The Conscious Investor® Fund provides long-term value by investing in outstanding companies. Primarily in ASX and Internationally listed securities, it also invests in carefully chosen unlisted companies.
The Fund focuses on outstanding Australian and international companies that will continue to increase their profits and earnings year after year. The chart shows how much the average earnings per share have grown over the years, a general indicator of future growth of capital gains and dividends. The next chart shows the overall growth of a $1.0m portfolio in actual dollars. The growth rates of the two charts are similar.
The chart is based on the growth of the true dollar value of an actual investment in the Fund since April 2014 after any success fees and assuming distributions are reinvested. Over this time, an investment of $1.0m grew to $1,613,988.60. This a total growth of 61.40%, an average of 12.92% per year. In contrast, an investment in the S&P/ASX 200 accumulation index would have grown to $1,296,016.93, an average of 6.80% per year. (For the unit prices since inception, click [ here ].)
|Using Conscious Investor, the Fund scans 1000s of companies looking for the best of the best. Next, these companies are thoroughly examined individually to test whether they are suitable investments: we want outstanding investments in each sector. We particularly focus on sectors within broad themes with strong tailwinds in today's world such as health maintenance and care, automation and exploitation of routine tasks, and the move to a cashless society with efficient financial data management.||The Fund focuses on Australia and the US. Via the US market, we focus on global companies with preeminent brands known around the world. The following chart shows the average annual total shareholder return of the Fund equity investments via the New York Stock Exchange, the NASDAQ exchange and the Australian Securities Exchange (This is performance of the equities only assuming dividends are reinvested: it does not take into account cash holdings or performance fees.)|
