The Fund is the first easily-accessible fund in Singapore that invests in disruptors globally. It invests in 100 stocks shortlisted from an investible universe comprising disruptive companies, i.e. disruptors. The stocks in the Fund’s portfolio are selected by a 5-factor screening process.
The Fund invests in 100 stocks shortlisted from an investible universe comprising disruptive companies, i.e. disruptors. Our analysts scour global research reports and disruption-related exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) for stock ideas to be included in the investable universe. Our investment strategy is based upon key disruptive themes. It aims to generate returns from the following market anomalies:
a) The investment community is warming up to the idea of disruption and how it affects investment portfolios and strategies. While valuations have reflected the different growth potential of the incumbents and the disruptors, investors have yet to fully allocate to the latter under the new economy as seen in the size of traditional ETFs which mirror traditional broad market indices such as MSCI or FTSE.
b) The other anomaly is the low representation of China in the MSCI AC World Index. The Fund invests in big China-listed companies who are already leaders in social media, e-commerce and other technological innovation.
There is currently no index available to represent the performance of disruptors, hence there is currently no appropriate benchmark.
The investment approach is to achieve a diversified portfolio, so the LionGlobal Disruptive Innovation Fund investment team participates in the market performance of a number of disruptive themes within the investible universe when constructing the portfolio. Examples of the disruptive themes the Fund invests in are:
The largest segment within the universe, which is e-commerce, has around 30 stocks.
The Fund is rebalanced on a quarterly basis using the 5-factor screening process to ensure its portfolio weights do not drift excessively.
For the Fund’s portfolio construction, there are 5 factors being considered when selecting each stock to be part of the portfolio:
Each stock is scored based on these 5 factors. Based on the combined score of 5 factors, a weight is assigned to each stock for it to be selected as a part of a diversified portfolio with 100 disruptors.
The Fund aims to provide long-term capital growth by investing primarily in equities or equity-linked securities (including but not limited to, preference shares, real estate investment trusts and depositary receipts) of companies globally, which are potential disruptors with strong growth prospects.
The Fund invests in a globally diversified portfolio of disruptive companies through a factor-based screening process. This removes human biases and emotions, which could lead to irrational investment decisions. From an investable universe of disruptive companies, stocks are screened based on 5 factors: market capitalization, sales growth, price-to-sales ratio, price volatility, and long-term earnings-per-share growth.
The investible universe comprises companies that challenge the existing business models and whose innovative ideas have been proven and commercialized. There is no target country or sector allocation.
No, the Fund does not attempt to pick stocks to be part of its portfolio. The equal-weighted 5-factor screening process determines the 100 stocks and their respective portfolio weights.
