With strong conviction, we build up a global portfolio which is focused on companies - without reference to a particular index - which demonstrate strong profit growth and a stable and solid competitive position. Andrew Dalrymple

His management style

He uses a distinctive Wealth Cycle approach to access growth tailwinds through the identification of predictable and repeatable human behaviour as wealth evolves. This focuses investment research on particular sectors and regions, and then forensic financial analysis is applied to select stocks in those areas, which must satisfy minimum criteria in relation to earnings growth, profitability, balance sheet strength and cashflow visibility and sufficiency, and value. The approach is All Cap. but particular value is added through stock picking in the $1-10 billion market capitalisation range, that is, companies which have stopped being small and fragile and yet still have huge potential for growth. The portfolio typically consists of up to 50 stocks, with a minimum weight of 1.5% and a maximum of 5%.
