How the fund works
The Fund invests in Australian small companies listed in Australia that operate
sustainable business models and where we believe their medium-term growth is
under appreciated by the share market.
We focus on a company’s medium-term earnings delivery as it’s a significant driver of share price performance.
Integral to the investment process, we believe sustainability influences a company’s long-term value.
Dedicated emerging companies expertise with the backing of a large investment
house and access to its research and investment platform.
Are you seeking capital growth through exposure to a portfolio of emerging companies?
The AMP Capital Australian Emerging Companies Fund invests in small companies (outside S&P/ASX 100 Index) that we believe can sustainably deliver medium-term earnings growth which in our opinion are currently underappreciated by the share market. Focusing on a company’s delivery of actual earnings is central to our investment approach, given we feel it’s a significant driver of future share price performance. We define ourselves by our ‘earnings drive share prices’ investment philosophy rather than any particular investment style. We also take the time to understand where a company is in their earnings cycle, as we think this is an important determinant of the price paid for the future earnings stream. We manage the strategy in an unconstrained style, targeting outperformance in different market environments.
