Investment Approach

Investment Approach

SouthernSun Global Opportunities Fund

The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in common stocks of U.S. and non-U.S. issuers that SouthernSun selects using a research-driven, value-oriented investment strategy. The Fund may also achieve its exposure to U.S. and non-U.S. issuers through investing in American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”), preferred stock or corporate bonds. Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 35% of its net assets in investments economically tied to countries other than the U.S. The Fund’s portfolio typically invests in 15-40 companies SouthernSun believes are niche dominant and attractively valued with financial flexibility and uniquely fitted management teams. When selecting companies for investment, SouthernSun seeks opportunities that it believes have the following characteristics:

  • Financial Strength: SouthernSun prefers companies that have strong internally generated discretionary cash flow and organic revenue growth
  • Management Capability: SouthernSun prefers management teams with measurable, transparent goals that are held accountable for performance. This applies to multiple levels of management from the CEO and CFO to less senior management
  • Niche Dominance: SouthernSun prefers companies that it believes exhibit competitive advantages through superior products, process controls and technologies

Markets Are Cyclical, Your Success Should Not Be

If history has taught us anything, it is that markets are cyclical. They rise and they fall, and just when investors convince themselves that something has changed, the pattern continues. Investors who understand this about the markets possess a distinct advantage.
