Our Investment Process

The fund managers believe the key to generating outperformance is through high conviction, long-term, research-led company selection.
The Liontrust US Opportunities Fund’s investment process leans upon the belief that technological disruption will have a marked impact on global stock markets in the years ahead. Understanding the pervasive role that technology is playing in every sector will be key to distinguishing the winners and losers of the future.
The Fund aims to create a portfolio focused on the beneficiaries of digitalisation but importantly doing so in a style conscious manner, building a ‘core’ portfolio. The manager does this by investing across three different categories of digitalisation beneficiaries: the disruptors, which tend to be growth orientated, and embracers and enablers of digitalisation which offer a mix of ‘growth’, ‘value’ and potentially more cyclical opportunities. 
The Fund aims to provide balanced exposure across disruptors, embracers and enablers. Each of these categories have different stock characteristics and we believe as part of a balanced portfolio, that they can benefit from the hugely powerful theme of disruption.
Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of an investment and the income generated from it can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. You may get back less than you originally invested.

Where applicable the quartile rank is for the primary share class within the sector. If your investment is made in a currency other than that used in the past performance calculation the return may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations.
