Scope assigns top fund ratings to three J O Hambro funds

Fund rating agency Scope Analysis has assigned its top ratings to three funds from UK-based investment house J O Hambro Capital Management (JOHCM): JOHCM Global Select Fund and JOHCM Global Opportunities Fund, both equities funds, and JOHCM Global Income Builder Fund, a multi-asset fund.

The top ratings of the three funds are primarily based on the respective teams’ high levels of experience. All three funds benefit from having diverse and complementary teams with a high proportion of advanced professional qualifications. Scope rates the experience and expertise of all three teams as "very good".

The top ratings also recognise the highly systematic and disciplined investment processes used to manage each fund. Scope considers these investment processes to be well structured and followed in a consistent manner.

All three funds have so far achieved convincing performance and record higher than average results over their peer groups.
