Geiger Counter is intended to deliver capital growth from a diversified global portfolio of uranium stocks. Geiger Counter aims to provide investors with capital growth by investing in a portfolio of securities of companies involved in the exploration, development and production of energy, as well as related service companies. Its main focus is the uranium sector, but up to 30% of assets can be invested in other resource-related companies. These include, but are not limited to, shares, convertibles, fixed-income securities and warrants.
Geiger Counter does not have a formal benchmark and is not managed with the aim of providing outperformance relative to an index. Instead, the portfolio is managed to make money for investors, with the managers selecting the securities that they believe will provide the best returns, relative to their risk, over the longer term. Although the managers consider uranium to benefit from long-term structural growth drivers, the portfolio is focused on securities that the manager has identified as being undervalued by the market. The expectation is that such securities will benefit from a re-rating over time, and therefore provide the scope for a capital appreciation beyond what the market expects. Geiger Counter has a global remit but its portfolio tends to be biased towards North American and Australian-listed equities.
The fund’s website can be found here, and also we have written a note which seeks to explain the workings of the fund –
- “Nuclear exposure”, published March 2019, looks at CGL’s portfolio which is focused on smaller uranium companies so a rebound in uranium stocks would make up for recent underperformance
