Fund Description

Fund managers Christopher Lees and Nudgem Richyal believe stock markets are inefficient and aim to exploit market anomalies via an investment process that combines both top-down and bottom-up research. Their distinct “4-Dimensional” investment process (stocks, sectors, countries, time/change) focuses on the behaviour of each share price to determine whether the most important driver of each prospective investment is stock specific, sector or country-based. The Fund invests in both developed and emerging markets, with the fund managers frequently drawing upon the stocks ideas generated by our regional equity teams. 

 

Investment Strategy
  • Christopher and Nudgem have a growth at a reasonable price (GARP) investment philosophy, which is sometimes described as core with a growth bias. They aim for consistency of returns, by exploiting multiple market anomalies/inefficiencies.
  • Growth and value disciplines are combined to help avoid the volatility that can occur in a single-style strategy, therefore to obtain better risk-adjusted returns over the medium and long term
  • Mean reversion and trend are proven predictors of risk and return
  • They look for stocks, sectors and countries that have displayed long term underperformance (3 to 5 years) followed by short term outperformance (6 to 12 months).
  • They believe that markets are not efficient and correlations/betas change over time. They have a four-dimensional investment process (stocks, sectors, countries, time/change), with factors weighted to what actually drives each share price.
Reasons To Invest
  • More and more investors realise that “uncorrelated alpha” is more effective to obtain by combining different managers, rather than different asset classes
  • As a high alpha, benchmark-unconstrained fund, this is a good satellite to a core of index funds
  • Clients with a home country bias will probably find that the Fund improves their risk/reward metrics
  • Christopher and Nudgem’s GARP style, all capitalisation portfolio, active sector and country allocations, are useful to clients without the resources to dedicate to growth/value, large cap/small cap, sector/geography decisions

This may be partly the result of exchange rate fluctuations in investments which have an exposure to foreign currencies. You should be aware that past performance is no guarantee of future performance.

Investors should note that this strategy may invest in emerging markets and such investments may carry risks with failed or delayed settlement and with registration and custody of securities. Companies in emerging markets may not be subject to accounting, auditing and financial reporting standards or be subject to the same level of government supervision and regulation as in more developed markets. Government involvement in the economy may affect the value of investments in certain emerging markets and the risk of political instability may be high. The reliability of trading and settlement systems in some emerging markets may not be equal to that available in more developed markets which may result in problems in realising investments. Lack of liquidity and efficiency in certain of the stock markets or foreign exchange markets in certain emerging markets may mean that from time to time the Investment Manager may experience difficulty in purchasing or selling holdings of securities. Furthermore, due to local postal and banking systems, no guarantee can be given that all entitlements attaching to quoted and over-the counter traded securities acquired by this strategy, including those related to dividends, can be realised.

The Funds investment include shares in small-cap companies and these tend to be traded less frequently and in lower volumes than larger companies making them potentially less liquid and more volatile.

Investment Objective

The JOHCM Global Select Fund aims to achieve its objective by investing in a portfolio of global equity securities listed on any Recognised Market. Under normal market environments it is the intention to be near-fully invested, and at no time will less than 80% of the Fund’s total net assets be invested in such securities. The benchmark of the Fund is the MSCI ACWI Index but the Fund will be managed on an ‘unconstrained basis’ with no restrictions in terms of regional or sector allocation versus this benchmark.

Strategy Highlights

As at 31 May 2022

The fund outperformed its benchmark index in May as markets nervously rallied off their lows towards the end of the month, but still remain worried by rising inflation and interest rates, the continuing Ukraine conflict, Chinese COVID lockdowns and slowing global growth. During the month, positive stock selection in the technology, healthcare and consumer discretionary sectors was slightly offset by negative stock selection in the financial sector.

Year to date we have underperformed for 3 main reasons: 1) We did not position the portfolio defensively, so the beta of the portfolio was too high; 2) the ongoing growth to value factor rotation, which is a significant headwind for us as we have a growth bias; 3) underweight energy and overweight technology, particularly semiconductors. Most of our semiconductor holdings have reported excellent earnings and future guidance but their share prices have fallen hard with the global semiconductor index declining 25% year to date as markets worry about a recession. They have therefore become what we call “good houses in a bad neighbourhood,” and the same thing can be said for our Japanese holdings as the yen has fallen dramatically year to date, reversing its usual characteristic of rising during an equity market fall. 

During May we increased our healthcare sector exposure, and we are looking to buy any further dips in quality compounders with rock solid balance sheets that can withstand inflation, broken supply chains and slowing growth.

Outlook and Positioning; mid-cycle correction or bear market?

Signs that the Chinese COVID lockdown may be coming to an end were probably the catalyst for markets to nervously rally off their lows, but they still remain worried by rising inflation and interest rates, the continuing Ukraine conflict, and the possibility of rolling Chinese COVID lockdown if they retain their COVID zero policy. Our evidence-based, probability-adjusted investment process got slightly more defensive earlier in the year, but in hindsight it never got anywhere near defensive enough. We went from 70% bullish (30% bearish) to 60% bullish (40% bearish) as we thought inflation would peak by now, but we were wrong – not helped by the war and then the China lockdown. We now assess a 50% probability of equity markets continuing their fall with healthcare our favourite low beta (defensive) sector; a 30% probability of markets rallying with some of the older ‘growth’ leaders with semiconductors our favourite high beta (offensive) industry; and a 20% probability of markets rallying with some of the newer “value” leaders with commodity (not consumer or financial) stocks our favourite in this area.

A crucial question to consider is whether this is a ‘mid-cycle correction’ or the beginning of a “major bear market?” The honest answer is that nobody knows but that the probability of the latter has clearly increased, with yield curves flattening, credit spreads widening, oil prices rising and equity markets falling. It is well worth remembering that 11 of the last 12 US recessions followed a rise in oil prices. Our top-down monthly sector/regional scorecard has seen Europe, Japan and the consumer discretionary sector all deteriorate, with the more defensive healthcare sector improving. So we have been buying some new stocks in the healthcare sector and think it could be one of the leading sectors for the next several years. According to our process, healthcare is the best defensive growth sector, semiconductors are the best cyclical growth industry, and the commodity exporting countries are attractive because they have both defensive and cyclical growth characteristics.  However, we worry about “demand destruction” in these commodity areas as central bankers around the world continue to put interest rates up to slow down demand to reduce inflationary pressures. 

At this point in the cycle, regardless of whether it ultimately turns out to be a mid-cycle correction (soft landing and minor bear market) or the beginning of a global recession (hard landing and major bear market), we think the best advice is to sell ‘growth traps’ (speculative, unprofitable  concept stocks), sell ‘value traps’ (cyclicals with leveraged balance sheets) and then look to buy the dip in steady growth “compounders” once the worst of the interest rate rises are over.  As Warren Buffet wrote in his 1989 letter to shareholders, ‘it is far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price’. 

This commodity cycle will be different from the last one. The 2002-2008 commodity cycle was driven by the positive demand shock from China joining the WTO (equity market bullish), but the new 2022-202? commodity cycle is driven by the negative supply shock from Russia invading Ukraine (equity market bearish). If policy makers recognise and react to this new radically different regime and realise that putting up interest rates does not cure a supply-side problem, then this will probably turn out to be a ‘mid-cycle correction - buy the dip’. If not, and policy makers keep raising rates while yield curves flatten then invert, credit spreads widen, and we go into a global recession, then we will get more bearish and change the portfolio accordingly. In this scenario, many low-quality stocks with stretched balance sheets will have a very long way to fall; and we would move the portfolio up the quality curve and focus on those companies with rock solid balance sheets that can weather the difficult combination of rising interest rates, rising input costs, and slowing economic growth.

The information provided on this webpage is for professional advisers only. The value of an investment and the income from it can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount invested. This may be partly the result of exchange rate fluctuations in investments which have an exposure to foreign currencies. You should be aware that past performance is no guarantee of future performance.

Investors should note that this strategy may invest in emerging markets and such investments may carry risks with failed or delayed settlement and with registration and custody of securities. Companies in emerging markets may not be subject to accounting, auditing and financial reporting standards or be subject to the same level of government supervision and regulation as in more developed markets. Government involvement in the economy may affect the value of investments in certain emerging markets and the risk of political instability may be high. The reliability of trading and settlement systems in some emerging markets may not be equal to that available in more developed markets which may result in problems in realising investments. Lack of liquidity and efficiency in certain of the stock markets or foreign exchange markets in certain emerging markets may mean that from time to time the Investment Manager may experience difficulty in purchasing or selling holdings of securities. Furthermore, due to local postal and banking systems, no guarantee can be given that all entitlements attaching to quoted and over-the counter traded securities acquired by this strategy, including those related to dividends, can be realised.

The Funds investment include shares in small-cap companies and these tend to be traded less frequently and in lower volumes than larger companies making them potentially less liquid and more volatile.

Amongst other characteristics, the Fund promotes environmental and social characteristics and invests in companies that apply good corporate governance.  JOHCM Funds (Ireland) Limited, the Fund’s manager has therefore categorised the Fund as meeting the provisions set out in Article 8 of EU Regulation 2019/2088 on sustainability-related disclosures in the financial services sector (“SFDR”).  

In looking for investments, J O Hambro Capital Management Limited (“Investment Manager”) seeks to avoid investing in companies which contribute to significant social and/or environmental harms, and thereby fail environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) key performance indicators which are directly integrated within all aspects of the investment process. 

In order to achieve this, the Fund applies exclusions to the selection of underlying assets as part of its investment process, including an exclusion for businesses that are rated as ‘Severe’ by Sustainalytics, ‘CCC’ by MSCI ESG or assessed as ‘non-compliant’ with the UN Global Compact. 

In order to support the reduction of adverse environmental impacts of the Fund’s portfolio, and in particular its contribution to climate change, the Investment Manager excludes investments in companies that: 

  1. derive 10% or more of their total revenue directly from extraction, exploration, distribution, or refinement of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas), or fossil fuel-based power generation.  

* Companies with a climate transition plan may be exempted from this exclusion, provided that they have in place a Paris Agreement aligned transition plan and produce climate-related financial disclosures annually, which in both cases we consider credible.

These selection criteria may not be disapplied or overridden by the Investment Manager unless it is a fossil fuel company with a Paris Agreement-aligned climate transition plan and it produces robust climate-related financial disclosures annually, which in both cases the Investment Manager considers credible. 

Also excluded, to avoid contributing to social harms, are companies that: 

  • produce tobacco; 
  • manufacture controversial weapons; 
  • derive 10% or more of their total revenue from the production of alcoholic beverages; 
  • derive 10% or more of their total revenue from the manufacture, ownership or operation of gambling facilities, gaming services or other forms of wagering; 
  • derive 10% or more of their total revenue from the manufacture of non-controversial weapons or armaments; or 
  • derive 10% or more of their total revenue from the manufacture or distribution of pornography. 

Additionally, the Investment Manager recognises that ESG factors can create risks and opportunities for companies and as such incorporates ESG risks into their analytical framework and portfolio construction.  

In order to measure and monitor the environmental and social characteristics of the Fund, the Investment Manager will review a variety of internally- and externally-generated ESG data produced by its third-party data providers and published by its investee companies. This allows the Investment Manager to review performance against those environmental and social characteristics across all four dimensions of the investment process. 

The Investment Manager treats climate change mititgation and adaptation as a material factor within its investment approach in accordance with the EU’s Taxonomy Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2020/852 and amending Regulation (EU) 2019/2088). Climate change poses fundamental risks and opportunities that can affect the long-term performance and value of investments.

The Investment Manager accounts for and promotes climate change mitigation and adaption factors by utilising the following methods:

•    There is a preference for companies with low exposure to fossil fuels, through the Fund actively not investing in companies where extraction, exploration, distribution, or refinement of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) or fossil fuel-based power generation account for 10% or more of total revenue.

•    The Investment Manager may though disapply these selection criteria to support transitional initiatives, where companies have a transitioning or decarbonising business strategy, aligned with the long-term temperature goal of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. 

•    The Investment Manager undertakes active engagement with certain companies that have significantly below average sustainability characteristics but a high propensity for transformation, and therefore supports change. 

Due to a lack of reliable, timely and verifiable data, the Investment Manager is unable to make a full assessment of the Fund’s investments against the TR’s Technical Screening Criteria (“TSC”).  As such, it has been determined that 0% of the Fund’s investments are in economic activities that qualify as environmentally sustainable under the TR. 

The Investment Manager is keeping this situation under review and will provide an updated statement on the percentage of the Fund’s alignment with the TR’s TSC once sufficient data is available.

The do no significant harm principle only applies to those investments underlying the financial product that take into account the EU criteria for environmentally sustainable economic activities. The investments underlying the remaining portion of this financial product do not take into account the EU criteria for environmentally sustainable economic activities.

Governance

Investee companies must follow good governance practices. This requires investee companies to adhere to minimum standards in various areas including sound management structures, employee relations, remuneration of staff and tax compliance. The Investment Manager is a signatory to the UK Stewardship Code 2012. JOHCM has met the expected standard of reporting under the UK Stewardship Code in 2021 and has been approved as a signatory.  As a signatory to the Code and the UNPRI, the good governance practices of investee companies are assessed by the Investment Manager prior to making an investment and periodically thereafter. 

Index

The Fund uses the MSCI ACWI Standard Index for performance fee calculation purposes only and it is not, nor is it intended to be, aligned and/or consistent with the environmental and social characteristics promoted by the Fund. 

Periodic Reports

A description of the extent to which environmental and social characteristics are met will be available as part of the annual report which will be published on this website once available. The Fund’s most recent annual report does not include any information pursuant to SFDR.  

Implementing exclusionary screens

In implementing the exclusionary screens, the Investment Manager utilises the business involvement screening service offered by its third-party provider, ISS. As such, it relies upon ISS’s business involvement definitions, data and assessments.  We utilise the UN Global Compact assessment of another third-party provider, Sustainalytics.  Further details are available upon request. 

The exclusion criteria referred to above will be applied prior to making any investment and the Fund’s portfolio will be monitored for any investments which breach these exclusion criteria on a periodic basis.
