A track record of stability and performance in Australian equities

Our Australian Equities boutique, led by Crispin Murray, is one of the largest, most experienced and stable in the industry. We apply proprietary, fundamental research at the company level to gather insights and inform investment decisions with the aim of generating excess returns for our clients.

A proven structure delivering results

An independent business, solely focused on investment management, we have operated a boutique model since listing on the ASX ten years ago, where investment team members have ‘skin in the game’ through a fair and transparent profit share model, driving alignment with client interests, accountability and talent retention.

The success of this model is seen in our long term team stability and a performance track record above the industry peer average1,2 and above benchmark3 across a range of portfolios.

An investment in these Funds involves various risks, including risks associated with an individual security, the risk that factors affecting one or more countries that can influence the direction and volatility of an overall market, currency exchange rate fluctuation risk arising from investing across multiple countries, the risk associated with adverse changes in asset prices as a result of interest rate movements, the risk of an issuing entity defaulting on its obligation to pay interest/principal when due, the risk that a Fund makes substantial losses or has volatile returns through the use of derivatives including options and the risk that an asset may not be converted to cash in a timely manner. In addition, shares in smaller companies may trade less frequently and in smaller volumes and may experience greater price volatility than shares in larger companies, and a Fund’s investment strategy of seeking to generate higher returns by investing in a concentrated portfolio of Australian shares may makes the Fund more volatile than a diversified Australian share fund.
