Fund Overview

The Fund employs an active, research-driven investment approach which seeks to identify a portfolio of unlisted (pre-IPO and expansion capital) and listed (micro and small capitalisation) companies, with the aim of delivering superior returns to the Benchmark over time.

The Fund invests in companies that are believed to have the potential to deliver significant upside over the medium term and where there is a reasonable margin of safety to mitigate downside risk. Investments will generally be made in companies that have sound business franchises with attractive earnings profiles that operate in growth industries and trade at a discount to valuation. For inclusion in the portfolio, companies must, either directly or indirectly, demonstrate a pathway to aiding the abatement of carbon within Australia and the global economy.

  • Number of positions:
    • Typically 10 – 30 positions in unlisted/pre-IPO investments; and
    • 25 – 40 positions in listed micro and small capitalisation investments.
    • The maximum exposure to unlisted securities (including pre-IPO investments) is limited to 50% at cost of the Net Asset Value of the Fund.
  • Lock-up period: Three Years (from 31 May 2022)

We believe the small and micro cap segments of the market will play a critical role in reducing carbon emissions from large companies through enablement of technology solutions.

We strongly believe that small and micro cap companies will be the enabling “pick and shovel” businesses to their large cap counterparts, facilitating a transition to net-zero emissions by 2050 and experiencing super-normal growth as a by-product of this evolution.
