Investment approach


We believe equity markets are inefficient due to behavioural errors made by investors.


We search for high quality, attractively valued companies with improving operating performance that are receiving increasing investor attention.


We believe applying a disciplined, repeatable, bottom-up investment approach leads to long-term alpha generation.

General risks:

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results and performance targets may not be achieved; losses may be made.

Specific Risks

Geographic / Sector: Investments may be primarily concentrated in specific countries, geographical regions and/or industry sectors. This may mean that the resulting value may decrease whilst portfolios more broadly invested might grow. Currency exchange: Changes in the relative values of different currencies may adversely affect the value of investments and any related income. Derivatives: The use of derivatives is not intended to increase the overall level of risk. However, the use of derivatives may still lead to large changes in value and includes the potential for large financial loss. A counterparty to a derivative transaction may fail to meet its obligations which may also lead to a financial loss. Equity investment: The value of equities (e.g. shares) and equity-related investments may vary according to company profits and future prospects as well as more general market factors. In the event of a company default (e.g. insolvency), the owners of their equity rank last in terms of any financial payment from that company. Emerging market (inc. China): These markets carry a higher risk of financial loss than more developed markets as they may have less developed legal, political, economic or other systems.
