Investment Objective

The Spyglass US Growth Fund (UCITS) seeks to achieve long - term capital appreciation with a view to outperforming the Russell 2500TM Growth Total Return Index.

Investment Approach

The fund is a concentrated, long-only portfolio of 25 rapidly growing, US companies. The portfolio is comprised of best-in-breed businesses operating across a wide array of industries that are experiencing secular growth trends. The investment manager seeks to identify these businesses before the consensus opinion agrees with our expectations.

Investment Philosophy

Spyglass believes an essential skill is required to beat the market over the long-term is the ability to develop out-of- consensus opinions that are validated by other investors agreeing with them - later.
