The Yarra Global Share Fund is designed for investors looking for investment opportunities either not available or not well represented in Australia, and which are expected to provide long-term capital growth.
Our investment strategy is to identify future quality
The Yarra Global Share Fund is managed by the Global Equity team of Nikko Asset Management Europe, the investment manager of this Strategy. The Fund gains exposure to global equities, holding between 40-60 stocks, weighted to reflect the alpha conviction in individual holdings.
The team believes that alpha can be sourced from any company across the geographical and market capitalisation spectrum. They identify ‘future quality’ businesses—i.e. those with, or with a path to, high and sustainable returns which are under-appreciated by the market.
In April 2021, Nikko AM Australia became part of the Yarra Capital Management Group, with Yarra Capital Management assuming responsibility for distribution of the Fund in the Australian market. Further information on the background to this transaction can be found here.
