Seilern Investment Management, the long-term investment management group, celebrates the 20th anniversary of its flagship fund Stryx World Growth. Launched in January 1996, the fund has followed a strict investment process, investing in a concentrated portfolio of high quality growth stocks. The performance is as follows:
- Since launch, 15 January 1996, the fund has delivered growth of 297.0 per cent (7.1 per cent compound annual growth rate) versus the index (MSCI World TR) which returned 145.8 per cent (4.6 per cent CAGR) in the same period.
The fund has followed the same strategy since its inception, one that is driven by long-term perspective and a commitment to investing in quality growth businesses.
The companies within the ‘Seilern Universe’, the pool of companies the fund managers may invest from, are identified through a rigorous, proprietary research process. Only the highest quality companies with superior business models, stable and predictable earnings, and a sustainable competitive advantage are selected for inclusion. Once selected, these companies are then held in the portfolio for the long-term, often for a period of many years.
Peter Seilern-Aspang, founder of the company and architect of the investment process commented: “The value of what Seilern has done over the last 20 years is now clear from the performance record. The firm’s philosophy, only to invest in the best, has paid off over the long-run. The key to our success is finding these companies and having the conviction to leave them to grow. These companies have proven they can perform across all cycles, and, ultimately, outperform the market significantly.”
