Perpetual Wholesale Smaller Companies Fund

The Perpetual Wholesale Smaller Companies Fund aims to provide long-term capital growth and income by investing in companies outside the S&P/ASX 50 Index (when first acquired).

The portfolio leverages the growth potential of smaller and emerging companies through a proprietary stock selection process. Perpetual only invests in a company when we believe its share price is attractive relative to its return potential. We seek to hold positions for the long term.
