    Price (Acc)

    These are the shares in the fund that don’t pay out an income to clients. Any dividends – the money a company can pay out to its investors – are reinvested into companies in the fund. Despite no income, the shares should be worth more over time. Good incentive, eh?

    Initial charge

    Some funds charge you when you first invest, which is aptly known as the initial charge. They’re usually between 3-5% but at Bestinvest, we usually don’t charge you a penny!

  • 0.75%
    Annual management charge

    This is how much the fund management company charges to run the fund. It’s like paying a babysitter, dog sitter or house sitter (that makes well-informed, heavily researched changes to improve your baby/dog/house when needed).

  • 0.87%
    Ongoing charges

    This stands for Ongoing Charges Figure. It’s the cost of running a fund and includes admin fees, manager fees, administration costs, etc.

    Yield

    How much the fund is currently paying out in income to investors. It’s NOT to be confused with the overall growth of a fund – a very different thing indeed. It’s also NOT a guarantee of future pay-outs, just a snapshot. This is more what it’s not than what it is…

Prices as at 14 January 2021, fund data last updated 02 April 2014

The objective of the fund is to achieve long-term capital growth through investment principally in companies in Europe (ex the UK). The fund invests across the capitalisation spectrum and has no restrictions by either industry or geographical split. The fund manager deploys the self-developed SmartGARP quantitative screen to identify stocks with the highest overall score across a number of factors. The process tends to perform best in directional markets but to underperform at market turning points.

Investment process

The SmartGARP quantitative model (Sentiment, Momentum, Accruals, Revisions, Top Down + Growth at a Reasonable Price) scans a universe of 2000 European Equities. The process gathers more than 100 pieces of stock specific data per company, 36 economic points and 28 separate sector weightings. This data is used to score the stocks in the universe, with the top ranked companies going into the portfolio. The process is normally 90% quantitative with the remainder coming from the manager, however he does have complete control over portfolio construction and an override where he thinks it is appropriate. 80% of performance is likely to come from stock selection, the remainder from sector selection. The investment process is designed to identify growing companies at a good price with a particular emphasis on earnings revisions, which is double weighted in the SmartGARP system.

About the MRI

Our unique indicator: the Bestinvest Manager Record Index (MRI) measures the likelihood that the fund manager is adding value through their decisions. It is based on their performance record over the course of their career, adjusted for the amount of risk taken. MRI is an important contributor to our fund rating system but it is also vital to take account of qualitative factors. It is also very important to select funds to form a cohesive portfolio with an appropriate overall risk level.
