Investment strategy

The Fund utilises SGH’s proven investment philosophy and approach to invest in a concentrated portfolio of around 20-60 companies that are primarily listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), excluding the largest 20 securities in the S&P/ASX 300 Index (as determined by their market capitalisation). 1

SGH seek to identify and invest in quality Australian listed securities through first hand company visits. Quality is chiefly an evaluation of a company’s management, balance sheet and business model. Only those companies which pass SGH’s rigorous quality screen are considered for portfolio inclusion. We see risk in terms of investing in a poor quality company, or overpaying for a good one, and do not view risk in benchmark relative terms.

SGH therefore downplay benchmarks in portfolio construction since these provide little indication of future performance. SGH is comfortable not holding companies if they do not satisfy its disciplined quality and valuation criteria, regardless of their benchmark weight.

The normal characteristics of the Fund include:

  • Little reference to the benchmark.
  • Low cash allocation (as the aim is to be fully invested in securities).

1 If a security purchased is initially outside of the S&P/ASX20 Leaders Index, and later becomes a part of this index, the Fund can continue to hold the security and sell down the security in due course.

Investment parameters

The Fund is generally fully invested in Australian equity securities, in a mix of asset classes as follows:

  • 90-100% Australian equity securities
  • 0-10% Cash

Please note that these are indicative asset allocation ranges for the Fund.
