Invest in the future with our Global Focus Strategy

Randall Dishmon, Senior Portfolio Manager, Global Equities

Everyone that has met me over the past 20 years I’ve been in the financial industry knows what I think of labels when it comes to investing. Labels are your enemy, and I strongly recommend you forget as many of them as possible.

Growth, value, core, small, large, balanced… we’re in the business of making money with money. You do that by buying great companies trading at prices less than they are worth. That’s it. Call it anything you want as long as you get the job done.

Investment risks

  • The value of investments and any income will fluctuate (this may partly be the result of exchange rate fluctuations) and investors may not get back the full amount invested.

    As the fund has a concentrated number of holdings, investors should be prepared to accept higher risks.

    The Fund may use Stock Connect to access China A Shares traded in mainland China. This may result in additional liquidity risk and operational risks including settlement and default risks, regulatory risk and system failure risk.

    Although the Fund invests mainly in established markets, it can invest in emerging and developing markets, where there is potential for a decrease in market liquidity, which may mean that it is not easy to buy or sell securities. There may also be difficulties in dealing and settlement, and custody problems could arise.

    The fund may use derivatives (complex instruments) in an attempt to reduce the overall risk of its investments, reduce the costs of investing and/or generate additional capital or income, although this may not be achieved. The use of such complex instruments may result in greater fluctuations of the value of the fund. The Manager, however, will ensure that the use of derivatives within the fund does not materially alter the overall risk profile of the fund.
