The Australian market is deeper and broader than New Zealand's providing numerous opportunities to invest in great businesses, often in sectors that are not well represented here. The breadth of opportunity often means that companies are poorly researched and not well understood, which can result in high quality companies trading below their inherent value.

While Australia's fortunes have long been associated with its abundant natural resources, this synopsis is too simplistic. Australia's larger population and internal market also makes Australia an attractive global investment destination. The growth path for Australian companies is often smoother than that for New Zealand firms – there are as many potential customers living in Sydney as there are in New Zealand. This provides a broader growth opportunity for companies before they have to consider the challenging step of exporting their business model.

Our Australian portfolio combines a strong core of companies that meet our strict quality criteria and exposure to companies who we think can become the quality names of tomorrow. This combination delivers a strong, well diversified and liquid portfolio of companies.


Case Studies

Commonwealth Bank of Australia

What does it do?
Commonwealth Bank of Australia operates a leading banking franchise in both Australia and New Zealand and has a strong presence in all spheres of retail and business banking. CBA has built a very profitable portfolio of assets and positioned itself to benefit from key growth areas in the Australian economy. The bank also enjoys an enviable scale advantage in gathering deposits, allowing it an important source of stable and low-cost funding.

Why do we own it?
The big four Australian banks enjoy a supportive industry structure and wide economic moats. Their scale, regulatory expertise, technology and brands constitute significant barriers to entry for potential competitors, allowing the banks to earn healthy returns on their capital. CBA's significant share in core Australian lending and deposit gathering will ensure it continues to profit and grow over time.
