A focus on the US market

Portfolio

A focus on companies expected to benefit from long-term structural growth trends

 

The Portfolio is well diversified and is constructed without setting specific industry targets. Instead the Manager looks for companies backed by high-quality private equity managers with strong business characteristics in favoured sectors that the Manager believes can grow faster than gross domestic product.

An attractive maturity profile

The portfolio is on average positioned within the window of the three- to five-year holding period that is typically targeted by most private equity managers. The Manager believes a number of companies are well positioned for near-term exits.
