Our view on this Fund

This fund does not feature on the Wealth Shortlist of funds our analysts believe have the potential to outperform their peers over the long term. This is not a recommendation to sell; however, if you are thinking of adding to your investments, we believe the Wealth Shortlist is a good place to start. View funds on the Wealth Shortlist »

This fund aims to achieve long-term growth by investing in out-of-favour companies with recovery potential from around the world. That makes it different from many other global funds that focus on companies with high-growth expectations, which could provide diversification to a portfolio. Also unlike many other global funds, it invests less in the US and so could be used to gain international exposure to other stock markets.

Ben Whitmore is one of the most experienced managers investing in unloved companies. We like his and co-manager Dermot Murphy's disciplined approach. However, Whitmore and Murphy will be leaving Jupiter at some point after July 2024 to set up their own investment boutique Brickwood Asset Management. At time of writing, Jupiter are exploring the option for Whitmore and Murphy to run the fund on a sub-advisory basis, however, it's unclear whether the new business would meet the required due diligence standard for Jupiter. This outcome has not been confirmed, and Jupiter has not given an alternative should this plan not be implemented. We conduct due diligence before featuring a fund in any of our solutions and to date we have not completed such a process for Brickwood. As a result of the uncertainty this fund does not feature on the Wealth Shortlist.

Our view on the sector

It's natural for UK investors to focus on funds investing in their home market. But as the world has become more connected, so has the investment landscape. There are lots of funds investing across the globe, and these can be a great way to diversify an investment portfolio. Funds in the global sector can invest anywhere in the world. But they go about this in different ways. They vary in how much they can invest in certain types of companies, sectors, countries, or regions. Some focus on developed markets or large multinational corporations, while others invest more in higher-risk emerging markets or smaller companies. Some target companies with higher-growth expectations and others search for unloved companies with the potential to recover.

Performance Analysis

Since the fund launched in March 2018 it hasn't performed as well as the IA Global sector average. Value investing has been out of favour for much of this period, as the market has rewarded companies that have been growing, rather than ones that have fallen on hard times but could turn themselves around. That said, there have been times when value investing has been in favour and this fund has performed well.

Investment Philosophy

Whitmore and Murphy believe good long-term investment results can be achieved by investing in companies whose shares can be bought for less than their true worth - so-called value investing. This often involves investing in businesses that are unloved, but the managers expect to eventually return to favour, which could see their share price rise.

This approach requires patience, as it can take time for companies to recover or return to favour, and there is no guarantee that they ever will.

Process and Portfolio Construction

Investors can overreact to news, information, and research. This means they may over or underestimate companies' true value. Whitmore and Murphy aim to capitalise on this.

They look for companies where the true value might be significantly underappreciated. This means that as well as having a low valuation the company must typically be in good financial health, be profitable, and have a strong brand or franchise.

Investments are made in a range of companies across different industries. This is so the fund doesn't depend on the fortunes of a single area. The managers invest in relatively few companies, typically 35-55, so each can contribute significantly to performance, though this increases risk. So does the flexibility to invest in smaller companies and emerging markets.
