The structure and process of the fund reflects the manner we believe is most likely to deliver the optimal long term outcome for the investment of our own capital.

The fund is an unlisted trust and is domiciled in Australia.  While we maintain an active interest in the opportunities in the Australian and New Zealand markets, the fund will consider a broad range of assets for investment.

Risk is controlled through limits on individual investments and underlying fundamental research. At times the fund may hold a significant level of cash.

The investment process is based on the belief that markets generally price assets correctly but occasionally there are unique investment opportunities. Our focus is to identify these unique investment opportunities, perform rigorous fundamental analysis around these ideas and ultimately invest capital based on this research.

[1]An investment tenet represents one or a number of individual investment positions based around a single investment thesis. The Manager will decide which individual investment positions fit within each investment tenet.

[2]  An individual investment position refers to, for example, each stock or bond holding.

[3]  Gross investment exposure refers to the aggregate of “long” positions and short sale positions held by the Fund. A “long” position in a security, such as a stock or a bond, means the holder of the position owns the security and will profit if the price of the security goes up.
