A value-based global fund that stands out

Published: 30 May 2022, 15: 31Updated: 30 May 2022, 16:58Jonas Edholm, manager of Skagen Focus It is easy to get caught up in trend research when investing. But those who want to make real bargains on the stock market are wise to rethink. What characterizes the contrasting and value-based fund Skagen Focus, is a strong driving force to think independently. Where others follow established financial trends and flock around companies in obvious growth phases, the Focus team looks for findings that others have not yet discovered. – We invest in companies that for one reason or another are unjustifiably ignored, forgotten or misunderstood. Companies that according to our proven analysis have an upside in the share price of fifty percent within the next two to three years, says Jonas Edholm, manager of Skagen Focus.

By continuously acting value-driven according to clear models and sticking to their original investment test, they find uncut diamonds in the world’s stock markets: – We attach great importance to carefully examining balance sheets, where companies must have large cash positions or other underestimated assets that shareholders can access godo. Simplified, you can say that we want to be the first to find those flea market finds at the bottom of the box, he says. To provide a good spread of risk, the fund’s equity holdings are spread across both sectors and geographies in a way that deviates sharply from a global index. The fund’s diversification is a direct consequence of the price-oriented approach. See the portfolio overview here – We have a significant proportion of the fund invested in Japan, Korea and Canada that has a significant discount to our price targets, says Jonas Edholm. Skagen Focus’ largest holding right now is in a Canadian company, Cascades, which runs a circular business where they recycle used cartons to create new ones. – The share has incredible potential and is currently traded at three to four times normalized earnings. Within our investment horizon, the share is a clear doubling candidate and is also a star from a sustainability perspective, which is completely underestimated in today’s share price, he says. Read more about Skagen’s working methods hereThe fact that the stock market is currently shaky is not an obstacle for Skagen Focus – quite the opposite. – We are now experiencing greater volatility in the stock market and this creates good opportunities for us as a value-based, opposite and active investor. It is a good time and environment for this type of management right now, Jonas Edholm concludes. Historical returns are no guarantee of future returns. Your fund units can both increase and decrease in value and it is not certain that you will get back the entire invested capital.About SKAGEN Focus:
