1. International Concentrated Growth Fund

    International Concentrated Growth Fund

  2. Overview

    To produce capital growth over the long term by investing primarily in equities outside of the US. Performance will be measured against the MSCI ACWI ex US Index.

    Investment Proposition

    The Fund invests in exceptional growth companies operating in international markets. We invest with a 10-year investment horizon which we believe differentiates us from the market and allows us to benefit from the power of compound returns. We run a concentrated portfolio to avoid diluting the growth stocks in which we have the highest conviction.
