The Perpetual SHARE-PLUS Long-Short Fund invests in companies we believe will rise in value and takes short positions in companies we believe will fall in value.
The Fund offers investors a broader set of investment opportunities: it can take long (to hold) and short (to sell) positions in companies and may hold up to 35% of the portfolio in cash.
We employ our tried and proven bottom-up stock selection process for both long and short positions. Through fundamental company research, we aim to identify opportunities to buy quality, undervalued companies. On the short side of the portfolio we opportunistically target stocks that we expect will underperform. We rarely short the index, we short companies.
OUTSTANDING TRACK RECORD
The Fund has outperformed the Australian sharemarket over the longer term and with lower levels of risk.
Greater flexibility in implementing ideas
By taking long and short positions the Fund has the flexibility to generate returns from rising and falling share prices.
Rigorous research is the engine for stock selection
Perpetual’s bottom-up company research generates the insights that drive our stock selection for both long and short positions. We focus on quality and value to identify companies with the greatest return potential.
Specialist shorting expertise
Perpetual’s equity team has a highly experienced shorting investment capability. This skill and experience has helped the Fund identify shorting opportunities that have added to returns.
