Fund data last updated 31 October 2019

This international equity fund distinguishes itself from its peers with an unconstrained, very focused (30 stocks) portfolio. As a result, performance is likely to differ substantially from that of the benchmark and may also be volatile. The fund is interesting but the managers' track record on an existing offshore fund has been mixed so we are not rating this at present.

Investment process

The fund has a high performance mandate, targeting outperformance of 7% p.a. over the MSCI World index over an economic cycle from a concentrated, unconstrained portfolio. The fund is run by a dedicated global team which includes the portfolio managers and global sector analysts, all of whom feed off the research of Schroders' regional teams. The managers take a long term approach to investment, looking for quality growth stocks with sustainable competitive advantage and buying them at attractive valuations. Though primarily a stockpicking fund, three long-term themes provide a backdrop to decision making; currently these are climate change, demographic change and the supercycle (emerging markets growth).

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.
