Yarra Australian Equities Fund

The Yarra Australian Equities Fund offers access to a high conviction portfolio of ASX-listed companies.

A high conviction Australian equities exposure

The Yarra Australian Equities Fund offers investors exposure to a differentiated, high conviction portfolio of ASX listed companies that we believe have strong capital-growth potential over the medium to long-term.

By leveraging our fundamental, long-term and balanced approach to investing, the Fund aims to outperform the S&P/ASX 200 Accumulation Index over rolling three-year periods.  The Fund typically invests in between 30 and 55 stocks which we select based on our active and independent proprietary research.

Reasons to consider investing

Active and independent

We differentiate our actively managed investment approach through a high conviction stock selection process which is not dictated by sentiment. Instead, we undertake rigorous fundamental research and proprietary analysis to identify and test differentiated, non-consensus insights.

Our insights-driven approach maintains a deep focus on external validation and includes participating in more than 1,600 meetings with company management, boards and industry experts every year.

A fundamental, long-term and balanced approach

Balance across investment styles and stock selection delivers more consistent performance across market cycles. Our analysis avoids growth or value bias, uses multiple channels and focuses on opportunities across different time ranges.

A high-calibre motivated and aligned team

We have attracted developed and retained an investment team of the highest quality. We understand the importance of diversity of experience in bringing varied perspectives and stock ideas to portfolio construction discussions.

Investment in the fund is not available on a fee free basis and this should be factored into any analysis of past performance.
