Factsheet: Artemis Global Growth I Acc

Global Growth

Rated Fund 2014-2018. Seeks growth at a reasonable price

This fund was highly commended in the Larger Global Growth Fund category in the Money Observer 2017 fund awards. Launched in 1990, it has been managed by Peter Saacke since 2004. He has achieved a strong long-term record.

Saacke is a �GARP (growth at a reasonable price)' investor, looking for companies around the world that he thinks are attractively valued because they may be out of favour, but that have the potential to grow.

He uses Artemis' in-house quantitative screening tool, SmartGARP, to screen a firm's finances to help spot winners and keep decision-making objective � the aim of the exercise is to draw the manager's attention to important financial information and to stop overload.

He then carries out his own stock-specific due diligence to make sure there is a real investment story behind any attractive SmartGARP score. As well as helping him to establish what to buy and when, the system also alerts him to problems with existing holdings.

With many fund managers aiming for more concentrated portfolios nowadays, Saacke opts for a relatively large and well-diversified portfolio of holdings. The fund spreads its assets thinly � its biggest holding at the end of 2017, Apple, accounts for just over 2 per cent of the portfolio.

Around one third of its �775 million of assets is in US stocks, with 28.5 per cent in emerging markets and 22.5 per cent in Europe. It has smaller allocations to Japan, the UK, Asia Pacific and Latin America.
