The Chautauqua International Growth Strategy invests in equity securities of non-U.S. companies with large market capitalizations. The strategy will normally be diversified among at least three countries. The strategy invests primarily in developed markets but may invest in emerging and less developed markets. The portfolio contains high-quality companies that employ better governance and disclosure, more conservative accounting, less financial leverage and “best-in-class” management. This reduces the risk of negative surprises and mitigates the risk of loss, which is a primary concern. In addition to generating high risk-adjusted returns, the approach creates upside market participation and downside protection.
- Concentrated portfolio of generally 25–35 stocks
- Positions are typically 1%–6% at the time of purchase
