FundCalibre - Investing on the go

12-06-2024 • 24 minutos

Dr. Ian Mortimer, manager of the Guinness Global Innovators fund, discusses the fund’s focus on investing in quality growth companies that are exposed to long-term secular growth themes, rather than early-stage startups. He outlines the fund's nine core themes and explains why a significant part of their strategy involves semiconductor companies, which play a crucial role across various themes. He further explains their balanced approach to managing holdings, emphasising long-term investments and systematic trimming of large positions, like Nvidia, to manage risk.

What’s covered in this episode:

  • How do you define “innovation”
  • What themes are in the portfolio?
