How the Fund works

The AMP Capital Australian Emerging Companies Fund invests in small companies (outside S&P/ASX 100 Index) that we believe can deliver medium-term earnings growth. In our opinion, these companies are currently underappreciated by the share market.

The Fund’s strategy is driven by an ‘earnings drive share prices’ investment philosophy and that sustainability influences a company’s long-term value. As a result, the team are able to create a portfolio of compelling high conviction ideas for investors seeking capital growth for use in a diversified portfolio.
