  13. 13. Benefits of investing in ex-20 sector  Many portfolios are heavily concentrated in the top-20 so-called ‘blue chip’ stocks − There is considerable concentration risk − They are relatively homogenous in their investment attributes − They limited in the exposures they offer − They are very well known and researched − They are over-owned  A portfolio of ex-20 stocks complements these portfolios and mitigates some of the unappreciated concentration risk  The ex-20 market offers greater exposure to a broader range of stocks, sectors, themes and high returning opportunities  There is greater reward in applying superior skills and effort via active management
  14. 14. How BAEP invests in ex-20 stocks  Target high quality companies with strong long-term growth outlooks (so-called long duration companies)  Focused on earnings momentum and near-term earnings outperformance (versus market expectations)  Research-intensive process to gain differentiated insights based around company meetings, industry contact (competitors, suppliers, customers, regulators, etc) and other primary research  Makes use of macro-economic analysis and insights for opportunities and risks  Selective stock picking leading to high conviction portfolios that diverges significantly from the index
