Greencape High Conviction Fund

Overview

The Greencape High Conviction Fund offers investors the opportunity to invest in a highly concentrated portfolio of Australian shares. The Fund will maintain a portfolio of between 15 and 40 stocks. The Fund is constructed on a best ideas basis, with no regard to the stock weights of an index. This means that stocks are not going to be added to the portfolio simply to make up the numbers - the Fund will only invest in companies that it believes are likely to perform.

Interests in the Greencape High Conviction Fund are offered by Fidante Partners Limited ABN 94 002 835 592 AFSL 234 668 (Fidante Partners). Fidante Partners has appointed Greencape Capital Pty Ltd as the investment manager of the Fund.

Fund objective

The Fund aims to outperform the S&P/ASX 200 Accumulation Index over rolling three-year periods.

Investment approach

Greencape's research is grounded in fundamental analysis, with its efforts focused heavily on an intensive visitation program encompassing all participants in a given supply chain (suppliers, customers, competitors, regulators, company officials, offshore competitors). Piecing together information from various sources allows Greencape to develop proprietary insights and ultimately arrive at better informed and high conviction investment decisions. Greencape's investment process involves assessing stocks against set criteria which are then ranked by the Greencape investors. This analysis ultimately condenses down to a single stock recommendation ranking.
