One of our best performing funds with a five-star Morningstar rating*, the Emerging Fund gives investors access to very small companies. This fund is soft-closed, but there is still capacity in the Global, Growth 2, and Cash Plus Funds. Recommended investment time frame: 5 years.
The Emerging Companies Fund will invest in a small number of growth orientated companies, where we consider the value is greatest and the possible of earnings growth is high. In particular, Pie Funds intend to invest mostly in Australian and New Zealand Emerging Companies, whose potential we do not consider to be fully realised by the market. The Emerging Companies Fund may also invest in other types of financial products such as cash.
At any given time short-term trading positions are not likely to exceed 10% of the portfolio of the Emerging Companies Fund, however turnover and trading activity of this portion of the portfolio is likely to be high.
During periods of uncertainty the Emerging Companies Fund can increase its cash position up to a maximum of 100% of the portfolio to reduce downside volatility.
Further information in relation to how the investment strategy is implemented is set out above in the ‘Investment Strategy and SIPO Review’ section of this SIPO.

The fund invests in very small companies that we think have the greatest value and potential for future earnings. These are companies in Australia and New Zealand that we believe are undervalued by the market. By emerging companies, we mean companies that have a market capitalisation of up to $150 million in local currency relative to the exchange that they are listed on.
