Rondure New World Fund
( RNWOX/RNWIX )
The New World Strategy is an unconstrained, index agnostic, total return portfolio designed to identify high quality, core businesses in the world's least developed economies or markets.
The Rondure New World Fund¹s investment objective is long-term growth of capital.
The Fund will, under normal market conditions, invest at least 40% of its assets, calculated at the time of purchase, in equity securities of (i) issuers either organized or having headquarters in countries outside the United States, or (ii) issuers have a majority of their assets or revenues attributable to countries outside the United States. Collectively, such issuers will typically be organized, headquartered or economically linked to not less than three different countries other than the United States. Though the Fund may, subject to the requirements described above, invest in issuers located throughout the world, we expect that such issuers will typically have exposure to emerging or frontier markets. We consider emerging or frontier markets to be those countries excluded from the MSCI World Index of developed countries. The Fund is considered all cap, with no minimum or maximum market capitalization, however the Fund will primarily invest in companies with market capitalizations above $1.5 billion at the time of purchase. Investment opportunities are identified through a process of quantitative screening, followed by "bottom-up" fundamental analysis to identify high quality companies that it believes can provide sustainable returns. The Fund will seek to invest in what it considers to be great companies at good prices and good companies at great prices. The Fund invests in what it believes to be the best investments available without regard to benchmark weightings in regions, countries or industries. The assets may significantly shift between asset classes, sectors and geographic regions based on where it believe the best risk-adjusted return opportunities currently exist.
