The strategy invests in companies around the world which are in the recovery stage of their life cycle with a strong potential to create value
Why Global Recovery?
The strategy offers investors broad exposure across regions, sectors, capitalization tiers and stocks, to investments, that the manager believes have particularly strong potential to create value, generally following a period of depressed profits. The strategy benefits from the expertise of a highly regarded manager who works within an experienced and talented team of investment professionals.
The portfolio manager invests according to River and Mercantile's long established PVT philosophy, where stocks are evaluated by a combination of their potential to create value, their valuation and the timing of buying into a position.
Sophisticated quantitative analysis and intelligent screening finds only the best opportunities for the manager and investment team to debate and validate by applying rigorous fundamental research.
