CEO and Founder Mike Taylor explains the key strategy behind the Australasian Dividend Growth Fund’s 10-year strong performance.

Our Australasian Dividend Growth Fund has been one of Pie’s best performing funds and is celebrating its 10-year milestone with performance we are very proud of.

The fund has a 10-year annualised return of 19.2%*, and has provided strong returns to our highly-valued clients.

We’ve had a consistent strategy
We have employed a consistent strategy of buying predominantly dividend-paying growth companies in Australasia that we believe are undervalued. 

This strategy does come with a higher level of risk than some other funds and past results are not an indicator or guarantee that it will be successful in the future (please see our Product Disclosure Statement for more details about risks).

Our active management strategy means we can also be nimble and take advantage of opportunities in growth companies and sectors across Australasia, in this ever-changing pandemic environment. This requires extensive work and research by our investment team.

Thinking differently is important
Thinking differently and applying a high conviction strategy is key. We invest in companies we think have a strong future. Our goal is to invest when they are cheap - before they get popular and expensive. In small cap land, there is no point turning up to the party when everyone is dancing on the tables. In fact, that’s the time to leave.
