Portfolio Positioning as of 12/31/2020

  • Our investment philosophy is focused on identifying durable franchises that also exhibit a compelling combination of strong growth prospects and seasoned management teams that are mispriced by the market.
  • We believe we can deliver consistently strong returns by owning a portfolio of durable growth companies that have seen growth trends and adoption structurally accelerate supporting current valuation, have developed a stronger competitive position, or have been temporarily negatively impacted by the current environment creating an attractive entry point.
  • The conclusion of the U.S Presidential election and the announcement of multiple vaccines of high efficacy occurred during the fourth quarter. We increased the Fund’s positions in businesses that we believe will benefit from a return to normal activities, while adding to areas that will continue to benefit from changes ushered in by the pandemic.
  • While we cannot predict the depth and duration of the current crisis, we believe that maintaining a disciplined approach and continuing to execute according to our philosophy and process will serve us well.
  • Furthermore, we believe durable franchises will persevere through challenging environments like we are seeing currently.
