Important note: On 9 March 2021, we announced an agreement with Fiera Capital Corporation for the sale of the AMP Capital Global Companies capability. This saw the transfer of the investment team – comprising of Simon Steele, David Naughtin, Andy Gardner and Neil Mitchell.
Fiera Capital have since appointed Ironbark Asset Management as a distribution partner for Australia and New Zealand. Australian investors have been sent a Notice of Meeting informing them of a unitholder vote to approve Ironbark as the new Responsible Entity of the Fund on 7 October 2021. In the meantime, the investment team will continue to manage the Fund as they have always done, and we would like to reassure you that there is currently no impact to your investment.
From 16 September 2021 the Fund has been temporarily closed to new investors to help facilitate the proposed transition of the Fund to Ironbark and Fiera (effective 1 November 2021).
For more information, please contact us.
How the Fund works
The Global Companies Fund gives investors access to a portfolio of what we consider to be exceptional global companies with strong wealth creation credentials.
How does the Fund meet your needs?
The Fund invests in a diverse portfolio of 25 to 30 exceptional companies that have an established ability to consistently and reliably create generate wealth over the long-term.
The Fund looks through short-term market noise to focus on delivering long-term returns greater than 10% p.a. with a lower risk of capital loss.
The Fund seeks to be more resilient to market cycles through investing in a portfolio of companies with diverse sources of revenue, strong balance sheets, and identifiable competitive advantages.
Risks specific to the fund
- International investments – including losses related to currency exchange rates and changes in the state of the Australian and world economies.
- Share market investments – the value of the Fund’s investment in listed securities may decrease as a result of adverse share market movements.
- Companies – factors such as management changes may affect a company’s performance.
- Concentration – underperformance of a particular security may have a proportionately greater negative effect on the Fund’s overall performance than if the Fund held a larger number of securities.

The Fund's risk level is based on the estimated number of negative annual returns for the Fund over any 20 year period and is not a complete assessment of the risks of investing in the Fund. For instance it does not detail what the size of a negative return could be or the potential for a positive return to be less than an investor may require to meet their objectives.
