About United Global Innovation Fund (the “Fund”)

The United Global Innovation Fund (the “Fund”) aims to achieve long term capital appreciation by investing in companies that are believed to be innovative and beneficiaries of innovation and trend.


What is innovation?


Innovation transcends beyond technology


Contrary to the common belief that innovation primarily occurs in the technology or healthcare sectors, it extends across various industries as companies pursue novel processes, technologies, products or business models to gain a competitive edge.

The Fund is strategically positioned to capitalise on sector-wide growth opportunities globally, with companies in its portfolio experiencing exponential growth since inception.

Why Invest

Why invest in the United Global Innovation Fund?


1) Invest in disruptive innovators and beneficiaries of durable trends

The Fund invests in companies that are either disruptive innovators or beneficiaries of durable trends in our rapidly changing world. By seeking growth opportunities from structural changes across industries, it strives to capture performance from multiple tr ends in a single, diverse portfolio.

  • Screening: We narrow down the investment universe from 2000 – 3000 companies based on our philosophy and process. Only investments with a minimum average daily value (ADV) of US$20 million pass the initial screen.
  • Research flexibility & collaboration: Our fund managers have the flexibility to research and contribute ideas on innovative companies in collaboration with Wellington’s industry experts, who are also known as Global Industry Analysts.
  • Fundamental analysis: We subject 100 – 150 stocks to our fundamental framework and model.
  • Portfolio construction: The final portfolio comprises 35 – 65 stocks.


2) Strategic portfolio positioning

We seek companies that control their own future by driving growth through innovation or having exposure to key secular trends.


3) Managed by global experts1
