Fund strategy

The sub-fund aims to increase the value of your investment over the long term.

Under normal market conditions, the sub-fund invests mainly in shares, or other securities representative of shares, from issuers anywhere in the world including in emerging markets, China and Russia, and in any currency. The sub-fund also invests in other types of financial instruments, consistent with its objective. The sub-fund may use derivatives for investment purposes or to reduce investment risks (hedging).

The fund manager follows a disciplined investment approach based on the analysis of human behaviour during the different phases of the wealth cycle. On that basis, the fund manager aims to select about 35 to 60 companies that exhibit high earnings growth and a strong and stable competitive business. Though the portfolio will be diversified in terms of regions and economic sectors, it is not constructed by reference to any market index. The fund manager will generally favour regions and countries that show an above average potential growth rate. The manager's objective is to hedge positions in currencies other than the Euro which represent more than 2.5% of the net asset value of the share class.

The MSCI All Country World index provides a reference of the investment universe of the fund manager. It is provided for information purpose only as indeed the sub-fund is managed on a discretionary basis and its portfolio will show a significant departure from the index.

The sub-fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within 6 years.

The share classes do not distribute dividends (meaning that any income earned by the sub-fund is added to the share price).

You can place orders to buy or sell shares of the sub-fund daily.

These objectives as well as the investment policy are an exact copy of those indicated in the corresponding KIID.

Fund Manager

Andrew Dalrymple

The manager believes that there is a natural human urge to seek a better life and that this results in predictable and repeatable behaviour across economies and markets at different stages of wealth creation. He has developed, therefore, a Wealth Cycle approach and analysis to identify and access the growth tailwinds which come from this trend, and this directs the stock search to particular sectors and regions. 
 
Stocks which emerge from this thematic and macro analysis are then subject to forensic financial research and they are required to satisfy the following minimum financial criteria:
- EPS growing at least 15% per annum;
- A minimum return on equity of 15%;
- Strong balance sheet and visibility of cash flow through the business cycle;
- A Price Earnings to Growth Ratio of less than 1.5x; 
- Market capitalisation in excess of $750 million.
 
Stock opportunities result not only from screening but also from the intellectual experience and “capital” within the manager and his team’s long involvement in global growth stock investing, and, critically and most importantly, from direct meetings with companies. The manager is based in Edinburgh, a leading European financial centre, which has excellent through flow of international companies and which also offers excellent and intimate access to their management; these meetings are substantially supplemented by investment visits overseas and the research travel budget of the manager is one of the highest expenditure items of its profit and loss account. The manager typically meets 300 companies annually across sectors and regions. 

The manager selects the portfolio’s investments on basis of his convictions. He favours stocks from companies that offer, in his opinion, strong earnings growth prospects and sustainable competitive advantages.

The portfolio is diversified in terms of regions and economic sectors. The fund manager follows a disciplined investment approach based on the analysis of human behaviour during the different phases of the wealth cycle. On that basis, the fund manager aims to select about 35 to 60 companies that exhibit high earnings growth and a strong and stable competitive business.

Main risk factors defining the risk level

The sub-fund does not offer either protection or any capital guarantee or a guaranteed yield. The risk/reward rating of the sub-fund reflects the following factors: 1) it invests mainly in shares and 2) it may favor particular economic sectors or regions, including emerging markets.

Other risks to be considered

Moreover, it is also exposed to the following risks: counterparty (the sub-fund could lose money if any entity with which it does business becomes unwilling or unable to honor its obligations to the sub-fund), legal and tax risks (the sub-fund could be affected by foreign legal and tax changes, some of which may be retroactive).
