American Growth Fund - May 2022

Factsheet: May 2022


The Fund's objective is to achieve optimal long-term capital growth through active management of a portfolio of large-capitalisation stocks based primarily in North America.

The investment strategy is based on fundamental analysis. The stock selection process is based in particular on the activities of the companies, their governance, financial structure and development perspectives. The fund aims above all to identify companies with dominant positions, with a significant reinvestment capacity and low levels of gearing.

The recommended investment period is 5 years. The reference currency is the US Dollar.


US markets settled down after having experienced one of their worst month in history in April. Over the relevant period (27.04.2022 to 01.06.2022), the S&P 500 lost -1.98%, the Nasdaq 100 -3.50%, and the Dow Jones Industrials -1.47%.

Under the hood, things were much volatile, with the Oil & Gas Exploration Sector up 19.70% while the General Merchandise Stores Sector (think Target, as discussed before) down -18.12%.
