Katko Fund

Katko Fund mainly invests in a concentrated number of shares of companies listed in Europe.
The Katko Capital investment team relies on highly demanding criteria to select companies for the Fund. This should ensure that the companies the Fund invests in enjoy most of the following high-quality characteristics:

- Strong corporate governance
- Sustainable and clearly-defined competitive advantage
- Proven ability to grow sales and profits through a full economic cycle
- Self-funded growth
- High and sustainable gross margin
- High and sustainable return on invested capital
- Low financial gearing
- Attractive valuation

The application of these criteria should result in a portfolio of around 20 holdings.
The Katko Capital investment team aims at the lowest possible portfolio turnover. We neither use any derivatives, nor sell short, nor use any leverage in the portfolio. Although the Fund is not managed with reference to any benchmark, our aim is to outperform european equity markets over the long-term.


Investors should be aware that the price of shares can fall as well as rise and investors may not receive back their full investment. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Before any investment in Katko Fund we strongly recommend potential investors to read the Katko Fund prospectus and Key Investor Information Document, with a particular attention on the risk factors, including but not limited to political risk, market risk and liquidity risk. Both documents are available below.
