responsibilities

We judge ourselves on our ability to deliver long term returns to our investors that exceed the growth of the global stock market.

We believe in a transparent and fair fee structure that is aligned with what we return for our investors.

Full detail of the fund’s fees are outlined in Fund section here.

Long term horizon

“Deliver long term returns…”
Our performance is measured over the entire period each individual investor has invested in the fund, and not reset annually like other funds.
We believe this to be a fairer fee structure that enables us to focus on delivering actual long term outperformance for our investors.

Bespoke performance tracking for each investor

“…to our investors…”
We track the performance for each individual investor based on the date they enter the fund.
Investors entering the fund at different dates will experience different returns. We measure performance individually for each investor.

Global benchmark

“…that exceed the growth of the global stock market.”
Performance fees are charged only if the fund return has exceeded the benchmark return (MSCI All Country World Net Index (in AUD)) and the return is positive. The fund’s return is calculated net of ongoing management and administration fees.
Investors have the option to invest in passive Exchange Traded Funds (‘ETF’) that track the global benchmark. To measure success, the fund return should be compared to the benchmark return – the average return an investor could have achieved via an ETF.

We hold an Australian Financial Services Licence (“AFS Licence”) issued by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (“ASIC”) and are bound by the Australian Corporations Act.

We believe that prudent money management starts with having the right core values and temperament. We hold ourselves to the highest moral and ethical standards.

In addition to our reporting obligations to ASIC, we have an annual audit process that acts as our final external check to verify that we have complied with the Australian Corporations Act and ASIC requirements.

transparency

Investors can track their individual returns, retrieve end of financial year reports and annual statements transparently through our investor portal.

Investors also receive biannual letters summarising our portfolio and forward strategy.

responsible investing

Our primary objective will always be to deliver long term returns to our investors that exceed the growth of the global stock market. We do this by investing in companies with sustainable competitive advantages.

We believe in achieving our objective in a responsible way that is mindful of environmental and social impacts our investments might have.

Maximising corporate returns and operating responsibly are not separate objectives, but in fact strongly interlinked. Companies that operate responsibly have enduring and sustainable financial success because their reputation remains strong and their existence adds value to society. These are the companies we look to invest in.

We will not invest in companies that use unsustainable practices that harm the environment or society. For example, we do not invest in tobacco companies or mining companies that adopt unsustainable practices.

Our Environmental, Social and Governance Policy provides us with an internal framework of assessment to ensure we are investing responsibly whilst achieving our objective for our investors.
