Touchstone Focused Fund


The Fund seeks capital appreciation by investing in equity securities of companies of any size.

Investment Style

  • Flexible approach enables movement opportunistically across market caps and styles
  • Concentrated, high conviction portfolio typically holds 25 to 35 businesses
  • Strategy is centered on linking valuations with barriers to entry
  • Believes paying as little as possible for future value creation for businesses that generate or are capable of generating excess returns on capital is the key to consistent long-term performance
  • Process seeks investment candidates which have no future value creation implied in their current stock prices and earn above their cost of capital
A Word About Risk
The Fund invests in equities which are subject to market volatility and loss. The Fund invests in stocks of large-cap companies which may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges. The Fund invests in stocks of small- and mid-cap companies, which may be subject to more erratic market movements than stocks of larger, more established companies. The Fund invests in foreign and emerging market securities, and ADRs which carry the associated risks of economic and political instability, market liquidity, currency volatility and differences in accounting standards. The Fund invests in preferred stocks which are relegated below bonds for payment should the issuer be liquidated and can be called or redeemed prior to maturity, negatively impacting the stock's price when interest rates decline. The Fund may experience high portfolio turnover which may lead to increased fund expenses, lower investment returns, and high short-term capital gains taxable to shareholders. The Fund may focus its investments in certain industries within certain sectors which will have a greater impact on the Fund than a fund that does not focus its investments in a particular sector. The Fund is nondiversified, which means that it may invest a greater percentage of its assets in the securities of a limited number of issuers than a diversified fund and may be subject to greater risks. Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk. The advisor engages the sub-advisor to manage the Fund's portfolio; the sub-advisor's judgment may impact the Fund's performance.
