The Perpetual Global Share Fund Hedged is a hand-picked portfolio of 20-40 high quality companies chosen for their long-term investment potential and attractive valuations. The Fund aims to minimise the effect of movements in the Australian dollar (AUD) by hedging the majority of the Fund’s foreign currency exposure back to the AUD.
We constantly assess the world’s best investment ideas and seek to invest in companies that have the potential to deliver strong investment returns over the long term. The Fund employs the same disciplined, active, value-based investment approach used across Perpetual’s broader equities capability. Wherever it invests, the Fund seeks high quality companies with strong balance sheets, consistent earnings growth and strong free cash flow.
With around 98% of the world’s investment opportunities located outside of Australia, the Fund enables investors to access companies that operate in differing regions and in industries under represented in Australia.

About this fund
Perpetual Investment Management Limited
7 years or longer
Aims to provide investors with long-term capital growth through investment in quality global shares and minimise the impact of movements in the AUD on investment returns by hedging the majority of foreign currency exposure back to the AUD.
Adopting a "bottom- up" stock selection approach to investing, where the decision to buy or sell is based on fundamental quality and valuation. The diversified 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. The Fund will substantially hedge the currency exposure arising from investments in international shares back to the AUD.
Currency hedging is outsourced to a currency overlay manager to implement hedging strategies with the aim of reducing the impact of adverse currency movements.
Derivatives may be used in managing the Fund.
