Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1. How often does The Montgomery [Private] Fund price?

    The Net Asset Value (after expenses) is calculated weekly, every Thursday.

  • 2. How is the portfolio constructed?

    The Montgomery [Private] Fund’s portfolio is built up stock-by-stock. As each company that meets the Fund’s criteria is added, the portfolio should exhibit characteristics the average value of which is superior to the broader markets. As a consequence, the portfolio should also demonstrate below-average characteristics for business risk.

    Also consequently, investment weightings will vary considerably from general industry benchmarks such as the S&P/ASX 200. Please refer to the Information Memorandum Section 3 for more information on the investment strategy and process.

  • 3. What is the minimum initial investment?

    A minimum initial investment of $1,000,000 is required. Montgomery Investment Management can waive this minimum at their discretion.

    Investors can add to their initial investment at any time, through a lump sum additional investment, for which there is a minimum of $50,000. Additional investments will be processed weekly.

  • 4. How often is income paid?

    Any income distributions are paid annually (as at 30 June each year). Distributions can be reinvested in full back into the Fund or paid out entirely to the financial institution account nominated on your application form. We distribute all taxable income to investors each year, including any taxable capital gains. Distributions may also carry imputation or other tax credits. Generally, net income is difficult to predict, and the size of distributions may vary from year to year. There may be periods when net income could be negative and no distribution is made.

  • 5. How can I see my unit balance and investment value online?

    Our administrator, Fundhost, has a portal that investors can access to see their balance and download all statements. Once invested, you will be given registration details.

  • 6. How do I redeem my funds?

    To redeem your holding, simply fill out the Redemption Request form with the required notice period and have it signed by the authorised signatories on the account. Please see the manage my investments section.

    Redemptions can be made semi-annually at 31 January and 31 July.

    Withdrawal requests will be processed using the unit price effective for 31 July or 31 January (as appropriate).

    Fundhost must receive your request by 4pm Sydney time 45 days before 31 July or 31 January (as appropriate).

    Withdrawal requests at other times may be permitted but will attract a Redemption Levy of 0.5%, which is retained by the Fund. Please refer to the Information Memorandum Section 4 for more information.

  • 7. Do you pay any advisers remuneration?

    No commissions are paid by us to any financial advisers.
