Fund Description

Fund managers Rachel Reutter and Michael Ulrich, supported by experienced analyst Roshni Bolton, run a concentrated portfolio of best-in-class UK large and mid-cap companies.

They invest in companies with reliable cashflows which they expect and encourage management to invest back into their businesses to sustain future growth. The team conduct their own work on sustainability that goes beyond the box-ticking exercises conducted by rating agencies. They engage with management teams to encourage them to develop transparent and meaningful sustainability goals.

The team view markets as cyclical, inefficient and prone to bouts of irrational behaviour, where capital can be permanently destroyed. They believe that a focus on capital preservation is key to achieving long-term growth. The team look for companies with strong balance sheets and robust accounting, where organic investment is prioritised over ego-boosting and value-destroying acquisitions. They believe sell discipline is an underrated skill and use valuation control to protect clients’ capital.

The team buy companies whose end markets benefit from tailwinds that will enable these firms to grow over long periods. They avoid businesses reliant on an economic cycle or mature markets, where growth can only be achieved through a fight for market share.

The team run a concentrated portfolio and are unconstrained by sector or benchmark weights. This absolute approach to portfolio construction means the portfolio will have no exposure to areas of the market that the fund managers believe will destroy value.

The result is a high conviction portfolio of best-in-class companies with attractive growth and valuation characteristics.

Investment Strategy
  • The team use top-down thematic research to identify  ‘following winds’ along with analysis of economic and investment cycles. This approach ensures the portfolio benefits from positive and often structural trends that persist for long periods of time.  The team then apply a rigorous quality control in order to identify companies which are able to generate predictable and growing cash flows on a forecast basis. The final element of analysis is the application of a valuation control which emphasises absolute, not relative valuation. Valuation is viewed as art not science. 
  • The fund managers believe that sell discipline is essential to protect client capital.  The managers implement a sell-to-zero policy when material downside risk is identified. The team takes high conviction positions in 20-40 stocks and investments are made irrespective of benchmark weightings. 
  • Risk is defined as the probability and scale of a capital loss and not deviation from the benchmark. Within investments risk is seen as possible impairment to cash-flow not the short-term move in a share price. 
Reasons To Invest
  • Focus on capital preservation and absolute performance over the long-term sets the fund apart from competitor funds chasing short term performance.  
  • Value-add from where assessment of top-down thematic research meets rigorous bottom-up company analysis.  
  • High-conviction positions in 20-40 stocks made irrespective of benchmark weightings. 
  • The fund has established a long and successful track record and has a clear investment process which has been tested over many market cycles.

Investment Objective

The Fund aims to achieve consistent capital appreciation over the longer term by investing in stocks of primarily UK-listed large and mid-sized companies. Up to 10% of the Fund may be in international stocks. A thematic, top-down process is used to identify stock ideas and then married to a rigorous approach to valuation. Portfolio construction is benchmark-unaware with roughly equally-weighted positions in typically 30-40 stocks reflecting high conviction management.

Strategy Highlights

As at 31 August 2021

Our portfolio remains chock full of highly cash-generative businesses. There is no more important decision that company leaders must make, than how to spend that cash. Our preference has always been for investment back into the business so that the company’s market position becomes stronger and growth continues into the future. We are not fans of buybacks or of excessive dividend policies that starve a business of investment or weaken the balance sheet.

Two of the strongest performers during the period, Wood Group and SSE, are benefiting from a previous increase in investment in renewable energy and infrastructure assets. Wood Group reported an acceleration in its order book which is supportive of the group’s strategy to pivot growth towards green energy projects and infrastructure re-build. As at June 2021, the group’s order book was up some 18% on December 2020 levels. The group continues to prioritise deleveraging its balance sheet. It cancelled its dividend in 2020 and won’t be paying an interim dividend to support the working capital outflows which come with a pick-up in business activity. 

SSE rose over 10% during the month as the market increasingly recognises the value in its portfolio of offshore wind and hydro power generation which it has been investing in for over a decade. Whilst the company has done well to invest heavily in these new assets, we continue to believe the company is paying too large a dividend, which is causing unnecessary strain on the balance sheet. We have set up a meeting with the company’s new Chair to make our case for a more sustainable capital allocation policy.

Towards the end of the month Smiths Group announced that it was selling its Medical division. This division has sucked up a disproportionate amount of group cashflow in the past and delivered only mediocre top line growth. The sale should enable the company to focus its capital allocation on growing its four other market leading businesses where long-term prospects look far brighter.

At the start of August WPP announced strong interim results which clearly demonstrate the positive effects of capital allocation decisions made by the current management team over the last three years. During this period the group has made over fifty disposals and reduced debt from over $4bn to less than £1bn. Just as important as deleveraging have been the investments made in digital advertising and media assets. WPP is a leader in using AI to drive digital advertising and e-commerce and this is delivering accelerating growth in a business that had been struggling under its previous management team.

During the period we started a new position in Future Plc. The Bath based business is a global leader in specialist online media and includes web-sites such as Tech-Radar and Tom’s Guide. Its brand reaches a global audience of almost 400 million users and it has invested well in a platform of content and advertising delivery that is driving strong growth and is increasingly scalable. It complements a number of portfolio holdings that are investing in and benefiting from growth in digital advertising and e-commerce including WPP and Next.

Our holding in UDG was bought by private equity, at a better price than the original bid that we rejected. The appetite for UDG Healthcare, Morrison’s and other assets continues to demonstrate the value the UK market offers, particularly in world flooded with excess capital. 

The portfolio remains in good shape offering a concentrated exposure to the UK’s best-in-class assets. Our companies are allocating capital to areas that benefit from long term demand growth which we expect to drive the virtuous circle of more cash profit and ultimately higher share prices over time.

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.

Environmental and Social Characteristics

The information set out below relates to the Irish-domiciled fund which has been established for this strategy.  To date this fund has not yet been launched.  The UK-domiciled fund follows the same investment strategy, but is not required to comply with the full requirements of SFDR.

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.    In order to achieve this, the Investment Manager uses ESG scores to populate its own proprietary ESG scorecard which it uses to assess and monitor its investments.  The Fund seeks to avoid those companies it rates as “Failing to meet standards” on that proprietary scorecard. The selection criteria may not be disapplied or overridden by the Investment Manager. 

When an investee company is rated as ‘Failing to meet standards’ on its proprietary ESG scorecard, the Investment Manager will engage with that issuer for a period of up to 18 months to allow the company to implement change, otherwise the Fund will exit that position.  

The team recognises that ESG factors can create risks and opportunities for companies and look for companies who may benefit from this. 

In order to measure and monitor the environmental characteristics of the Fund, the Investment Manager utilises a proprietary scorecard which measures each investee company against not only financial and business characteristics, but also relevant social and environmental metrics.  The Investment Manager will also consider data provided by a third-party data provider, although this will not necessarily directly influence whether a company will be bought or sold by the Fund. 

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, is requesting to be a signatory to the UK Stewardship Code 2020 (together the “Code”) and is a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (the “UNPRI”). 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 FTSE All Share Total Return 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

Irish-domiciled fund
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 its exclusionary screens, we utilise the business involvement screening service offered by our third-party provider, ISS. As such, we rely upon ISS’s business involvement definitions, data and assessments.  Further details are available on 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.
