Detachment, focus and logic. Not exactly attributes that evoke excitement, yet at Perpetual they’re exactly what we apply to every decision we make across our wide range of investments. So rather than reacting to market hype, we focus on unearthing companies with conservative debt levels that represent quality and value, investing with true discipline to minimise downside and grow wealth. For as we all know, love is blind and market darlings can all too often disappoint.

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.
