Investment Strategy

The fund invests in a mix of:

  • Directly owned assets
  • Other funds we manage, such as the Ranger Fund
  • Third-party funds

When investing with third-party funds, we carefully select managers by understanding their philosophies, strategies and approaches, and how well they align with the objectives for the fund.

The fund uses the following risk mitigation tools to smoothen the ride:

  • Diversification (across growth and defensive assets, and across countries)
  • Flexible strategies (greater freedom to avoid overpriced assets)
  • Insurance strategies (that pay off in market downturns)

The fund does not have a strict target asset allocation rather employs broad ranges for the different asset classes (see Asset Allocation table below).

The fund pays a monthly distribution that can be taken as cash or re-invested into additional units.
