From Decimal to Digital


We’ve been helping clients invest in Australia’s best industrial companies for 50 years. Our new eBook tours those five decades of change and shares the crucial investment lessons we’ve learned along the way.


 Not much has changed.

Whats in the book...

Source: Perpetual. Return has been calculated December 1976 to June 2018 for Perpetual’s WealthFocus Investments Industrial Share Fund, using the first audited figures available. Total returns have been calculated using exit prices after taking into account all of Perpetual’s ongoing fees and assuming reinvestment of distributions. No allowance has been made for contribution or withdrawal fees or taxation (except in the case of superannuation funds). Past performance is not indicative of future performance. The current benchmark for the Perpetual Industrial Share Fund is the S&P/ASX 300 Industrials Accumulation Index. As the Industrials Index series is not available prior to 1979, the S&P/ASX All Ordinaries Accumulation Index has been used for reference purposes.
