ZIG Fund Description

ZIG is an actively-managed portfolio of equity securities issued by US-listed companies that exhibit strong fundamentals and value characteristics.

ZIG Factset Analytics Insight

ZIG seeks capital appreciation by actively investing in US companies believed to be undervalued and fundamentally strong. The selection process follows a methodology using a valuation metric to find takeover targets - The Acquirer’s Multiple. It begins with identifying the eligible value stocks by assessing and ranking companies based on their assets, earnings, and cash flows. To remove the overvalued, potential securities are further evaluated for fraudulent financial reporting and financial distress and are examined for a margin of safety in three ways: (a) a wide discount to a conservative valuation, (b) a strong, liquid balance sheet, and (c) a robust business capable of generating free cash flows. The remaining constituents will then undergo a forensic-accounting due diligence review of their financial statements, selecting 30 stocks from the largest 25% of the investable universe and finalizing the fund. Prior to December 7, 2021, the fund tracked The Acquirer's Index, with a similar strategy.

These companies may be more resilient to disruptions arising from ESG events.
