About the Fund

The Australian Growth Fund gives you access to invest in quality, growing Australian businesses. The Australian market is deeper and broader than in New Zealand, which provides numerous opportunities to invest in great businesses. Being such a broad market with so many investment opportunities means some companies are often poorly researched and not well understood by the market. The outcome of this is that high quality companies can trade below their inherent value. Our team making investment decisions are well informed and spend their time conducting their own research on this market.

Why Australian shares?

There is a lot of diversity in the products and services that companies in the Australian market offer. Because of the population size,the growth path for Australian companies can be smoother than in New Zealand. This is important as it provides these companies a broader growth opportunity domestically, before they need to consider the challenging step of exporting their business model to chase growth.

Highlights and lowlights — June 2020

Your portfolios: Highlights and lowlights

The Australian Growth Fund rose +3.7% (net) in June which compares to the +2.5% return for the ASX 200 Index (70% hedged into NZ$).

A heightened focus on respiratory health globally continues to drive demand for ventilators and masks, underpinning Resmed’s +16% (A$) share price rise in the month.  The challenges the Covid-19 crisis creates for hospital systems is also leading to increased interest in out-of-hospital healthcare solutions.  This is a primary focus of Resmed’s software division and provides another tailwind to Resmed’s growth runway.     

After being two of our strongest performing companies in recently, oOH!Media (-15.7%) and Credit Corp (-9.3%) were bottom of the table in June.  Neither company reported material news in the month.  However advertising markets remain weak (affecting oOH!Media).  A resurgence in Covid-19 cases in pockets of Australia and the US (Credit Corp’s key markets) weighed on its share price.
