Thornbridge Nutshell Global Equity UCITS Fund

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE

PORTFOLIO OBJECTIVE

  • Long term global equity investment. Focused buy and hold strategy in a concentrated portfolio of quality, resilient, exceptional companies at reasonable valuations.

  • To achieve returns annually in excess of both peers and the global equity markets, with reduced volatility and drawdown periods.

  • To align selection with ethical values, using Environmental, Social and Governance factors including sector exclusions e.g. Fossil Fuels, Tobacco and Gambling.

INVESTMENT STRATEGY

The strategy utilizes an in-house proprietary ‘bottom up’ investment selection process. This encompasses many fundamental, technical and valuation factors, researched over many years.

These factors have contributed to significant outperformance in normal market conditions, and reduced beta, and therefore losses, when the broader equity markets suffer.

The Nutshell Global Equity Strategy GBP share class returned -5.18% during October. The top 3 contributors for the month were Tencent, Waters Corp and ADP. While the top 3 detractors were Euronext, Deutsche Boerse and Amgen. Our financial exchanges and healthcare positions performed poorly during the month. These faired well in Q4 2019 and over the initial lockdown volatility, however recently they have adversely impacted performance. We look forward to entering the seasonally strongest period of equity returns (Nov-Jan)
