Dave Foord founded Foord Asset Management in 1981. Foord remains an independent, owner-controlled portfolio management business that focuses exclusively on investment management. For 30 years, Dave and the team at Foord have been delivering returns for their clients well in excess of market benchmarks. They have achieved this by consistently taking a long-term view and a contrarian approach when necessary.
FUND OBJECTIVES AND FOCUS
The objective of the fund is to provide investors with exposure to a portfolio of international equity and fixed interest securities, constructed with the purpose of maximising return with minimum risk. This is achieved through direct investment into the Foord International Trust, which aims to produce an annualised return over time in excess of 10% in US dollars, thereby expecting to outperform world equity indices. The fund provides South African investors with an opportunity to diversify their portfolios offshore and to hedge against rand depreciation.
