Perpetual Global Innovation Share Fund

The Perpetual Global Innovation Share Fund is a hand-picked portfolio of companies that are benefiting from technological change and innovation.

The Perpetual Global Innovation Share Fund has an unquoted unit class and an ASX quoted unit class.

We believe the market is often inefficient at pricing companies where rapid change is occurring, and that by focusing our efforts on understanding new innovations early, it provides us the opportunity to exploit this inefficiency to find undervalued and underappreciated companies.

We do not try to predict where markets and prices are heading, but instead, seek to buy companies at prices below what we perceive to be fair value given each company’s fundamentals and the prevailing market conditions. We expect that the share price of these companies will rise once the mispricing is recognised by the market.

Investment Objective

Aim to provide investors with long-term capital growth through investment in global shares that are benefiting from technological change and innovation, and outperform the MSCI All Countries World Net Total Return Index (AUD) before fees and taxes over rolling three-year periods.

Investment Approach

Perpetual 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 a fundamental valuation of stocks.
The portfolio manager believes that changes in technology and innovation can have a significant impact on the future earnings and valuation of companies, and that by focusing on understanding new changes in technology and innovation this can lead to the early identification of undervalued stocks. The portfolio is constructed within a framework that is independent of the benchmark in terms of stock and sector weights. Added value is expected to come from the portfolio manager's high conviction approach to stock selection. Currency is managed at the Fund level, taking into account currency exposure arising from underlying investments. Currency management can be used with the aim of protecting the value of the Fund's assets. Derivatives may be used in managing the Fund. Global shares include convertible notes, which are short-term debt securities that convert into equity
