Sands Capital Select Growth Fund Commentary

Investment Style

  • Identifies leading companies with dramatic wealth creation potential, focusing on six key investment criteria:
    - Sustainable, above-average earnings growth
    - Leadership position in a promising business space
    -Significant competitive advantages
    - Clear mission and value-added focus
    - Financial strength
    - Rational stock market valuation
  • Emphasizes investments in large-cap companies
  • Typically holds 25-35 companies
A WORD ABOUT RISK

The Fund invests in equities which are subject to market volatility and loss. The Fund invests in stocks of large-cap companies which may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges. The Fund invests in growth stocks which may be more volatile than investing in other stocks and may underperform when value investing is in favor. The Fund may focus its investments in specific sectors and therefore be susceptible to positive or negative developments in the sector which may increase the Fund’s volatility and magnify its effects on total return. The Fund is non-diversified, which means that it may invest a greater percentage of its assets in the securities of a limited number of issuers and may be subject to greater risks. Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk. The Advisor engages a sub-advisor to make investment decisions for the Fund’s portfolio; it may be unable to identify and retain a sub-advisor who achieves superior investment returns relative to other similar sub-advisors.
