Meticulous, concentrated share selection enables the Rezco Value Trend Fund to be less correlated to the overall market and enables the fund to generate superior performance for investors. Our stock selection strategy focuses on international and domestic companies with strong earnings growth records, sustainable revenue streams and relatively low borrowings. By identifying companies which combine these features, Rezco is able to undertake in-depth research required to select new shares for the portfolio which can achieve a secure balance between risk and growth.
