to successfully compound returns over the long-term
  • Companies that have strong or dominant market positions and sustainable competitive advantages that are difficult to replicate
  • A concentrated and actively managed portfolio of quality equities should achieve attractive long-term shareholder returns with less absolute volatility
  • Investments are based on the most attractive risk/reward trade off
  • We invest in companies with low levels of balance sheet leverage. 

Investment Process:


Our investment process is based upon a rigid, fundamentally driven and disciplined framework.

1. Generation of Stock ideas
We begin by carrying out a rigorous quantitative screening process of stocks based upon a range of metrics, we have meetings with company management and we interact with external research providers

2. Fundamental Analysis
Our detailed bottom-up company analysis focusses on capital structure, robust and sustainable competitive advantages and a strong and growing free cash flow trend over time. Our analysis helps us gain an in-depth understanding of the company’s value.

3. Portfolio construction
Our actively managed portfolio of stocks is constructed through a disciplined, high conviction methodology that is unconstrained versus a benchmark. We actively rotate away from businesses which are fully valued and invest in more attractively valued stocks once our investment thesis has played out. We believe that the most appealing long-term returns are driven by cash flow growth rather than valuations which keep moving up without underlying profit growth.
