NovaPort is a boutique, Australian equities investment manager specialising in small and microcap listed companies, which commenced operations in January 2011.
NovaPort is a benchmark unaware, active investment manager. NovaPort is a high conviction investor, which invests in a concentrated number of companies at any given time and consequently its investment portfolios typically have a lower turnover of securities. NovaPort believes there are inefficiencies in investment markets, particularly within the universe of smaller listed companies. NovaPort's approach is focused on buying companies with a potentially improving outlook at a significant discount to valuation. At the same time, NovaPort pays particular attention to the underlying quality of company earnings, industry structure and management in its aim to minimise downside risk. New investment ideas for its portfolios are discovered through conducting extensive research, qualitative analysis and financial modelling with the ultimate aim of providing superior investment returns for investors over a three-year time horizon.
Prior to establishing NovaPort, its principals worked together at a related entity of Fidante Partners managing over $200 million in funds.
