Investment Philosophy 

Equitable Investors believes the greatest opportunities to generate significant returns from equity investments are through the pursuit of attractively-priced investments in businesses with strong growth prospects and/or strategic value.

Successful investment in businesses requires diligent research and analysis of each business.

Its key people, its industry, its opportunities and its risks. It also requires ongoing, disciplined and patient re-evaluation.

Investment Strategy 

Investments will primarily be made in micro-to-mid-cap companies listed on the ASX.

Larger listed businesses will also be considered for investment but are not expected to meet the manager’s investment criteria as regularly as smaller peers.

Equity in businesses that are unlisted or listed on exchanges other than the ASX may also be considered.

However, the manager would require high confidence in the potential for a liquidity event at an attractive price.


About the Fund

Established in 2017 the Fund is an open-ended, unlisted unit trust investing predominantly in ASX-listed companies.

Hybrid, debt & unlisted investments are also considered.

The Fund is focused on investing in growing or strategic businesses and generating returns that, to the extent possible, are less dependent on the direction of the broader share market.

The Fund may at times change its cash weighting or utilise exchange-traded products to manage market risk.
