For the period 1 January 2002 to 30 April 2006, the CPH Group GEMS Portfolio was not operated within a separate fund structure. The underlying investment assets of the CPH Group GEMS Portfolio were owned during that time within corporate entities of the CPH Group for which audited accounts were prepared on an annual basis. Accordingly, in order to provide relevant historical performance information for the period 1 January 2002 to 30 April 2006 (Historical Returns) net returns were calculated on the basis of the actual dollar returns of the CPH Group GEMS Portfolio adjusted to reflect a fund structure similar to the Fund and including all fees. The returns of the Fund and the relevant Indices are net of fees, expenses and taxes and assuming distributions are reinvested.
The date of demerger of the Ellerston GEMS Fund was 2 November 2009, Investors were allocated GEM B units which represented 94.3% of the Ellerston GEMS Fund.
The performance figures presented are for the Ellerston Global Equity Managers Fund. The one month return figure may be an estimate and not the final return. This estimate also impacts other performance information provided. Estimated performance figures (where indicated) are preliminary and subject to change. Returns for other classes may differ slightly. Past performance is not indicative of future performance.
Past performance figures are calculated pre-tax after taking into account fees and expenses and assume that all distributions are reinvested and do not take into account inflation. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance, nor a promise of future returns. Performance can be volatile.
The Ellerston Global Equity Managers Fund is designed to take advantage of investment opportunities while generating consistent returns across market cycles with a focus on risk and capital preservation.
The Global Equity Managers Fund features a specially developed long–short strategy. We take long positions in undervalued stocks to increase the potential for profit, while using short positions in companies or market indices we feel are overvalued to minimise market exposure. Depending on market conditions, we may also use cash and cash-like investments to protect capital.
The fund has a bias towards Australia with opportunistic allocations to the US, Europe and Asia.
Our investment team uses a distinctively contrarian high conviction, absolute return approach with a focus on disciplined ‘bottom up’ stock selection based on rigorous fundamental analysis. This is overlayed with our ‘top-down’ assessment of macroeconomic conditions and the market outlook.
Individual security analysis is qualitative, focusing on management, strategy and factors affecting the business, industry and quantitative focusing on areas such as earnings, cash flow, liquidity, capital structure and balance sheet strength.
The result is a unique investment strategy designed to generate superior returns over the long term and minimise risk.
