Investment Risks and Return Objectives

Our aim is for the Fund’s long term returns to exceed the Benchmark. However, the Fund will be constructed with limited reference to the Benchmark and therefore the returns of the Fund may significantly vary from the Benchmark returns. The Fund has a long term investment horizon.

Investment Strategy

The Fund invests in listed securities with a minimum exposure of 75% to Australian and NZ securities (including cash) and a maximum exposure of 25% to other international markets. The portfolio will typically consist of 20-40 stocks. The fund can hold up to 25% of the portfolio in cash.

Our strategy is to identify stocks with VoF attributes (value latency, operational performance, industry/strategic positioning & focused management). The portfolio can be divided into 5 broad categories:

  1. Stalwarts – sturdy, strong and generally larger companies with world class privileged market and competitive positions.
  2. Bond like equities – stocks with secure low-volatile dividends that can be grown and recapture inflationary effects over time.
  3. Asset plays – stocks with strong or improving balance sheets trading at discounts to net asset value or replacement value.
  4. Niche growth companies – growing companies with identifiable value propositions using traditional value metrics run by focused, prudent and experienced management.
  5. Turnarounds – sound businesses with good management in place and good balance sheets essential.
