The Structural Opportunities Process

The fund managers seek to identify stocks, sectors and countries experiencing mispriced structural or fundamental change. The process aims to exploit opportunities from change because investors are slow and reluctant to recognise fundamental turning points and because markets struggle to price the long duration of returns that structural change drives. Structural changes are typically driven by the progress of the economic cycle, the development of industrial cycles, policy and regulation, mergers, acquisitions or the emergence of new and  disruptive technologies.

GF Global Strategic Equity Fund

The Fund seeks to identify stocks, sectors and countries around the world experiencing unpriced structural or fundamental change. The greatest opportunities to implement the process are in emerging markets where deep and frequent structural changes take place.

Correctly identifying structural change can produce attractive and uncorrelated returns to the market over the long term. Disruptive change creates both winners and losers, so returns can be further enhanced by constructing a portfolio composed of both long and short ideas.

GF Global Water and Agriculture Fund

The Fund aims to exploit the opportunities created by change in the water and agriculture (and related energy and environment) sectors. The Fund invests in companies globally that are best placed to benefit from this change. 

Hugo Rogers manages the Liontrust Water and Agriculture fund, launched in January [2016], having run similar funds before. He says he has avoided the boom and bust that has afflicted the likes of the fertiliser manufacturers. He targets special situations that are unaffected by wider economic cycles.
