Metisq Global Emerging Markets Fund

Fund update

On Monday 1 February 2016, the Directors of Metisq Capital Pty Limited (Metisq) determined to close the Metisq business. As a result, Fidante Partners as responsible entity of the Fund, determined to terminate the Fund and begin an orderly process to sell the Fund's assets. We commenced the wind-up process on 3 February 2016. Once the sell down and repatriation of assets is complete, and we have finalised all outstanding liabilities, we will be able to return the net proceeds to investors. We will keep investors informed of the progress of this via this website.

The Fund will primarily be invested in the shares of companies in global emerging markets, but may also invest in equity securities, hybrid securities (for example convertible notes, preference share and partly-paid shares) and shares in unlisted companies provided they are expected to list within 18 months.

Interests in the Metisq Global Emerging Markets Fund (ARSN 090 850 418) and the Metisq Wholesale Global Emerging Markets Fund (ARSN 090 578 055) are offered by Fidante Partners Limited (ABN 94 002 835 592) (AFSL 234668) (Fidante Partners). Fidante Partners has appointed Metisq Capital Limited as the investment manager of the Funds.

Fund objective

The Fund aims to provide long-term capital growth (over a period of at least five years) and to outperform the MSCI Global Emerging Markets Index - unhedged A$ after ongoing fees, over rolling five-year periods.

Investment approach

The Metisq investment process is designed to exploit market inefficiencies by applying a combination of quantitative and qualitative investment disciplines that together aim to identify the undervalued investment opportunities.

Metisq seeks investments with financial strength and favourable momentum characteristics. Its qualitative disciplines are intended to provide flexibility to profit from a wide range of investment opportunities. Metisq believes that over a medium to long term time frame, underappreciated stocks can generate returns in excess of the market, and that stocks with positive momentum can out-perform over the short to medium term.
