About this trust

  • Investment objective

    • To provide superior capital growth and outperform the MSCI All Country World Index over the long-term by investing in companies based around the world. The manager is focused on building a high conviction portfolio of typically 50 - 90 stocks, drawing on an investment process underpinned by fundamental research. Portfolio construction is driven by bottom-up stock selection rather than geographical or sector allocation. Currency exposure is predominantly hedged back towards the benchmark. The Company uses borrowing to gear the portfolio within a range of 5% cash to 20 geared under normal market conditions. The Company will repurchase its shares with the aim of maintaining an average discount of around 5% calculated with debt at par value.
