Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

June 2021

Your Fund returned +2.9% during the month compared to a return of +1.9% for the IA Flexible Investment (TR).

We recently started a new holding in Columbus Point Global Equity.  Columbus Point was founded in 2017 and has many of the characteristics we look for.  As an employee-owned investment boutique with a singular focus on one strategy, there is a strong alignment of interest between Columbus Point and its clients.  Columbus Point has no intentions of launching new strategies and the success of the business is intrinsically linked to the performance of its one fund.

A performance-driven culture is evident in the high conviction and concentrated nature of Columbus Point Global Equity’s portfolio, which typically holds a collection of 20-30 high quality global companies that generate strong returns on invested capital and have good long-term growth prospects.  Columbus Point’s relatively small size also allows it to invest in companies across the market cap spectrum.  As a result, holdings in companies such as Microsoft and Fiserv are complemented by investments in the likes of Auto Trader and Rightmove.

This multi-cap approach has served Rob Cope, Columbus Point’s founder, well over the years.  Whilst Columbus Point was only established in 2017, Rob is an experienced investor with an impressive track record from his days at Cantillon Capital.  He has also built a strong team of people around him, who are humble but also ambitious to make Columbus Point a success.  We believe these foundations give Columbus Point every chance of delivering compelling compound returns over time.
