GF European Strategic Equity Fund

James Inglis-Jones & Samantha Gleave

The Fund

The Fund has been managed since launch in April 2014 by James Inglis-Jones and Samantha Gleave. The fund managers seek to deliver a positive absolute return over the long term by taking long and short positions, primarily in European companies. The Fund buys companies that can generate strong cash returns from their capital and appear cheap on these cash flows and shorts companies that are both expensive and struggling to generate cash.

The Cashflow Solution Process

The process is based on the belief the most important determinant of shareholder returns is company cash flows. The fund managers invest in companies that generate strong cash returns from their capital, appear cheap on those cash flows and are run by managers committed to an intelligent use of capital. They sell short stocks that are expensive, are struggling to generate any cash and are run by management investing heavily for future growth.

Key Risks

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Do remember that the value of an investment and the income generated from them can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed, therefore, you may not get back the amount originally invested and potentially risk total loss of capital. Investment in Funds managed by the Cashflow Solution team involves foreign currencies and may be subject to fluctuations in value due to movements in exchange rates. The Liontrust European Growth Fund holds a concentrated portfolio of stocks, if the price of one of these stocks should move significantly, this may have a notable effect on the value of the respective portfolio. The Liontrust Global Income Fund's expenses are charged to capital. This has the effect of increasing dividends while constraining capital appreciation.

This share class is hedged so investors do not benefit from or are disadvantaged from any movement in the value of the base currency of the fund against investible currencies. In contrast, if applicable, the index returns are in local currency and the average returns of the sector are in sterling.
