Investing in Innovation Without the Drama:​

Meet the Grandfather of Innovation Funds

Available at Merrill Lynch

When we launched the Global Innovators Fund 23 years ago, we recognized that while innovative companies can outperform, they often trade at a premium. Recognizing that the price you pay can be as important as the stocks you buy, we sought a process that identified not just innovative companies, but innovative companies trading at reasonable prices.

Our results speak for themselves…see the performance table below.
