The Fund

The Fund invests in medium and small sized companies in the UK with the potential for high growth. Fund Manager Mark Martin, who has managed the Fund since December 2008, has a strong focus on minimising volatility and protecting capital during down markets. Mark uses the Global Equity Team's disciplined investment process which is founded on collaborative research, a culture of investing with conviction and three silo portfolio construction to build a concentrated portfolio of 20-40 stocks which is highly differentiated from the market.

The Global Equity Process

The fund managers believe the key to generating long-term outperformance is through high conviction, long-term, research-led company selection. When combined with the team’s portfolio construction, this approach can drive returns that are largely uncorrelated to the successes and failures of popular investment styles such as growth (investing in growing companies) and value (holding relatively cheap companies).

Key Risks 

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Do remember that the value of an investment and the income generated from them can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed, therefore, you may not get back the amount originally invested and potentially risk total loss of capital. Investment in funds managed by the Global Equity (GE) team may involve investment in smaller companies - these stocks may be less liquid and the price swings greater than those in, for example, larger companies. Investment in funds managed by the GE team may involve foreign currencies and may be subject to fluctuations in value due to movements in exchange rates. The team may invest in emerging markets/soft currencies or in financial derivative instruments, both of which may have the effect of increasing volatility. Some of the funds managed by the GE team hold a concentrated portfolio of stocks, meaning that if the price of one of these stocks should move significantly, this may have a notable effect on the value of that portfolio.
