Overview

Client Commitment

An international equity fund that seeks long-term growth of capital. The Fund employs a multi-sub-portfolio approach where each underlying sub-portfolio management team is able to focus on their highest-conviction ideas.

Why Invest in the Fund

    Multi-Manager Approach

  1. The Fund is managed by six portfolio management teams focused on specific areas of sector or geographical expertise. The Fund primarily invests in equities listed on European, Australasian and Far Eastern (EAFE) exchanges.
  2. Concentrated Regional Exposure

  3. Each underlying manager selects approximately 10 to 15 of their best ideas for the portfolio. By harnessing geographical and specialist expertise, we seek to identify opportunities overlooked by a generalist approach.
  4. Bottom-Up Stock Selection

  5. We believe that stock selection and fundamental research drive returns. The regional asset allocation and currency exposures are actively managed. Changes to the sub-portfolio allocation are made gradually and macro calls are expected to be a smaller component of return relative to stock selection.

In this update, Portfolio Manager Stephen Peak shares his thoughts on the current investment environment, Fund performance, and his outlook.
