Fund Objective
To generate strong absolute returns from a selection of companies chosen from those listed on Australian markets. To procure a reasonably steady upward trend in the Unit price. Preservation of capital is an important objective of this Fund.
Fund Strategy
Aims to maximise absolute returns, not relative returns. Stock selection is made on an individual basis without major regard to sector or style descriptions such as value and growth. The investment process is primarily based on bottom up stock selection overlaid with top down macro themes. Typically 15 to 30 positions, including long and short. Derivatives will be used to manage portfolio equity and interest rate risk.
