The Nikko AM Australian Share Concentrated Fund LT is a highly concentrated Australian share portfolio, investing in 15-25 stocks. It is designed to provide a total return, with a bias towards income.

This Fund is likely to participate in off-market share buy-backs and may be suitable for low tax-paying investors. Investors not interested in participating in off-market share buy-backs may wish to consider the Nikko AM Australian Share Concentrated Fund+. Both funds are managed using the same investment process and strategy and by the same portfolio managers, the only difference between the two is the participation in off-market share buy-backs.

Investment Objective

The Fund aims to provide long-term capital growth and income by investing in a concentrated selection of shares before taking into account fees, expenses and tax. The Fund is constructed on a benchmark unaware basis,which means stock weightings in the Fund can vary considerably from the S&P/ASX 200 Index.

Over long term periods, the performance of the Fund should be compared against the S&P/ASX200 Accumulation Index. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its total return objective or any other particular amount during any particular time.

Managed by a large, experienced & stable investment team

Good diversification benefits when blended with other styles
