Important information - The value of this fund can fall as well as rise so you could get back less than you invest. This information isn’t personal advice.

The HL Select Global Growth Shares fund is managed by our sister company HL Fund Managers Ltd.
What is HL Select Global Growth Shares?
This fund contains shares in high quality companies from around the world. Investing globally opens new opportunities to find truly exceptional companies from a large pool of choice including in emerging markets. It also means no single economy can affect the fund too much.
We might also invest in smaller companies where we see excellent growth potential. The fund will typically hold 30 to 40 companies. We want each investment to lift the fund when things go well, as we aim for higher returns. Investing in emerging markets, smaller companies, and it being a more concentrated portfolio make this fund a higher-risk option.
In all HL Select funds, our experts have carefully selected a small number of financially strong companies. Across at least the next five years, we think these companies will grow your investment through delivering exceptional products or services. Although, like all investments the value of the fund will go up and down, so you could get back less than you invest. With monthly emails and our HL Select blog, you can see every stock in each fund, have visibility of every investment decision we make, and a clear explanation of why it’s been chosen.

The investment strategy
We’re looking for a virtuous circle of growth.
If a business can keep growing reliably, compounding over a long time, it can increase its value many times over. Companies with fantastic products or services that are hard to copy generally have high profit margins and strong cash flows. This allows forward-thinking CEOs to keep debt low, ride out economic or political storms, re-invest back into their business and keep growing year after year.
We want to find these companies, wherever in the world they are. We’ll then hold on to them for as long as they keep doing it.

The fund will typically hold 30 to 40 companies. We want each investment to lift the fund when things go well, as we aim for higher returns. It works both ways though, so it’s a higher-risk approach.
