Investment Approach

Perpetual researches companies of all sizes using consistent share selection criteria. Perpetual's priority is to select those companies that represent the best investment quality and are appropriately priced. In determining investment quality, investments are carefully selected on the basis of four key investment criteria:
- conservative debt levels
- sound management
- quality business and recurring earnings.
Derivatives may be used to:
- adjust currency exposure (where appropriate)
- hedge selected shares or securities against adverse movements in market prices
- gain exposure to relevant indices
- gain short-term exposure to the market
- build positions in selected companies or issuers of securities as a short-term strategy to be reversed as the physical positions are built up create a short exposure to a stock for underlying funds authorised to take net negative positions.
