EFG Asset Management (EFGAM), an international provider of actively managed investment products and services, has launched the New Capital Global Equity Conviction Fund, an open-ended equity fund that will typically invest in 40 to 60 global stocks across all market capitalisations.
The Fund will be managed by Robin Milway, a highly experienced London-based equity fund manager who joined EFGAM in 2012. Robin will combine his expertise in bottom-up stock selection with EFGAM’s top-down geographic and sector analysis, without the constraints of a benchmark or specific investment style. Prior to joining EFGAM, Robin spent nine years at Cooper Investors in Melbourne Australia where he managed the CI Global Equities Fund. During his tenure at the firm, the fund returned 8.5% annualised over seven years, outperforming the MSCI by 5.6% annualised. (Source: CI).
The New Capital Global Equity Conviction Fund is based on EFGAM’s Global Equity Conviction Strategy which Robin has been running as part of discretionary mandates since joining the firm. The Fund will mirror the investment approach of its top-performing European counterpart, the New Capital Dynamic European Equity Fund, which is also co-managed by Robin Milway and Bibiana Carretero. The new Fund will be available to retail investors pending local registration and is the tenth sub-fund in the New Capital UCITS family – a range of high-conviction funds designed to produce long-term outperformance for clients.
Moz Afzal, Chief Investment Officer, EFGAM: “We are very excited to launch this long-awaited product for our clients. Many investors are increasingly looking for exposure to global investment opportunities and the launch of the New Capital Global Equity Conviction Fund caters for this demand. Robin has an outstanding proven track record of managing global equities and we are pleased to add to our specialist equity offering.”
Robin Milway, Portfolio Manager, New Capital Global Equity Conviction Fund, EFGAM: “The name of the fund underlines the philosophy of this fund – only stocks we have the highest conviction in make the cut. Our proprietary analytic framework allows us to identify companies that can sustainably grow their cash flows over time and importantly know what to do with the profits. This tried and tested investment methodology, which we’ve developed over the last decade, has resulted in long-term, sustainable outperformance for clients.”
