Investment objective
To provide a return, net of fees, higher than that provided by the FTSE All Share Index over the long term (at least five years). At least 70% of the Fund is invested in shares of companies based in the UK (i.e. companies domiciled, headquartered or which conduct a majority of their business activity, in the UK). Up to 30% of the Fund may be invested in other assets, including shares of other companies (which may be based anywhere in the world), open-ended funds (including funds managed by Jupiter and its associates), cash and near cash.

Why we like the fund

Since taking the reins in November 2006, Ben Whitmore has managed the fund through some tough times for valuation focused investing - yet he’s not only met the fund’s stated objective of outperforming the FTSE All Share but done so remaining true to a well-founded process. The team seeks to invest in a concentrated list of holdings, 30-50 stocks with 40% weighting to the top 10 positions.

How to use this fund

The manager looks to construct the portfolio from an initial valuation screening followed by detailed fundamental analysis. The aim is to identify companies cheaply valued over ten-year business cycles. Given its strong valuation ethos, the fund’s performance may trail in stronger rising markets and over time the fund has proven to protect well in falling markets. This fund is most suitable for an investor with a medium to long term investment timeframe and a willingness to accept shorter-term relative underperformance.
