For the Fund, Tran Capital Management seeks high-quality companies with above-average growth and sustainable competitive advantages, purchased at what the portfolio managers believe to be attractive valuations at the time of investment.
GARP & ESG – It’s in Tran’s DNA
First and foremost, the Fund’s holdings need to have the characteristics and competitive advantages to produce superior returns over time. Then an extensive environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) evaluation is applied. A company’s proactive ESG orientation is often an indicator of sustainable long-term growth potential and aids in effective risk management.
