Should we buy?
This mid-cap fund maintains a significant presence in large and small caps outside of its main theme. The fund’s preference is for scalable, niche companies with strong cash flow, a healthy balance sheet and a management pedigree. He manages a compact portfolio that sets him apart from many peers and allows large deviations from the index, while maintaining modest positions even in his best bets. In addition, he only takes active overweight positions in all his bets against the index. The fund’s performance has declined over the past year, but its long-term performance history is healthy. Its superior downside performance puts it on a solid long-term basis.
