The fund is run using Standard Life’s "Focus on Change" investment philosophy and largely focuses on stockpicking rather than macro conditions. It feeds off Standard Life’s analysts, who reduce a universe of over 600 stocks to around 100 buy recommendations with the high conviction Winners List of 20 stocks a prominent source of ideas. However, James has a focus on yielding stocks and to this end may invest in some stocks that are not buy rated by the analysts. He splits the portfolio into three types of company: - High Dividend (around 50% of portfolio). Companies that have a good track record of paying a healthy and growing dividend to investors where James feels that this is going to continue. - Dividend Growth (around 35%). Companies delivering rapid dividend growth, where James believes this is sustainable. - Dividend Upgrade (around 15%). Stocks where James believes dividend-paying capacity is mispriced, either because they can surprise with a larger than expected dividend or can avoid an expected dividend cut. Understanding a company’s dividend policy is key, and the team spends a fair amount of its time researching and meeting companies to judge this.
