Nikko AM Global Share Fund

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.
