Our view on this Fund

This fund is on the Wealth Shortlist of funds our analysts believe have the potential to outperform their peers over the long term. However, this is not a recommendation to buy.

James Harries is focused on delivering growth in both income and capital over the long term. He's more concerned with growing investors' income sustainably over time rather than seeking higher but potentially unreliable yields. His emphasis on high-quality businesses means the fund could work well alongside 'value' funds investing in unloved companies. The fund's global reach could also make it a good option for adding international diversification to a portfolio.

Our view on the sector

Equity income funds are popular with investors. Most try to generate a rising income, and increase the value of your original investment, over the long term. The income can be paid out, or reinvested to boost long-term growth. Equity income funds have traditionally focused on the UK, and there's still a strong case for UK equity income. But there's a growing case for investing globally for income too. The number of companies outside the UK offering high and rising dividends has increased rapidly. And exposure to foreign currencies will boost returns if sterling weakens, like it did after the UK voted to leave the European Union in 2016, but the reverse is true if sterling strengthens.

Performance Analysis

The fund has performed strongly since it launched in November 2016. Harries' record goes back much further than that though. Looking at it from the end of 2005, our analysis suggests his performance has been driven mainly by investing in the right areas at the right time rather than his stock-picking, which has nonetheless been positive. Given his fairly conservative approach, Harries' best performance has been during falling markets, as his funds have usually held up much better, but they've normally lagged rising markets.

Investment Philosophy

Protecting investors' wealth is the most important thing to Harries. He believes that's the best starting point for growing wealth over the long term.

Process and Portfolio Construction

Harries focuses on large, financially robust companies, whose products and services are generally always in demand. He can look anywhere in the world to find them, but rarely looks among higher-risk emerging markets. He invests in a relatively small number of companies, so each stock has the potential to make a big impact on returns, but it's a higher-risk approach. Harries prefers to invest in companies for the long term. That means he usually owns them for many years, and doesn't tend to buy or sell much. Although an income fund, Harries is more focused on the fund's total return rather than income alone. He would sacrifice yield if he thought it would improve long-term returns.
