Why invest in the fund?

  • Highly concentrated portfolio

  • Nimble and dynamic with high liquidity

  • Guaranteed access to fund manager

  • Disciplined high quality strategy in which we seek to own the best businesses in the UK

  • Low turnover encourages better relationship and knowledge with companies we own.

A concentrated portfolio of high quality businesses, bought at attractive valuations and held for the longer term to benefit from their strong underlying economic characteristics, will deliver superior risk-adjusted returns.

This philosophy confers a number of advantages:

  • Owning high quality businesses means investors gain access to resilient business models with competitive advantages

  • High quality businesses generate better outcomes, more free cash flow, and generally grow their intrinsic value over time

  • In the longer term, share prices follow fundamentals. We seek to own stocks long enough to benefit from strong fundamentals

  • The buy-and-hold approach allows us to be highly selective and patient in finding truly exceptional new investment ideas, while also minimising transaction costs

 Environmental, Social and Governance

  • ESG is fully incorporated into the investment process
  • Our partnership with Sustainalytics, a global ESG and corporate governance information provider, helps to formalise our ESG analysis and reports are considered as part of the research process
  • As long-term holders of the companies in the fund, we implicitly expect management teams to run their businesses in a responsible manner
  • The fund is not run dogmatically on  ESG principles but tend to have a good ESG outcome since these principles are integrated into our investment work as a very valuable risk management and appraisal tool
  • Rather than take a purely box-ticking approach, we are interested in the potential impacts our companies can make.

Our investment strategy of buying and holding a concentrated portfolio of high quality businesses allows us to focus on what really drives performance in the long run – business performance.

Technical Wizardry: the rise of the smart home

Forecast to reach nearly $82 billion by 2023, the home automation market is on the cusp of big things. Lockdown has forced us all to spend more time at home and to reflect on how our personal space can better support the way we live, work and play. Perhaps it won’t be long before the ‘smart home’ is as common as the smartphone, and we will wonder how we managed without it.

Fund Risks

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Do remember that the value of an investment and the income generated from them can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed, therefore, you may not get back the amount originally invested and potentially risk total loss of capital. A table with five years’ performance is available in the fund factsheets.

The Fund invests geographically in a narrow range, there is an increased risk of volatility which may result in frequent rises and falls in the Fund's share price.
