Investments

We look for companies that exhibit two major characteristics: value and growth. When selecting an investment, it must have growth opportunities and be priced at a discount to our valuation. These are small cap companies listed in Australia and New Zealand. We believe that it is better to focus our attention on a handful of carefully selected investments, so we will typically have 15 of our best ideas in our Australasian funds.
