Fund objective
The Unicorn Outstanding British Companies Fund aims to achieve the highest predictable annual compounding rate of return over the long-term, where long-term is defined as being not less than five years, by investing in a collection of outstanding British companies, either fully listed or quoted on the Alternative Investment Market, with the least amount of economic, as distinct, from market price risk. Outstanding companies are those whose economics and risks are well understood, whose revenues,earnings and cash flows are predictable to a high degree of certainty, which sell products and services into growing markets, which have market leadership positions and lasting competitive strength, which generate high average and incremental returns on invested capital, which convert a high proportion of their earnings into free, distributable cash, which can show a consistent track record of operating performance, which are run by decent, experienced individuals, who manage their businesses with the goal of maximising owner-value, which operate with low core debt, which are not predominantly acquisition-led, which produce clean, intelligible financial statements. Up to 25% of the fund will be invested in smaller faster growing companies with the remainder in more established businesses.
