Investment Objective

Aims to provide investors with long term capital growth via an investment in a portfolio of quality Australian microcap companies. Microcap companies are defined as companies with a market capitalisation of less than $250 million on acquisition. Whilst the Fund has no formal benchmark, for reporting purposes the Fund is measured against the S&P/ASX Small Ordinaries Accumulation Index.

Investment Approach

We aim to achieve the Fund's investment objective by:
- adopting a 'bottom-up' stock selection approach to investing, where the decision to buy or sell is based on fundamental quality and valuation
- constructing the portfolio within a framework that is benchmark independent in terms of stock and sector weights
- aiming to add value from the portfolio manager's high conviction approach to stock selection.
Derivatives may be used in managing the Fund.

Effective 1 March 2017 we have updated fees and costs information, and issued a new Product Disclosure Statement (PDS). Due to changes in ASIC Class Order [CO 14/1252], we have updated our disclosure in respect of the estimated management cost of the Pure Series Funds. This amount includes estimated indirect costs which are paid by the Fund, and are not a direct cost to you. It also includes a 4.53% estimated performance fee. The management fee you pay to Perpetual has not changed. A full explanation of fees and costs is set out in the PDS. For a copy of the replacement PDS please download the document from the How to Invest tab.
