Capturing the long term potential from the best Family-owned businesses

Date and time: Thursday, April 15, 2021, 4:30 PM (SGT)

A certificate of attendance will be provided for those who attended the entire session.

Carmignac Gestion being a family-owned business itself, it felt natural to explore the field of listed family-owned businesses. Having done that and identified clear proofs of good performance over the long term, we launched the first fund investing in family-owned businesses globally, Carmignac Family Governed, in May 2019. Mark Denham, who is Co-PM, will talk about the benefits of investing in family businesses while applying an additional filter, based on a thorough review of corporate governance.

Key Highlights

  • Inspired by Carmignac Gestion’s own features and history, we launched a strategy investing in family companies at the end of May 2019.
  • Entrepreneurial spirit, Human-driven insight and Active commitment are qualities that not only, in our view, define independence, but are also key success factors for most family-owned businesses.
  • Mark will discuss the way we try to capture the positive effects of family companies, picking the most attractive ideas from our proprietary investment universe resulting from a quantitative expertise.
  • He will also explain why we put so much emphasis on the “G” of ESG -Governance, as a major determinant of family companies’ success.
