The Africa Consumer Fund is a long-only, 15 stock equity portfolio diversified across sectors. The aim of the Fund is to provide long-term investors with active equity exposure to African consumer- dominant companies within a sustainable investment framework at relatively low cost. The Fund employs a rules-based investment process led by bottom-up research and detailed company due diligence. Stock selection is driven by company level fundamental financial factors and Sustainable Capital's company sustainability assessments. The financial factors introduce a strong value bias into the portfolio construction process. The sustainability ratings act as a quality filter by aggressively up-weighting the highest quality companies (and vice versa).
