Investment Objective and Risks

The aim is to earn a return which, in the long term exceeds the return of the benchmark index.

As the fund's assets are invested in equities or equity-linked securities, the fund unit value can fluctuate significantly within a short period. The fund's investments carry an exchange rate risk.

Monthly review

31.01.2021

The Fund’s return was 0.3% in January, while the return of the benchmark index was 0.3%. The Fund’s return since 30.9.2011 (when present management took over) was 7.8% p.a., while the benchmark return was 9.4% p.a.

By sector, the net effect of stock selection on the return differential was slightly positive. The most beneficial selection effects came from consumer discretionary and health care, and the most harmful ones from information technology and industrials. Effects of the individual sector weights on the relative return were small and, as a whole, marginally negative. By stock, the most positive attribution effects came from our investment in PAL Group, from Toyota Motor not being in the portfolio, and from our investment in BML. The bottom attributors were MCJ, Fukui Computer, and Toho.

We invest in underpriced companies that generate cash flow and have strong debt coverage. There are no benchmark, sector, geographical or market cap constraints within the investment universe.
