In brief

CPR Invest – Food For Generations aims to get exposure to the multiple growth drivers throughout the global food value chain. It relies on a sustainable approach, thus offering an investment solution that contributes to the great challenge of feeding the world population and preserving resources.

Its objective is to outperform global equity markets over a long-term period (minimum of five years) by investing in international equities involved in the entire food value chain.

THE FOOD CHAIN THEME: TODAY’S CHALLENGE FOR TOMORROW

9.7 billion, that’s the number of human beings expected to be on earth in 2050 (Source : United Nations) all of whom will have to be fed. The combined effects of contemporary megatrends such as demographic growth, rise in incomes and urbanisation, will trigger powerful growth engines stimulating all players in the food value chain.
The challenge of feeding mankind is all the greater because the necessary resources are far from infinite. It calls for a commitment to resource preservation, respect for human rights, and generalisation of healthier food. A challenge as urgent as it is exciting. 



A UNIQUE APPROACH

  

To tap into the theme’s full growth potential, CPR Invest - Food For Generations invests in all food-related industries divided in 6 sectors. Such a multisector approach goes along with the implementation of environmental, social and governance criteria to exclude companies with the worst behaviours and controversies [1] .

AN ACTIVE, CONVICTION-BASED MANAGEMENT

A monthly committee identifies the companies to be excluded from the investment universe which goes down to about 550 stocks. The management team then combines a dynamic top-down sector allocation with a thorough bottom-up stock selection to build a portfolio of about 60 lines expressing the managers’ strongest convictions.
