Fund objective
The Fund's objective is to achieve absolute returns over the long-run. We think the best way to achieve this for a long-only Fund is to buy companies with good business models cheaply. The Investment Universe in which we choose to invest is illiquid. Our long term investment approach suits this environment. The Fund's portfolio turnover is low as a consequence.
