Investment Philosophy

The Investment Manager believes that markets are fundamentally inefficient resulting in mispriced securities and that active investment management will result in higher than ‘benchmark’ returns. The Fund has adopted the S&P/ASX200 Accumulation Index as the benchmark for its performance. The Investment Manager also believes that, on review of many markets globally, no individual style or method of investing will always ensure outperformance in terms of return on investment. In light of this, the Investment Manager will adopt a style-neutral bias adapting to the dominant style dependant on where the market is in its investment cycle. Further, the Investment Manager believes that actual and forecasted events underpin absolute and relative price movements of securities. The Investment Manager will utilise a number of frameworks to assist in positioning the Fund’s portfolio of investments.

Investor Suitability

Our Fund is suited to investors that seek equity market growth exposure but gain comfort from the fact that we have historically provided greater downside protection due to our ability to reduce net market exposure via shorting of individual securities and ASX 200 futures contracts.
