Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is the LionGlobal Disruptive Innovation Fund?

The Fund is the first easily-accessible fund in Singapore that invests in disruptors globally. It invests in 100 stocks shortlisted from an investible universe comprising disruptive companies, i.e. disruptors. The stocks in the Fund’s portfolio are selected by a 5-factor screening process.

2. What does the LionGlobal Disruptive Innovation Fund invest in?

The Fund invests in 100 stocks shortlisted from an investible universe comprising disruptive companies, i.e. disruptors. Our analysts scour global research reports and disruption-related exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) for stock ideas to be included in the investable universe. Our investment strategy is based upon key disruptive themes. It aims to generate returns from the following market anomalies:

a) The investment community is warming up to the idea of disruption and how it affects investment portfolios and strategies. While valuations have reflected the different growth potential of the incumbents and the disruptors, investors have yet to fully allocate to the latter under the new economy as seen in the size of traditional ETFs which mirror traditional broad market indices such as MSCI or FTSE.

b) The other anomaly is the low representation of China in the MSCI AC World Index. The Fund invests in big China-listed companies who are already leaders in social media, e-commerce and other technological innovation.

3. What is the benchmark of the Fund?

There is currently no index available to represent the performance of disruptors, hence there is no appropriate benchmark.

4. What are “disruptors”?

Disruptors are disruptive companies that change the traditional way an industry operates, especially in new and effective ways. These companies may come from sectors such as robotics, electric vehicles, big data, internet of things, social media etc. Please see the fund factsheet here for more information.

5. What are examples of the disruptive themes in the investible universe that the Fund invests in?

The investment approach is to achieve a diversified portfolio, so the LionGlobal Disruptive Innovation Fund investment team participates in the market performance of a number of disruptive themes within the investible universe when constructing the portfolio. Examples of the disruptive themes the Fund invests in are:

  • augmented reality/virtual reality
  • electric vehicles/self-driving cars
  • big data/cloud computing
  • e-commerce
  • digital wallets/payments
  • internet of things/connectivity
  • material science/3D printing
  • media contents/social media/artificial intelligence
  • precision medicine/genome research
  • robotics/automation

The largest segment within the universe, which is e-commerce, has around 30 stocks.
