Portfolio Holdings & Characteristics

HoldingSector% of Net Assets
NVIDIA Corporation
NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA) sells semiconductors, systems, and software for accelerated computing, gaming, and generative AI (GenAI).
Computing demand has been doubling every one to two years, driven by electrification, digitization and the recent advancements in AI, yet supply growth has decelerated dramatically due to the slowdown in Moore's law. NVIDIA’s accelerated computing architecture enables continued growth in supply of computing through parallelization. We are at the tipping point of a new era in computing with NVIDIA at its epicenter as GenAI adoption grows. Given its leading market share in gaming, data centers, and autonomous machines, we believe NVIDIA can grow rapidly for years to come.
Information Technology7.1%
Tesla, Inc.
Tesla, Inc. (TSLA) manufactures electric vehicles, including a luxury sedan and CUV (S/X), a mid-sized luxury sedan and hatchback (3/Y), and pickup and semi-trucks. It is also ramping up internal battery cell production, energy solutions, and software offerings such as full self-driving and insurance.
We expect Tesla will continue to grow its automotive business rapidly through international production capacity and product expansion. We believe Tesla's vertical integration, technology innovation, brand, profitability, and growing supplier support offer unique and durable growth opportunities that are hard to replicate. In addition, Tesla's energy and software expertise is broadening the industrial opportunity to large and profitable revenue avenues that were previously locked in the legacy vehicle architecture, such as autonomous, insurance, and other AI use cases.
Consumer Discretionary5.5%
Hyatt Hotels Corporation
Hyatt Hotels Corporation (H) is a global hospitality company with 1,341 Hyatt-branded properties representing 323,405 keys. The company's brands include Park Hyatt, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, Hyatt, Hyatt Place, and Hyatt Summerfield Suite. It derives 85% of EBITDA from fees and 15% from owned assets.
We believe Hyatt has a significant opportunity to market more of its brands globally, given an undersupply of rooms across the world. Compared to peers, Hyatt has the least global brand penetration and the largest pipeline of unit growth. We believe its asset light strategy and strong balance sheet, coupled with continued robust pricing for hotel assets, give Hyatt an opportunity to generate strong growth in earnings and cash flow. The resulting increased cash could be used for buybacks and further tuck-in acquisitions and could result in multiple expansion over time.
Consumer Discretionary5.1%
Interactive Brokers Group, Inc.
Interactive Brokers Group, Inc. (IBKR) is an automated global electronic broker. It provides low-cost execution, clearing, and settlement of trades for retail and institutional customers across multiple asset classes and currencies.
Interactive Brokers is gaining share because of its advanced technology, quality of execution, and low trading costs. We expect the company to continue growing rapidly through international expansion and as domestic RIAs depart traditional institutions to launch their own firms. The company's competitive advantage comes from automation through best-in-class software engineering, which enables it to offer industry-low costs to customers. Founder and Chairman Thomas Peterffy is well-regarded and is the company's largest shareholder.

Arch Capital Group Ltd.
Arch Capital Group Ltd. (ACGL) is a Bermuda-based insurance company providing property & casualty insurance, reinsurance, and mortgage insurance.
Arch is led by an experienced management team with a successful track record across insurance cycles. The company excels at underwriting specialized policies and can nimbly shift its business mix to target the most profitable lines as market conditions change. The company operates in a large global market and is currently benefiting from favorable pricing trends across many of its product lines. In our view, management has demonstrated strong underwriting discipline and capital stewardship, allowing Arch to maintain industry-leading returns on equity with less volatility.

Red Rock Resorts, Inc.
Red Rock Resorts, Inc. (RRR) owns and operates 20 local casinos in Las Vegas and is in the planning stages of developing and managing another tribal casino in California. It also controls seven gaming-entitled sites consisting of almost 600 acres in Las Vegas and 30 acres in Reno.
The company operates in the improving Las Vegas locals gaming market, which is now back to previous peak levels. We think the market is attractive, given favorable fundamentals including population growth 2.7 times the national average and $20 billion of development projects that are either in the planning stages or under development. The market also offers the lowest tax rate in the U.S., with limitations on the development of new casinos in the region. Red Rock also has the option to develop or sell its owned acreage for gaming in Las Vegas and Reno.

Shopify Inc.
Shopify Inc. (SHOP) is a cloud-based software provider offering an operating system for multi-channel commerce. The company serves over two million merchants that processed $235 billion of gross merchandise volume in 2023. Shopify is the second largest e-commerce player in the U.S.
Shopify has developed a scalable platform that offers an end-to-end commerce solution to merchants of all sizes, including merchants that sell offline, international merchants, and B2B merchants. Shopify’s aggregate scale, innovation, and ecosystem of partners enable merchants to take payments, receive loans, and easily sell internationally. With less than 2% share of $20 trillion in global commerce, it has a long runway for growth.

On Holding AG
On Holding AG (ONON), a Swiss premium performance sports brand specializing in footwear (shoes generate roughly 95% of revenue), is one of the fastest-growing scaled athletic wear companies in the world. The company was founded in 2010 and continues to gain market share in the athletic footwear category. 
On is an innovative lifestyle brand blending technical performance and fashion/lifestyle elements to deliver a lineup of footwear, apparel, and accessories. We believe On is still early in its lifecycle as it expands its product line and distribution network. On benefits from strong brand loyalty, its commitment to sustainability, a focus on innovation, and a highly complementary, multi-channel distribution strategy. The sportswear market is a $355-billion-and-growing opportunity, of which On has a small share, implying a long growth runway.
Consumer Discretionary4.2%
MSCI Inc.
MSCI Inc. (MSCI) provides investment decision support tools to global investment institutions.
We believe MSCI, the de facto standard for measuring global market performance, is positioned to benefit from the continuing development of emerging markets, passive investing, ESG, and the growth of global financial assets. We believe the company's indices remain the global standard for cross-border investing and will continue to be selected by institutions when issuing new mandates. Both the index and multi-asset portfolio and risk analytics products are mission-critical and deeply embedded in client workflows.
Financials4.2%
CoStar Group, Inc.
CoStar Group, Inc. (CSGP) is the leading provider of information and marketing services to the commercial real estate industry.
CoStar has built a proprietary database through data collection over a 20-year period, creating high barriers to entry. We think CoStar's suite should grow at mid-teens rates, and we believe its Loopnet marketing platform can grow even faster. Its Apartments.com platform is the dominant multi-family internet listing service and should grow revenue by more than 20%. CoStar is starting to expand into residential, creating additional significant growth opportunities. Its balance sheet and cash generation create M&A optionality.
