Wholesale Strategy Performance


The Wholesale Strategy is a high-conviction portfolio comprising the world’s best performing sustainable companies.

We remain invested for as long as our analysis indicates those companies remain high-quality. We know we are invested in the world’s best opportunities because we scan every listed company every three months. The Wholesale Strategy is open to Wholesale investors only.

Our Potential to Outperform

Our strategies aim to outperform the market over the long-term, driven by four key factors:

  1. As the businesses we are invested in mature, we recycle that capital into new emerging growth investments.
  2. Business models we are invested in have strong, long-term tailwinds because they are at the forefront of sustainable change required by humanity.
  3. Humanity is constantly evolving to meet new challenges. Our processes will continue to uncover high-quality companies meeting those challenges and we will invest in those opportunities at fair or discounted prices.
  4. Attempts to consistently predict market movements are impossible. We do not take a market or macro-economic view and move in or out of cash depending on that view. We hold high-quality companies for as long as our analysis can confirm they are high-quality. This allows our portfolio’s performance to closely resemble that of its underlying businesses.

Chart One above shows each investment over the three years and its contribution to gain in net asset value for the year. There have been a total of 25 investments over the three years. During that time our investment philosophy and methodology has developed which led to the sale of some investments.
