Investment Approach

Perpetual Investments aims to achieve the above objectives by adopting a "bottom-up" stock selection approach to investing, where the decision to buy or sell is based on fundamental quality and valuation. The portfolio is constructed within a framework that is independent of the benchmark in terms of stock, sector and country weights. Added value is expected to come from the Portfolio Manager's high conviction approach to stock selection.

The currency exposure of the Fund is typically unhedged, although currency hedging may be used to protect investments at the discretion of the investment manager.

Derivatives may be used in managing the Fund.
