Five years running…PAN-Tribal Global Equity Fund maintains the highest Zenith rating

We’re delighted to announce that the PAN-Tribal Global Equity Fund has once again maintained the highest available rating from Zenith Investment Partners – Highly Recommended.

Despite one of the most competitive fields in the investment landscape, based on the number of managers and strategies available to investors, the PAN-Tribal Global Equity Fund (the Fund) continues to stand out.

The Fund provides a style-neutral, currency-unhedged and benchmark unaware international equities exposure. Despite challenging short-term performance driven by volatile equity markets, Zenith retains its conviction in the Fund. According to its report, this conviction “is underpinned by the high regard we hold for the depth and quality of the investment team”.

Commenting on this achievement, PAN-Tribal CEO Colin Woods said: “Despite the challenges posed to the Fund by volatile markets in 2022, especially its exposure to China, the Fund has been well supported by the advisory community.”

“That the Fund has retained its Highly Recommended rating for the fifth year is a great result for the advisers and investors who have supported the Fund over the past six years and is a testament to the quality of both Davis Advisors’ investment team and investment process.”

Some key highlights from the Zenith report include…

On the Fund overall

“Despite challenging short-term performance, Zenith retains conviction in the Fund, which is underpinned by the high regard we hold for the depth and quality of the investment team. In addition, we view Davis Advisors’ investment process positively, noting its successful implementation since 1969.”

“Zenith has a favourable view of the arrangement between Davis Advisors and PAN-Tribal, believing that it pairs a solid investment manager with a distribution partner that has a strong footprint in the domestic market.”

On the investment process

“Davis Advisors favours market leaders with strong balance sheets, opportunistic investments and contrarian investments, expecting that the majority of the Fund’s performance to be driven by the investment team’s stock selection skills. Zenith believes the security selection process adopted by Davis Advisors is robust and detailed.”

“The portfolio construction process is primarily driven by the fundamental analysis conducted by the investment team. The primary determinants of a stock’s weighting in the Fund are the magnitude of the discount to fair value and the level of analyst conviction. Zenith is comfortable with Davis Advisors’ portfolio construction approach, which ensures a strong connection between the output of its security selection process and the resultant weight of the stocks in the portfolio.”

On the investment team

“Zenith has met with several members of the investment team and considers them to be high calibre, which we view as a key competitive advantage for the Fund.”

“Zenith rates [Danton] Goei as a strong investor, highlighted by his impressive long-term track record. In addition, we note that Goei has been involved in the management of the Fund since its inception, which we view positively.”
