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  • Investments can be added to or withdrawn daily (on Sydney business days)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
