• Brickability—leading supplier to UK construction companies and landmark architectural projects

• Gym Group—pioneer of affordable, low-cost, no-contract, 24/7 gyms across the UK

We have also found what we believe to be a select group of compelling companies from across Continental Europe with specialty products offered globally, trading at attractive valuations, including:

• MIPS—global provider of patented technology to protect against brain injury in sports and work helmets (based in Sweden)

• Raisio – “healthy food” company with cholesterol lowering Benecol as key brand (based in Finland)

• Varta – global provider of specialty batteries, notably for hearing aids and next generation ear buds for cell phones; Varta batteries landed on the moon with Neil Armstrong (based in Germany)

All of these companies look well set to benefit in 2020. We factor in the uncertainties and risks, both positive and negative, but we believe that the sound course is to discover companies that can win in a wide variety of circumstances.  We feel we have a portfolio of such special companies today.
