Free cash flow yield is a preferred valuation metric.This high a conviction portfolio and will typically contain around 30-50 companies. Yield is constructed at the portfolio level, with no yield threshold at the individual stock level. The find does not have an explicit yield target in excess of the benchmark index, although aims to yield higher than the MSCI World index.

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.
