Investment Process

The fund targets exposure to companies with potential for above average returns. The team has an emphasis on corporate cash flow generation. Companies held will also benefit from at least some of the following criteria: strong industry background, competitive advantage, financial strength and an able management team. Companies are evaluated on standard ratios such as Price/Earnings and Price/Book, where the team do proprietary forecasting of earnings or sum of the parts valuation where applicable. Stock weightings within the portfolio are a factor of conviction and liquidity. Each member of the team maintains a followed list of stocks which in tandem with company meetings in the region lead to idea generation. Returns can be expected to be driven by stock selection. Country and sector allocation are considered secondary as contributors to returns.
