    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!

  • 1.50%
    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).

  • 1.70%
    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…

Investment process

Over 90% of research is in-house, with an emphasis on "outside the box" thinking to generate ideas rather than relying on Wall Street research. The process includes both top-down and bottom-up analysis, with research focusing on sectors, industries and companies benefiting from economic trends identified. Attributes sought in companies include: market expertise/dominance, strong brands, above average unit growth, strong cash flow, R&D and marketing resource, and excellent management. The portfolio consists of three types of companies: Core Growth – often blue chip companies with the potential for stable earnings growth; Life Cycle Change – typically mature companies undergoing positive changes such as new management; Aggressive Growth – leading edge companies offering the potential for rapid earnings growth. Weightings to each area are adjusted according to the stage of the economic cycle. In constructing the portfolio the managers try to avoid concentration in any sector or theme, looking to find growth uniquely in multiple industries.

Marsico employs a hands on approach to fund management, with the investment team doing the majority of the necessary detailed investment work and stock scenario tests themselves, as opposed to relying on the outside broker community. The process has achieved reasonable success since the team took over the fund – the company also has a longer track record running funds in the US.

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.
