Script

A long list of very exciting stocks that were invested in, one search stock is Assa Abloy.

Assa Abloy is the largest global supplier of intelligent lock and security solutions. You may not be familiar with the name of the company, but the chances are you use one of their products every single day. And in fact, if you've gone to London Terminal 2 or the The Shard you have gone through some of their Smart Gate technology.

But what's really exciting is that they are on the leading edge of wireless locking technology, a huge growth market. There are partnering with technology platforms, such as Google and Amazon as the smart lock becomes part of the Alexa-enabled home.

Assa Abloy is a great example of the type of company we like. A company that is a leader in a gross market, has a research advantage over its peers. And the strengthening its leadership through innovation.

And the other aspect for me personally, is my father used to be a locksmith so being invested in a company manufacturers locks is close to my heart.
