Nomura Funds Ireland – Global Multi-Theme Equity Fund


A concentrated, unconstrained global equity fund that uses a top down “multi-thematic” approach to identify attractive high return growth stocks with an active split between long term and short term themes.

We aim to achieve excess returns by identifying investment themes that have high growth potential of more than 10% annually over the mid to long term. The investment team seeks to capitalize on growth drivers such as new technologies, trends, structural and societal changes. This is achieved by changing the allocation to investment themes and stock selection within these themes according to market conditions. The investment team takes a GARP (growth at reasonable price) approach when selecting individual stocks within these themes.
