The Family Businesses Fund

When times are tough, family businesses survive the best.

What is it?

A fund that invests in listed family-owned companies on a global scale.

After limiting the investment universe to companies that are owned and managed by families, who are planning to pass the control over to the future generations, we focus on selecting quality companies with attractive valuations, good fundamentals and features that differentiate them from their competitors (added value, distinctive traits, etc.), that is, businesses that are a good buying opportunity.

The fund does not follow any reference index: the distribution per sectors and regions depends on the securities chosen by the manager but, under no circumstances, on the index composition.

It is active management so we only invest in those companies that we truly believe will generate long-term good value.

Why invest?

The intrinsic values of family businesses (long term vision, loyalty, motivation, low debt leverage, etc) mean that they perform better during an economic crisis, a feature we seek to incorporate into our fund.

The Banca March Group’s experience and a long and successful track record as a family business and investor in other family businesses backs this up.
