A Company Valuation Framework is at the core of the investment team’s research process. Success is based on the strength of three key factors – business model, financial model, and efficient capital allocation – ultimately however, valuation is key.
When constructing the portfolio, business risk is a key driver of position size. Companies with higher business risk will typically have lower weightings to minimise downside potential.

The value of investments, and any income generated from them, can fall as well as rise. Where charges are taken from capital, this may constrain future growth.
Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.
Investment objectives and performance targets may not necessarily be achieved, losses may be made.
Geographic / Sector: Investments may be primarily concentrated in specific countries, geographical regions and/or industry sectors. This may mean that the resulting value may decrease whilst portfolios more broadly invested might grow. Derivatives: The use of derivatives is not intended to increase the overall level of risk. However, the use of derivatives may still lead to large changes in value and includes the potential for large financial loss. A counterparty to a derivative transaction may fail to meet its obligations which may also lead to a financial loss. Equity investment: The value of equities (e.g. shares) and equity-related investments may vary according to company profits and future prospects as well as more general market factors. In the event of a company default (e.g. insolvency), the owners of their equity rank last in terms of any financial payment from that company.
