The Square Mile research team has taken the decision to remove the ratings of the Veritas Global Focus and the Veritas Global Equity Income funds. Having rated the funds since the launch of our Academy, ongoing access to the managers has proved challenging. Whilst we fully respect the firm's decision to limit the amount of fund managers time spent on non-investment related activity, this has unfortunately meant that we do not believe that we are able to fulfil our ongoing qualitative due diligence requirements.
