Source of income
Our expertise in buying quality and undervalued Australian companies has long been recognised through industry awards. Our focus on buying quality stocks when they are undervalued has rewarded investors over the long-term.
Outstanding track record
We have managed Australian shares since 1966, making Perpetual one of Australia’s longest established share investors.
Stable and experienced team
The size and depth of our Australian equities team (an average of 14 years of industry experience) benefits our clients as we have excellent access to company management. The team conducts more than 1,000 company meetings or calls per year.
For selected strategies we deploy our stock picking expertise for short selling, or ‘shorting,’ companies that we think are overvalued. Our shorting capability has been an important strategy since 2003.
At Perpetual our investment philosophy drives our investment decisions. The way we seek to identify opportunities and manage our Australian share portfolios is guided by specific principles:
- We believe equity markets are only semi-efficient
- As a result, we believe you can beat the returns available from the market (or a market benchmark) by identifying and investing in high quality companies trading at attractive prices
- We identify these companies through our own fundamental, in-depth research.
All investments carry risk. While it is not possible to identify every risk relevant to your investment, we have provided details of the risks that may affect your investment in the relevant product disclosure statement (PDS) or offer document.
You can find PDSs and other documents in our resources section. The relevant PDS, offer documents and forms can also be found in the sections below:
