Investec GSF Global Franchise – Neutral

Peter Brunt

The fund is managed by a reasonably experienced investor in Clyde Rossouw, who has been at the helm since August 2011. He follows a structured approach to investing, which aims to identify quality companies that can grow their cashflows sustainably over time. We like the process' clear structure and scalability (focusing only on stocks capitalised above USD 3 billion), but note that its implementation has resulted in a portfolio skewed to a small number of sectors in the past, including a significant overweighting to consumer staples. This proved broadly beneficial to performance as those sectors experienced tailwinds, but also brought concentration risk.
