The Case for Global Shares
Our people and our process set us apart from other global fund managers. We apply our experience, insight, and skill to identify global companies with the greatest long-term potential. The Fund's investment process is described in our investment brochure.
How are we making money?
As an active, value manager, with a bottom-up investment process, our approach is to make active investment decisions based on the intensive analysis of an investment’s quality, value and risk. We do not attempt to predict where markets are heading – we simply aim to choose the best quality investments at prices that represent good value, based on their potential risks and returns.
So what does that mean? We are looking for high quality companies that have strong balance sheets, exceptional management teams and try to buy them at an opportune time when the market is mispricing the business for some reason.
