Fund objective
LO Funds - Emerging High Conviction is an actively managed UCITS portfolio. Its long-only, high conviction equity strategy has been in place since October 2011. It invests in equity securities issued by companies in emerging markets and in developed markets which have a material exposure to emerging markets. It seeks to outperform the MSCI Emerging Market index over the long-term. The Investment Philosophy is centred around selecting high quality companies with sustainable business models that can deliver predictable superior economic returns. The Investment Approach tends to avoid companies which are excessively exposed to exogenous factors (not controlled by corporate management) and focus on those that can deliver sustainable superior economic returns with better predictability. This focus is a disciplined systematic and High Conviction strategy whereby the Investment Team selects companies with: structural superior economic returns, ability to grow with limited debt requirement, strong corporate governance and sustainable competitive advantages. The portfolio is then constructed with 50-70 attractively priced stocks. Top down views will influence the allocation to countries and between defensive versus pro-cyclical sectors/companies. Risk management focuses, among others, on limiting drawdowns through the use of option hedging strategies. Local currency risk can be hedged.
