Overview

Investment Strategy

The Montgomery Fund invests principally in listed shares of Australian and New Zealand companies and as much as it is achievable in equity markets, the first objective of is the preservation of capital. The Fund seeks to generate capital growth, rising income and to outperform the S&P/ASX 300 Accumulation Index over the medium to long term.

The Fund has an “All Cap” exposure meaning it can invest in small, mid and large capitalisation companies and has the flexibility to move up to 30% of the portfolio into the safety of cash and sometimes more in anticipation of extreme market disruption.

Why invest

  • The potential to generate capital growth over the medium to longer term as well as income from its investment in listed stocks
  • Access to a concentrated high-conviction portfolio of 20 to 40 companies
  • Investments can be added to or withdrawn daily (on Sydney business days)
  • Can hold 30% of its portfolio in cash as a margin of safety
  • Distributions may carry imputation or other tax credits

Investment Team

 

Investors in The Montgomery Fund receive the full benefit of sixteen decades of experience spread across the six professional investors dedicated to the stewardship of your wealth. We have witnessed a broad variety of market conditions and a multitude of influences impacting the returns of investors. What we have learned is that a sensible approach has nothing to do with predicting the next market move, and everything to do with purchasing, at a rational price, an interest in a business whose earnings will be materially higher in the years to come.

Are we about to see a profit and dividend bonanza?

By Andreas Lundberg

We are about to enter reporting season, when most of our listed companies report their results for the prior financial year. With stock market indices at all-time highs, it looks like the market is expecting many of our larger companies to come out with solid earnings and dividend announcements.

What can we learn from the investing themes of FY21?

By Joseph Kim

July is a natural time for us to review the financial year just past – both in terms of The Montgomery Fund as well as the investment journey of the broader market. The 2021 financial year was unprecedented in many ways, not just because the last 12 months has seemed more like an extension of the initial COVID-19 fallout of the June 2020 quarter, but also because of the volatility witnessed in the broader market given the rapid pace of developments in a suddenly “less predictable” world.
