How does the manager select its stock?

The fund initially has a top down asset allocation process to decide on the geographic and sector tilts. It then checks that valuations are not already pricing in the expectations which lead to the fund’s geographic and sector tilts. The focus is on quality and tradability. A liquidity screen is used to eliminate poorly tradeable stocks. Detailed research is undertaken in companies that are likely to benefit from long term trends such as the strength of global trade hubs, the growing problem of data obesity, valuable voids and the evolution and modernisation of retail. The fund performs fundamental analysis for each of the companies selected and look at corporate characteristics such as quality of assets, location, active and strong management with well defined strategy, solid balance sheet, scale advantage and resilient earnings. The fund ends up with a “Buy” list of high conviction stocks and construct a portfolio of around 50 stocks.
