Jupiter Global Value Equity Class X - Income (GBP)
Our view on this Fund
This fund features on our Wealth 50 list of what we believe are the best funds in each sector.
Often, it's the courage to look at the world differently, or stand apart from the crowd, that separates the great investors from the good. The discipline to invest against the herd has delivered time and again, so long as you're patient and accept it could be a bumpy ride.
Few have the discipline to be great contrarian investors, but in our opinion Jupiter's Ben Whitmore has mastered the craft. He's invested in unloved and undervalued UK companies for almost two decades. This fund, launched in March 2018, applies the same successful approach to companies globally.
Investing globally will present challenges. We don't find many fund managers able to do it successfully. Even though Ben Whitmore's global track record is short, his wider experience and disciplined approach lead us to believe he stands a great chance of success. Adventurous investors prepared to back him early could be well rewarded, but this fund will perform differently from his previous ventures.
