CFP Castlefield Sustainable UK Smaller Companies Fund

The investment philosophy of the CFP Castlefield Sustainable UK Smaller Companies Fund is to  harness the long term growth potential of sustainable UK smaller businesses, by investing in well-managed UK smaller companies that are financially sound, have a distinct and sustainable competitive advantage and are capable of long term growth.

The fund focuses on investing in shares within a portfolio of typically 30 to 50 listed or AIM-quoted UK smaller company shares to achieve capital growth over a period in excess of five years.

To embed proper consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, holdings are selected using our own B.E.S.T investment methodology and subject to our main Screening Policy. This as part of our investment selection process, to ensure that each investment is sustainable.

Aligned to our values

The fund’s approach is firmly rooted in investing for at least five years and based on our own analysis of company fundamentals, where we aim to identify those firms that can grow their profits - either by accessing a growing niche within a wider industry, having access to superior pricing from technological or market dynamics or by owning assets which we feel are fundamentally undervalued.

The investment process involves a thorough appraisal of a company’s management, a detailed financial review and an assessment of its market position and the competitive environment. We also look to invest in companies that can demonstrate a high level of employee engagement and where employees are encouraged to become shareholders.
