Zenith initiates coverage of the Langdon Global Small Caps strategy with ‘Recommended’ Rating

Following a one-year track-record milestone in which The Langdon Global Smaller Companies Fund delivered 22.3% net of fees and taxes (outperforming its benchmark, the MSCI World Small Cap Index, by 9.9%), the strategy has received a ‘Recommended’ rating from Zenith Investment Partners.

It is the inaugural rating of the strategy by the leading Australian research house.

Langdon Equity Partners Founder and Lead Investor, Greg Dean, commented:

“On behalf of our team, I would like to thank Zenith for their thorough and skilled research and ultimately their overarching confidence in our Global Small Caps strategy.”

“This rating underscores the important role an allocation to a portfolio of high-quality cash generative small companies can play in investment portfolios and is a testament to our team which has been working hard to deliver the outcomes our clients expect since we launched.”

The strength of the Langdon investment team was noted in the Zenith Report.

“Zenith holds a strong opinion of (Greg) Dean, who we believe is a highly capable investor with a strong long-term investment track record. In addition, the majority of the team previously worked with each other, which we view positively as it ensures continuity of investment philosophy and process, as well as strong cultural cohesion.

“Furthermore, Zenith holds a favourable view of Langdon’s arrangement with Pinnacle (Pinnacle Investment Management Group) as we believe it provides business stability and allows the investment team to focus on research and portfolio management efforts.”

The Langdon Global Smaller Companies Fund is a concentrated, high conviction portfolio of 25-40 companies. The team seeks to invest in high-quality fundamentally undervalued cash generative smaller companies, run by talented and long-term oriented teams.

The Fund aims to outperform the MSCI World Small Cap Index over the long term.

Langdon Equity Partners is a specialist global small cap fund manager, based in Toronto, Canada. The boutique was launched in 2021, in partnership with Pinnacle Investment Management Group.
