Schroder ISF* Global RecoveryInvesting in value equity and equity-related securities of companies
We aim to deliver growth by investing in out-of-favour global stocks that have the potential to recover. We focus on a true deep-value strategy which means that we invest in undervalued, unloved companies we expect to bounce back. The lower price paid for the shares means if a company does recover the returns can be significant.
Schroder ISF Global Recovery aims to provide capital growth by investing in value equity and equity-related securities of companies that have suffered a major profit or share price setback, but which appear to have good long-term prospects and the potential for significant share price gains.

- Positioned to benefit from strong recovery opportunities
- A true contrarian approach for greater potential returns
- Flexibility to establish meaningful positions even in small companies
- A core style that invests in a broad range of companies
Seeks businesses with long-term value potential believed not to be reflected in the share price
Taking a contrarian approach, we look for ideas among unloved businesses and industries, aiming to buy when many others are selling and selling when they want to buy. This is easy to say, but not so easy to do. It might be difficult to hold onto them in the short term but pick the right companies, with real recovery potential and stick with them for long enough, and you have the potential to generate much higher returns than the broader market.
A focus on individual businesses rather than broad macro themes
Investors are frequently pre-occupied with macro themes; the positive demographics of a certain region, for example. But even when themes are correct, there is potential to deliver strong returns by digging deeper.
We have the capacity and capital to make nimble, pragmatic decisions
The most attractive recovery investments are frequently found when a company’s share price has fallen dramatically, with an accompanying dramatic fall in its market capitalisation. The freedom to exploit this is essential for recovery investors.

- 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 fund may lose value as a result of movements in foreign exchange rates.
- 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.
- Emerging markets & frontier risk: Emerging markets, and especially frontier markets, generally carry greater political, legal, counterparty, operational and liquidity risk than developed markets.
- Higher volatility risk: The price of this fund may be volatile as it may take higher risks in search of higher rewards.
- 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.

- Operational risk: Operational processes, including those related to the safekeeping of assets, may fail. This may result in losses to the fund.

- Stock connect risk: The fund may be investing in China "A" shares via the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect which may involve clearing and settlement, regulatory, operational and counterparty risks.
