Perpetual Global Share Fund Hedged

Please Note: We are closing the Perpetual Wholesale Global Share Fund Hedged (‘the Fund’), effective 27 July 2020, with the view to terminating the Fund by 4 September 2020 (‘the termination date’).

Effective 27 July 2020, we have ceased accepting:

  • any new investors or additional investments (including switches) into the Fund
  • all withdrawal and switch requests from the Fund.

After termination the portfolio will be liquidated and the proceeds will be returned to investors.

The Perpetual Global Share Fund Hedged is a hand-picked portfolio of 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.
