Combining its macroeconomic expertise and global stock selection capabilities into a single solution for investors, Scout Investments (Scout) has introduced the Scout Global Equity Fund (SCGLX), an all-cap global core equity portfolio of high conviction investment ideas.

The no-load Scout Global Equity Fund showcases Scout’s experience in identifying growth-producing companies in the US and abroad. Lead portfolio manager and chief investment officer Bill Greiner (pictured) incorporates his comprehensive top-down outlook of the global markets to determine the fund’s domestic and international mix and how it is allocated across market capitalisations.

The portfolio is composed of focused "sleeves" of select companies that reflect Scout’s existing domestic and international strategies. These high-quality, high-conviction investments strive to take advantage of prevailing conditions and worldwide themes.

"The Scout Global Equity Fund combines the strengths and stock selection capabilities of our five equity teams to offer investors a diversified global solution," says Greiner. "The long-term potential we see worldwide and the interest from investors prompted us to develop a global all-cap strategy that leverages our equity resources."

Andy Iseman, Scout’s chief executive officer, says: "We believe the fund is an attractive investment option for intermediary and institutional investors who are looking to allocate toward global core equities and participate in a high-quality, risk-managed portfolio that encompasses Scout’s expertise in multiple equity asset classes."
