The DK JDS Resource Fund provides investors with a professionally managed resource portfolio concentrated on owning the assets and management teams that industry leaders such as JDS own themselves.
Natural resource investing is an inefficient market and Deans Knight and the JDS Group bring their complementary expertise in active management and resource development, targeting long-term wealth creation by owning natural resource businesses.
The average investor has very little exposure to resources as their weighting in major markets has declined during the last decade of commodity bear markets and technology dominance. The Resource Strategy is designed to provide investors access to the “staples of life” by investing in real businesses with best-in-class management.
With an unwavering commitment and focus on the long term, we believe our unique strategy will provide superior wealth creation. Hand in hand with our purpose-driven investment philosophy, we are equally passionate about resource businesses, as we are about the future prosperity of our great nation.
Identifying superior assets and growth profiles. We will not while participate in low-quality or promotional stocks.
Conducting in-depth research and buying meaningful stakes in businesses where we have the highest degree of confidence. This results in owning less than 30 companies, by comparison, indexes, ETFs and competitor funds own hundreds of investments.
Providing investors with access to a broad basket of resources. The Fund has a flexible mandate and does not track any index or benchmark which allows the manager to respond opportunistically to the benefit of our clients.
“We think like a business owner, not a paper trader”.
