Evans & Partners International Fund rated 'Superior' by SQM Research
The Evans & Partners International Fund, a concentrated fund of 10 to 15 stocks, has been awarded 4.25 stars out of 5 by SQM Research and given a 'superior' rating.
The rating means that it is of high investment grade and suitable for inclusion on must approved product lists (APLs).
SQM cited solid consistency and the fund's ability to deliver after-fee returns in excess of expectations, along with some defensive characteristics in down markets, as strengths of the approach.
"The manager implements a disciplined investment process to invest in high quality, durable businesses with a long-term investment horizon (rather than a focus on quarterly earnings or short-term share price moves)," SQM said in its report.
