Best of the Best 2023: Best International Shares Funds
Navigating the plunging global sharemarkets as interest rates and inflation rise is a test for active investment managers.
This year's winner, GQG Partners with its Global Equity Fund, is steering its way through the turmoil with great skill.
GQG's portfolio manager Brian Kersmanc says the fund goes beyond the usual annual reports and company presentations.
It uses research analysts as well as different perspectives from non-traditional experts, such as specialised accountants, credit analysts and investigative journalists, who interview connected parties and academics to dig deeper into the issues confronting a company.
These experts can help identify any blind spots that traditional research analysts are missing. GQG looks at quality measures that highlight the sustainability and durability of a company's competitive advantage.
