Ashburton Investments is marking the ten-year anniversary of the its Global Leaders Equity Portfolio, that has provided a strong track-record of peer-group beating returns over the last ten years.
The portfolio, which was launched in May 2011 and is also available in Fund form, currently has more than £188m in assets under management.
It is a concentrated portfolio of the world’s most prominent companies, holding positions in companies including Samsung and Microsoft that are well positioned to weather tough market conditions, designed to provide investors with peace of mind during volatile and uncertain times.
The focus is on a concentrated selection of quality mega-caps featuring leading industry positions that, in turn, enable the respective companies to take advantage of volatility in economic activity over time and offer a conservative way to participate in the global equity market.
Dr James Cooke (pictured), Director of Investments and Head of Global Equities for Ashburton Investments (International) told Channel Eye: “We’re very happy with the way that this portfolio has performed, it has demonstrated a strong consistent performance against its peer group over the last 10 years, which is a testament to our robust investment philosophy and to the expertise of our global investment team. For over three decades, Ashburton Investments has invested in what makes sense, delivering good risk-adjusted returns through all market conditions”.
Ashburton Investments has been managing private client portfolios since its inception in 1982 and is backed up by one of Africa’s largest financial service providers, the FirstRand Group.
