A Global perspective on investment

Our approach, which differs from the majority of fund managers, means we are not constrained to one geographic region, currency, or industry sector. We are instead free to look for trends that are occurring at a global level and which offer investment opportunities.

This philosophy has led us to the creation of a range of investment funds that are unusual, interesting and (importantly in this rapidly changing world) flexible. As you will see, our performance speaks for itself.

A logical approach to managing funds

Dominion’s approach to creating a fund is one of the things that make us unique - we never start by trying to create a fund.
We start by looking for opportunities.

We are constantly analysing what is happening in the world at a global, economic and social level, identifying trends that we believe are sustainable and predictable. Once we identify a trend, we then investigate what investment opportunities it presents, and evaluate whether its long-term potential returns seem attractive. Our final step is to create an investment strategy that exploits the opportunity in an efficient way, designed to maximize returns with the greatest level of security and liquidity.

We refer to this process as See Think Invest™ and it is a concept that is at the core of Dominion’s every investment decision.

  • Today, Starbucks is recognized in many countries as a luxury brand, and India is its fastest growing market with over 1,000 of the brand’s coffee shops. Dominion has been investing in Starbucks since 2007 through its Luxury Fund, not only because it’s a great company, but because it’s an aspirational brand with mass appeal, which lies at the heart of the Luxury trend. Since 2007, Starbucks has grown by almost 600% (Source: Bloomberg.)
  • Today, Apple dominates the high-end smartphone market and captures more than 90% of all smartphone profits globally. Throughout 2015 and into 2016 Apple announced the largest quarterly earnings ever seen for a single company. This achievement was, in part, attributable to its phenomenal growth of sales in China. Dominion’s Global Trends Funds started investing in Apple in 2007. At the time the share price was $20. Since then, it has increased by 600%.
  • Dominion identified Inditex, the Spanish company behind brands such as Zara, as an early pioneer of this trend towards ‘fast fashion’. By leveraging new design, supply chain technology, and immediate customer feedback, the company is able to instantly adapt to changing customer demands, delivering constantly evolving designs every few weeks and aimed at a rapidly growing middle class. Inditex changed the fashion industry. Dominion started investing in Inditex in 2007, since then it has grown by 410%.
  • ARM Holdings, a Cambridge based UK company, designs and manufacture 93% of computer chips used in all smartphones worldwide and is one of the leading lights in the next stage of connectivity – the Internet of Things – which seeks to connect just about everything you can imagine. Since 2007 ARM’s share price has appreciated by nearly 500%. Dominion’s Ecommerce Fund has invested in ARM Holdings since inception.
  • Netflix began its streaming movie service in 2007. Since then it has grown into one of the largest providers of video and TV on demand worldwide with more than 74 millions subscribers and now offers its services in more than 100 countries. It has also become an award-wining creator of content in its own right. Since 2007 the share price has grown by 2,800%. Dominion holds Netflix in its Ecommerce Fund.
  • Dominion chose to invest in Facebook through our Ecommerce Fund, and as a result, has done extremely well. By the end of 2015, Facebook had accomplished a number of feats, not least of which was to expand its user base to include about 20% of the world’s population, and 88% of all Millennials. The results so far have been impressive: Facebook has quadrupled its revenue since its IPO and its share price has risen by almost 170%.
  • Dominion identified the water trend as an area which not only presented attractive investment opportunities today, but would continue to do so well into the future. Dominion invests in a number of companies like Xylem, which has outperformed the Dow Jones index over the past 5 years and Halma, which has appreciated by more than 300% in the past 10 years.
  • Dominion’s Managed Fund invest in a number of Agriculture companies who are focused on feeding an ever increasing population and meeting its desire for higher protein diets. One example of which is Tyson Foods, which grows and exports meat. Its share price has grown by over 200% over the past 5 years
  • Dominion recognized that shifts in the global workforce and the efficiency of modern robotics, would dramatically alter various industries. As a result, we picked a number of well-positioned robotics companies to exploit this trend. Today, whole factories in China (and elsewhere) are staffed exclusively by robots. As a result, it is not surprising that KUKA robotics, one of Dominion’s major exposures to the trend, has seen its share price rise by 600% since 2010!

Clear objectives, informed investments

Clear objectives,
informed investments

Our first goal in creating the funds that we manage is simple: to create a fund that we want to invest in ourselves. In fact, the owners and directors of Dominion have been the first investors in every fund that we have ever launched. That is the strength of our conviction.

Our second goal is even more fundamental; we look to create investments that are simple to understand and follow a logical strategy. In doing so, we seek to help our investors make better and more informed decisions about whether our funds are right for them.
