Following three weeks of steady advances in November, stock markets took a breather, closing in the red for the week, against a backdrop of slower-than-expected U.S. job gains and a deal by Opec to reduce production of crude oil. While the S&P 500 Composite Index gained 2% month-over-month in November, it posted a -1% weekly loss at the close on Friday. The Nasdaq Composite Index, which recorded a 3.4% monthly gain in November, backed off in the first couple days of December to record an steep weekly loss of -2.7%.

For some insight into Black Creek’s style, I spoke with Director of Global Equities, Heather Pierce.

The Trimark Canadian Endeavour Fund invests in a concentrated portfolio of companies of any size. The big difference from its sister Trimark Global Endeavour Fund, apart from a different management team, is that while the global version has a true go-anywhere mandate, the Canadian offering must invest no less than 51% in Canada. And with a current big commitment to Canadian energy and financials, the managers are waiting patiently for the big payoff. Here’s a look at their strategy.
