Ralton Smaller Companies Model Portfolio

Fund Description To invest in quality smaller capitalisation companies that are assessed as likely to provide investors with attractive long term returns, and at the time of purchase are listed, or about to be listed, on the ASX and not included in the S&P/ASX 50 Index.
Objective To provide investors with long-term capital growth and some tax effective income from a concentrated portfolio of smaller capitalisation Australian shares. The Portfolio aims to deliver a return superior to that of the market over periods of five years or longer while at the same time seeking to minimise the risk of investment capital loss.
Investment Strategy To invest in a selection of stocks within its investment universe which offer attractive value relative to the market. By doing this we can maximise the opportunity over time to deliver the return target for the portfolio. In constructing the portfolio we take account of our views around economic and thematic issues which will impact market sectors and individual stocks. This sensitivity to the operating environment for our companies adds an additional risk overlay. In doing all of this we focus on companies with quality business models as we believe these are best positioned to preserve capital through the cycle.
