Our investment strategy is to identify future quality

The Nikko AM Global Share Fund gains exposure to global equities by investing in the Nikko AM Global Equity Fund. The Global Equity team of Nikko Asset Management Europe is the investment manager of this Strategy. The Strategy will hold 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.

The Nikko AM Global Share Fund is designed for investors looking for investment opportunities not available, or not well represented in Australia that are expected to provide long-term capital growth. Minimum initial investment is $20,000.

Investment Objective

The Fund aims to achieve capital growth over the long term, with total returns (before fees, expenses and taxes) 3% above the MSCI All Country World Index (with net dividends reinvested) expressed in Australian Dollars (unhedged) over rolling three-year periods.

Exposure to a global portfolio of best ideas

The Strategy’s investible universe comprises of around 5,000 globally-listed companies within developed and emerging markets, across all sectors.

High conviction, high active share strategy

The Global Equity team believes that high conviction investment ideas are best reflected in a concentrated portfolio. An active share of 80%-95% indicates that portfolios match the team’s stock picking convictions.

Experienced team

With an average of 19 years’ industry experience, the Global Equity team members are seasoned investors with proven analytical and portfolio management skills.

In-depth proprietary research

Research and long-term forecasting is done by the team using their proven and disciplined process.

Long track record

The Global Equity team has a proven threeyear global track record, which continues a long record that the senior managers have had managing multi-geography portfolios since 2001.
