Schroder ISF* Global Disruption

Harness the power of disruptive growth

Our approach

Disruption is ubiquitous. It transforms the way we live, displaces existing markets, and pioneers new creations we didn’t even know we needed.

Today, disruptive forces are manifesting themselves faster than ever due to technological advancements, creating a rich and fast-growing universe of transformational companies with growth potential that has yet to be recognised.

By spotting early the companies that drive, enable or adapt to change, you can capitalise on these opportunities to build a portfolio at the forefront of a fast-changing world.


Schroder ISF Global Disruption

A finely-tuned, global equity fund targeting long-term capital growth by investing in innovative companies that are changing the industries in which they operate or adapting to the change.

Disruption is everywhere and therefore so are the investment opportunities. We invest wherever we see the best opportunities, whether it’s defined by sector, country or market cap.

Alex Tedder
Head of Global and Thematic Equities

“We feel very strongly that now is the time to be thinking differently about allocating assets perhaps away from traditional equity benchmarks towards uncorrelated long-term themes. Disruption is a fact of life in business and our daily lives – it drives innovation, which in turn creates more disruption. By focussing on disruptive growth, we think we can add a lot of value for investors over time.”

Risk considerations

*Schroder International Selection Fund is referred to as Schroder ISF.

  • Counterparty risk: The fund may have contractual agreements with counterparties. If a counterparty is unable to fulfil their obligations, the sum that they owe to the fund may be lost in part or in whole.
  • Currency risk: The hedging of the share class may not be fully effective and residual currency exposure may remain. The cost associated with hedging may impact performance and potential gains may be more limited than for unhedged share classes.
  • Derivatives risk – efficient portfolio management: Derivatives may be used to manage the portfolio efficiently. A derivative may not perform as expected, may create losses greater than the cost of the derivative and may result in losses to the fund.
  • IBOR risk: The transition of the financial markets away from the use of interbank offered rates (IBORs) to alternative reference rates may impact the valuation of certain holdings and disrupt liquidity in certain instruments. This may impact the investment performance of the fund.
  • Liquidity risk: In difficult market conditions, the fund may not be able to sell a security for full value or at all. This could affect performance and could cause the fund to defer or suspend redemptions of its shares.
  • Market risk: The value of investments can go up and down and an investor may not get back the amount initially invested.
  • Operational risk: Operational processes, including those related to the safekeeping of assets, may fail. This may result in losses to the fund.
  • Performance risk: Investment objectives express an intended result but there is no guarantee that such a result will be achieved. Depending on market conditions and the macro economic environment, investment objectives may become more difficult to achieve.
