The Investment Philosophy is as follows:
The investment talent and expertise of the Fund Managers and their team is applied to a bottom-up stock picking approach, which is active in nature and conviction-based in its stock selection.
The Fund’s investment philosophy is based on two core convictions, which underpin the two-stage investment process of the Fund:
- There is a high concentration of Leaders among European small & mid-cap Companies. Leadership is a source of competitive advantage for a Company, which underpins its ability to grow earnings in a profitable and sustainable way overtime, and can command a valuation premium overtime.
- In the medium to long term, the share price performance of a Company is driven by its ability to grow earnings in a profitable and sustainable way, with quality growth profiles generally commanding an increase in their valuation multiple overtime.
The Fund Managers first apply a qualitative and proprietary filter to the vast investment universe of European small and mid-cap Companies, which consists in selecting Leaders. As such, they focus on three Leadership criteria that have emerged through their experience and constitute a differentiated first step approach to stock-picking.
