More than just a fund
Carmignac Portfolio Grandchildren is designed to cover several generations by investing in “quality companies”, i.e. those with sound finances and sustainable profitability. These companies often have less debt and high stable margins, making them more cash generative1. This allows them to reinvest internally and fuel innovation in order to create additional growth engines.
The Fund adopts a unique and robust investment process measuring quality through key metrics. Our selection process enables us to present a portfolio of 35-45 convictions from an investment universe of 1,500 stocks. An important asset of our approach is also the optimisation of market cyclicality, which is achieved via an active management of position sizing.
A fund for future generations
Studies shows that wealth transferred through 2045 will total USD 84.4 trillion—with USD 72.6 trillion in assets transferred to heirs, while USD 11.9 trillion will be donated to charities .
The “quality companies” in which we invest have been chosen due to their true long-term growth potential. By investing in such companies, Carmignac Portfolio Grandchildren aims to achieve long-term outcomes and therefore build a legacy not only for the investors themselves, but also one that can be passed on from generation to generation.
With this objective of transmission through the generations, we are convinced that, as investors, it is our responsibility to create value for our clients through a sustainable approach, and to preserve our world for future generations. We strive to identify firms generating positive change based on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) defined by the United Nations. At Carmignac, we identify nine of the SDGs as ‘investable’, which means that companies in which our funds can invest are able to support the progress towards these goals through their products and services. In this sense, Carmignac Portfolio Grandchildren has a sustainable objective: more than 50% of the fund’s AUM is invested in companies with over 50% of their revenues derived from goods and services positively aligned with at least one of the nine ‘investable’ SDGs investable by Carmignac: (1) No Poverty; (2) No Hunger; (3) Good Health and Well Being; (4) Quality Education; (6) Clean Water; (7) Affordable and Clean Energy; (9) Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure; (11) Sustainable Cities and Communities; and (12) Responsible Consumption and Production.
Quality drives innovation
Carmignac Portfolio Grandchildren picks “quality companies” that reinvest their profits for the future as they aim towards sustainable growth. We engage with companies to discuss their process on how they identify the emerging needs of their changing environment to adapt their strategy. Companies that strive to anticipate changes by investing in R&D will be able to offer consumers innovative products.
Focusing on companies that reinvest their profits, Carmignac Portfolio Grandchildren offers opportunity through businesses that we think could remain profitable by continuously adapting to its environment.
