The Fund aims to provide investors with high returns over the long term through investment in a portfolio of Australian securities listed, or about to be listed, on the Australian Securities Exchange.
Investment is diversified across a range of industries and sectors, with a focus on the largest 200 companies.In constructing the portfolio, we employ a systematic rules-based approach which we believe is a cost-effective way of equities investing.
Systematic investing is a rules-based approach where limited individual stock fundamental analysis is conducted and the investment team use large sets of data to analyse stocks through intelligent screening methods. Passive, enhanced index and smart beta are examples of systematic approaches.
The Fund’s approach to stock selection is based on the use of our proprietary Alpha Model which has been developed for the Australian share market through extensive back testing and research into stock selection methodologies.
Because the fund invests in a variety of industries and sectors, investors benefit from access to more investment opportunities that offer the potential for growth.
