The fund’s investing philosophy will cover climate sustainability among other megatrends.

These innovation-driven, secular growth trends that can influence humans’ daily lives include 24/7 information and entertainment, automation, lifestyle improvements, and climate sustainability.
“We are focused on change,” said Black. “We have identified several secular megatrends that are changing the world and are investing in the companies we believe are best positioned to capitalize on those trends. We’re excited to offer our investors the opportunity to be part of the significant potential we see in the market.”
M/s Black and Kalis have both held portfolio management and investment research positions at some of the most reputable firms in asset management. Between them, they have more than 50 years of experience managing portfolios for clients.
“We use our deep research experience to look for companies that are potentially worth multiples of their current prices,” commented Black.
Future Fund: Active confidence
Black and Kalis do not need for their investment strategies to mirror any indices as they have confidence in their active management, quality of research, and strong convictions.
This is why the new fund will disclose its investment positions and process, as well as report any changes daily.
Investors, therefore, have a clear view of the holdings of the fund.
According to the FINANCIAL ADVISOR, the Future Fund could also use “opportunistic hedging” and short companies which are overvalued relative to their fundamentals or are going to be disrupted by the emerging secular trends.
However, shorting would be limited to 10% of the fund’s portfolio.
