Intermede Global Equities Fund
Fund description: The Fund invests in an actively managed portfolio of equities listed (or expected to be listed) on share markets around the world. The Fund is not hedged to the Australian dollar.
Investment approach: Intermede engages in intensive research to identify investment opportunities in mid and large capitalisation companies and across developed and emerging markets. The Fund is a concentrated portfolio of approximately 40 equities.
Intermede's investment philosophy is that companies with good management and strong market positions in attractive industries will outperform if their shares are bought at the right price. Intermede implements its philosophy through a rigorous investment process. Intermede looks for companies that meet some or all of the following criteria:
- a sustainable competitive advantage e.g. a dominant position in their industry
- a superior business model eg their costs grow more slowly than revenue
- an excellent management team eg proven track record and clear strategy for growth, and
- a price lower than Intermede's valuation for the company.
