Fund overview

  • The Fund aims to produce consistent returns for investors, with a focus on risk and capital preservation. Further, the Fund seeks to provide investors with a return profile that has a low correlation (i.e. low relationship) with traditional asset class returns.
  • The Fund predominantly invests in Australian and New Zealand listed Securities and may invest Long and Short through Short Selling.

  • Absolute Return focus, aiming to generate positive returns in all market environments.
  • Provide returns independent of traditional asset class returns, providing a high level of portfolio diversification.
  • Run by Ellerston Capital’s experienced investment specialists with a disciplined investment approach.

The Fund uses a “Fundamental bottom-up” stock picking approach with the aim of generating returns from core holdings and select investments on an opportunistic basis. The strategy also utilises a “top down view” to adjust investment exposures accordingly.
