Investment Risks and Return Objectives

The objective of the Fund is to generate long term returns by investing in a range of internationally listed securities. The Fund will invest in high quality companies with attractive long term propositions and through portfolio construction the Fund aims to have lower volatility than the global equities market and to out-perform the market during periods of market weakness. It is a diversified, long only portfolio of 25-50 stocks.

The Manager will use forward exchange contracts or options to hedge out most currency risk on the foreign assets.

The Manager will not invest in companies whose primary business is the production of tobacco, alcohol, controversial weapons or gambling.

Investment Strategy

The Fund invests in listed international securities. The Fund can hold up to 20% of the portfolio in cash.

The Manager will use CI’s VoF research framework to assess individual companies and industries and to construct a diversified portfolio that aims to achieve the risk and return objectives. This means that we seek to invest in quality companies with a strong value proposition. The level of exposure to specific companies, industries and markets will be selected by CI’s small, focused, experienced team using our VoF investment process.
