2 Markets are rear-view mirror driving What has worked over the past 10 years: Currency: Canadian, Australian, Russian (a commodity trade) Real estate: Asia, Toronto, Sydney Emerging market stocks Bonds: Canadian, Australian, German

4 “As time goes on, I get more and more convinced that the right method in investment is to put fairly large sums into enterprises which one thinks one knows something about and in the management of which one thoroughly believes. It is a mistake to think that one limits one’s risk by spreading too much between enterprises about which one knows little and has no reason for special confidence… One’s knowledge and experience are definitely limited and there are seldom more than two or three enterprises at any given time in which I personally feel myself entitled to put full confidence.” John Maynard Keynes

5 Black Creek’s competitive advantages Structure: Privately owned-less pressure to conform Integrity: Invest own money in funds – interests aligned with investors Experience: 50 years’ combined experience, numerous performance awards – seen a lot, already made a lot of mistakes Conviction: Concentrated portfolios made up of distinct, proprietary global ideas Long-term investment horizon: this makes us different/contrarian

6 What we deliver Focused approach Tracking error Independent minded Bottoms up – company focused Long term outperformance Low turnover

7 Black Creek portfolios Flexible all-cap go-anywhere mandates allow the managers to avoid areas of high valuation risk 20-25 leading companies by market share – each a proprietary idea Fewer companies to follow = depth of research/competitive analysis = conviction in our choices High deviation from index results in longer term outperformance Disciplined BUY/SELL process – replace our least favourite idea with our newest idea

8 Things happen How the year felt – why we diversify

9 What worked – what didn’t
