Investment Process

This fund holds companies with a market cap greater than $3bn, mainly in the US but Canadian stocks may be held at times. A bottom up stock-picking approach is used to identify attractive long-term growth prospects coupled with shares trading on reasonable valuations. Industry and economic factors will be taken into account when analysing companies, but the profile of the fund will be mainly a result of the stock selection and adherence to risk controls. Analysts seek a sustainable return on capital generated through a strong business model or market position, above average growth funded internally and management committed to creating shareholder value. Inclusion in the portfolio is determined by strength of conviction and the effect on portfolio profile. Portfolio turnover is low, with the management prepared to back companies for the long term if fundamentals remain in place.
