International Development Fund
Develop long-term growth by capital appreciation by investing in companies in international capital markets; IDF objectives are not guaranteed.
Glazier International Development Fund (GIDF) is a specialized portfolio of diversified assets and companies. Despite an emphasis on developed markets and companies, Glazier takes on a bottom-up approach to analyzing and valuation for managed risk through risk-adjusted, real time returns.
Our international development investment philosophy stems from seeking value at a holistic, long-term outlook of each portfolio. Our team has history and foundations in the European and APAC regions and with strong networks in other developed countries. We have a common sense approach to enabling consistently earning companies, emerging/enterprise companies, and companies growing their basic value to become Glazier partners for mutual growth and development.
Our GIDF portfolios reflect batches of enterprising businesses and initiatives that are tied to the growth of international development asset classes aligned with our securities trading operations. GIDF works on a firm-by-firm basis to ensure the management of volatility.
At a granular level, we manage what we can measure and that means our portfolios consist of companies whose basic value is economically feasible, measurable, and monitored - from earnings power to net assets. We analyze for sustainable growth in company dividends, profitability, and valuation. We have a bias for enterprising companies that are innovating and becoming market leaders in their domain expertise.
By merging both quantitative metrics with the qualitative prowess of our team’s macro and micro economic outlook of each country’s contextual value: we are able to create value in the investment process.
As entrepreneurs and proponents of entrepreneurs, we look beyond the books and numbers. Each portfolio comes with a hands-on approach to statistical modeling and interpersonal relations with the industry leaders we support. Glazier has a pulse on each economy, sector, company, and its executive team’s core competences. Our focus is on individual and personalized security and risk management of each selected company that builds each portfolio.

Investors are solely responsible for their investment with one or more of Glazier funds. Each individual should carefully review all fund prospectuses, summaries, reports, statements, and policies; use of a financial professional or asset manager is also encouraged.
Emerging Market Funds are best suited for contrarian investors that can withstand volatility and risk related to political instability, currency fluctuation, commodities price variation, international finance securities regulations, periodic or temporary states of illiquidity, and other risks related to developing markets.
