The Investment

Units in a unit trust - the Cooper Investors Family & Founder Fund (the "Fund")

Minimum Initial Investment

This fund is currently closed to new and additional investments.


Cooper Investors Pty Limited ("CI" or the "Manager")


National Australia Bank Limited


MSCI AC World net dividends in Australian Dollars.


Income distributions will normally be paid half-yearly as at 31 December and 30 June (although the Manager has the discretion to distribute more frequently) and will automatically be invested in further units unless a unit holder elects otherwise.

Investment Risks and Return Objectives

The objective of the Fund is to generate long term returns by investing in a range of listed securities. The Fund will invest in a portfolio of stocks that meet CI's guidelines of founder led, family linked or employee owned companies.

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.

It is a long only portfolio of 15-30 stocks.

Investment Strategy

In constructing the portfolio, we narrow down the investable universe to those the Manager designates as founder led, family linked or employee owned. We use our VOF research process to assess individual companies, industries and countries and to construct a portfolio that aims to achieve the risk and return objectives.  The level of exposure to specific industries  and markets will be selected using CI's VOF framework.

CI believes that over the long term sustainable returns within acceptable risk parameters can be achieved by CI’s small, focused, experienced team:

  • Applying our VOF investment process.
  • Selecting the best stocks from the universe without reference to benchmarks and short term performance.
