Investment objective
The fund's objective is to achieve long-term capital growth by investing in stocks of leading global companies in their respective sectors. The selection philosophy is linked to the principle that share prices follow the trend of company earnings, and it is believed that leaders can more easily provide lasting growth in earnings, given the competitive and evolutionary advantage of which they are characterized. In particular, the selection approach aims to identify companies with earnings growth above the market average which is not accurately reflected in the current valuation.

Manager comment
Manager comment
In February, Pharus Equity Leader recorded a negative performance of -0.83%, better than the market which recorded -2.36%.
This performance was driven by the market's fear of a renewed rise in inflation, also confirmed by the month-end PPI, and increased expectations of higher prices and risk aversion. Among the best performers for the month we had companies from our favourite sectors, discretionary and technology. Among the worst performers, we had Chinese companies which, after a positive start in January, corrected. Companies we follow with interest include JD, Alibaba and China Water. The sector allocation remains largely unchanged, although we are starting to look closely at the Health Care and Staples sectors which are starting to show very attractive valuations.
The fund maintains about 40% exposure to the dollar.
