Our strategy is to only allocate capital to high-quality ideas where we have conviction. Our focus is on identifying businesses with a competitive advantage that are well-positioned in attractive end markets to grow free cash flow, at an acceptable margin of safety to valuation. This is done through a rigorous, repeatable and disciplined quality assessment of the company’s earnings, business and management. As part of this we undertake an extensive company visitation program which is important in providing ‘insight’, testing our thinking and developing our highest conviction ideas. We seek to know as much about our companies as possible, with a view to mitigating permanent capital loss and delivering outperformance over the long term.
SGH20 is a benchmark unaware large cap strategy with the ability to invest up to 25% of funds in small-mid cap companies (with market capitalisation of less than $1.5bn). SGH20 will at all times be invested in a portfolio of ASX companies representing between 80% and 100% of the fund’s overall value, with cash levels not exceeding 20% of funds. Individual positions are limited to 10% of the fund’s overall value when purchased (with hard limit of 15% subject to market movements). Maximum active sector position limits exist to maintain appropriate portfolio diversification while also ensuring the portfolio can still benefit significantly from its concentrated strategy and high-active share.
