Polar Capital Global Healthcare Trust PLC Snapshot

Group Strategy

Polar Capital’s goal is to become a leading specialist fund management company through a strategy of delivering to professional and institutional investors a range of fundamentally-driven investment products that deliver differentiated risk-adjusted returns over the long term. Our core philosophy is to focus on investment performance over and above the gathering of assets. We believe there is an alignment of interest between the investment managers we recruit, their focus on delivering superior returns and the interests of professional and institutional clients who are seeking differentiated investment products.

In addition to providing clients with superior investment products, we place great emphasis on providing high levels of customer service, operational integrity, independent risk control and compliance supervision. We believe such a combination will increasingly differentiate us in the marketplace and deliver attractive levels of long-term earnings and dividend growth to our shareholders.

We place great emphasis on providing and maintaining an entrepreneurial, vibrant, collegiate and transparent environment for our fund managers and our employees. We believe this will become an increasingly important factor in the attraction and retention of talented people.

Polar Capital will continue to maintain a strong and healthy balance sheet providing our clients with added comfort during turbulent times.
