Nikko AM Australian Share Concentrated Fund
Quarterly Fund Update - Q4 2016
Tim Johnston, Deputy Head of Australian Equities
The Fund aims to provide long-term capital growth and income by investing in a concentrated selection of shares. 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.
Lower absolute volatility than the Index (at most stages of the economic cycle)
The yield bias of the Fund means the portfolio will typically hold stocks that have relatively higher earnings stability than the average, resulting in lower absolute volatility.
Good diversification benefits when blended with other styles
The highly concentrated portfolio, which has an absolute return focus and yield bias, offers investors an additional risk and return option for their investment portfolio.
Long track record in managing share income mandates
The Australian equities team has a 15-year track record in managing share income mandates for institutional clients.
Managed by a large, experienced & stable investment team
The 11-member Australian equities team has an average of 17 years’ industry experience and has been working together as a team for an average of 10 years.
The majority of the Australian equities team has direct equity ownership in a 50:50 joint venture company alongside Nikko AM Limited, which helps to maintain team stability and allows investment professionals to share in the team’s business success and growth.
