Fund objective
The fund invests in the shares of North American companies that are deemed to be undervalued, with the aim of delivering capital growth over the long term (that is, over five years or more). The fund manager employs a ‘value strategy’ that involves investing in cheap, out-of-favour companies whose share price, in his view, does not reflect the underlying value of the business. Stocks are selected on the basis of their individual merits, through a combination of value-focused screening and qualitative assessment. The fund manager seeks to construct a diversified portfolio of 60-100 stocks and has a typical holding period of three to five years.
