A collaborative approach designed to deliver
We are an experienced investor in equities globally, including in Australia. Our areas of expertise are Australian Equities, Global Listed Real Estate and Infrastructure and Global Equities. We were first to launch a dedicated Australian Sustainable fund and those Environmental, Social and Governance skills are now applied across all of our capabilities
Client needs are at the centre of everything we do. We think and act like long-term investment partners. Our research-driven approach looks at the bigger picture and a longer timeline –allowing us to deliver strong results in a rapidly-changing environment by investing in companies that generate long-term wealth. It means we make decisions based on our own insights, rather than simply reacting to the market.
In our view, equities are considered one of the best long-term investments offered in the market. They have the potential to outperform other investments such as property, corporate bonds and government bonds.
However, due to the up and downs of the market, they are not without risk, which is why, in our view, they are better suited as a long-term investment where they have the potential to be more rewarding.
Equities are designed to provide both annual income (in the form of dividends) and long-term capital growth (when the share price increases over time).
We believe that investing is difficult, and we search far and wide for stock ideas that we expect to benefit clients. For instance, we believe the greatest opportunities may be in smaller market capitalisation companies, or lesser known companies, or those not in conventional market indices.
Our equity teams focus on developing deep knowledge of stocks - helping to reduce risk and deliver greater insights. Our view is that companies that create economic value are worth more tomorrow than today.
AMP Capital is a pioneer in ethical, environmental, social and governance investing, and Australia’s largest manager of core responsible investments1. Apart from aligning our investments with customer values, it also helps us identify opportunities and risks that might otherwise be missed as the world becomes more socially conscious.
Risks specific to investments in equities
Risks specific to investments in equities may include share market and company risks, risks associated with the use of short selling and derivatives, investment management and style, portfolio concentration and liquidity risks.
Armed with greater transparency and cost effectiveness than ever before, our customers want Australian Equities solutions tailored to meet their individual goals. It is no longer one size fits all.
Our Global Equities team has a deep understanding of how companies can create or destroy value over the long term.
We were one of the first to launch global listed real estate products in Australia, Japan, Taiwan, and Malaysia, and have a strong track record of outperformance since then. Our investment team of 15 operate across the globe and provide insights into local trends and conditions.
We only invest in companies that own and operate infrastructure assets with no or low exposure to commodity, volume and competition risks. We believe this provides investors with superior risk-reward characteristics.
