We believe that equities are the best long-term asset class, and the US remains the deepest, best performing major market in the long-term.
Our objective is to invest in a range of stocks that Wall Street either misses or ignores and to provide better investment returns than the S&P 500.
We invest in US small-cap value which is the best long-term asset class in the world (Fama, French). This makes our portfolio of around 160 stocks a good complement to existing US equity exposure.
Once we have identified a promising stock we stick with it. We take pleasure in watching small dynamic companies grow and evolve and become more widely owned. A significant number of stocks have been in our portfolio for a decade or more.
The daily NAV for the VT De Lisle America Fund can be found here. The sterling and dollar classes are synonymous as no currency hedging is used*. For instance, if the exchange rate reverted to levels of August 2010 when the UCITS III started, at $1.56, the prices of the two classes would be the same. Annual performance data from inception in July 2005 to August 2010 can be found from our monthly newsletters below.
*For sterling investors who wish to mitigate the uncertainty of currency swings we also have a hedged class. Our commentary on the dollar-sterling relationship can be found here.
Investors can also apply directly to the Fund through our ACD/Administration Valu-Trac.
