Perpetual Australian Share

The Perpetual Australian Share Fund is a diverse portfolio of high quality Australian shares, managed by one of Australia’s most experienced equity management teams. The Fund aims to provide investors with long-term capital growth and regular income.

At Perpetual, we seek quality companies with sound management, conservative debt levels, recurring earnings and a quality business. We assess the quality of a business by looking at a company’s products, positioning and brands; its sources of competitive advantage; the barriers to entry in its market and any issues that that may influence the company’s future performance.

We only invest in a company when we believe its share price is attractive relative to its return potential. Perpetual seeks to hold positions for the long term, provided that the quality of the business remains unchanged and the price remains attractive.
