Benefits of investing in the Schroder Global Value Fund

The benefits of investing in the Fund include:

  • Our research suggests that attractively priced companies with strong fundamentals outperform in the long-run. We exploit this long-term value premium through a highly diversified portfolio, typically invested in excess of 500 stocks. This high level of diversification minimises stock-specific risk without sacrificing overall conviction.
  • Globally unconstrained, all cap portfolio which maximises the opportunity set by looking beyond the index to an investment universe of more than 15,000 stocks globally. Our bottom-up process does not impose any index-based sector or region constraints, enabling us to invest wherever we find the best opportunities. Moreover, by weighting stocks based on their fundamentals, and not their size, we are able to invest across the market capitalisation spectrum.
  • Higher dividend yield. The Fund typically offers a higher dividend yield than the wider market.
  • Dedicated and well-resourced QEP investment team with clear ownership and accountability for meeting  the investment objective of the Fund.

Key Features

About the Fund

The Schroder Global Value Fund is an index unconstrained global equity strategy that aims to generate long-term returns before fees in excess of traditional capitalisation weighted global equity indices by investing in a diversified portfolio of equity and equity related securities

of companies worldwide (excluding Australia) using a Value based investment strategy. Returns provide diversification benefits to typical global equity benchmarks and other global equity managers.

Currency exposure is typically unhedged, however currency derivatives may be used with equity index futures in managing cash flows or to manage active currency positions relative to global equity indices for risk management purposes.

Some of the key features of the Fund include:

  • Value style - attractively priced companies with strong fundamentals outperform in the long run.
  • Embracing breadth - exploiting opportunities from more than 15,000 stocks globally.
  • Bottom-up, index unconstrained investing - minimal sector, region or size constraints maximises the potential return and minimises dead money allocated to expensive stocks simply to satisfy inefficient index constraints.
  • Focus on risk management and portfolio construction - a highly diversified portfolio minimises stock specific risk whilst retaining a high degree of conviction.
