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.
Growth potential for strong returns
Small companies investing can provide excellent longer-term growth potential as we seek to invest in quality, smaller companies with room to grow.
Consistent long-term performance
Since inception in 1996, the Fund has earned above-benchmark returns for investors.
Deep research advantage
Perpetual’s investment philosophy focuses on bottom up research and engagement with management. This is particularly valuable in smaller companies.
Expert management team
The Fund is managed by one of Australia’s largest and most experienced equity teams.
