Diversity and Wealth Creation
Using Conscious Investor®, the Fund scans 1000s of companies looking for the best of the best. 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.)

No joining fees or fees based on funds under management FUM: we only make money when our Members make money.
The Success Fee means we focus on achieving a high return, not just on ‘beating the market’. The Fee is 20% of the excess above an annual return of 6%.
Members receive reports on the largest holdings in the Fund covering strategy, success drivers, moats and risks.
Powerful Number- Crunching Filters
We start by filtering 1000s of companies around the world using rigorous tests within proprietary software Conscious Investor®.
The filters ensure that we focus on companies with strong and stable growth in sales and profits.
Companies must have consistently high return on equity with limited debt; any debt must be used responsibly.
The filters are based on the principles and ideas of Warren Buffett, the world’s greatest investor.
Since 2000 an Australian Conscious Investor® research portfolio returned 18%pa; similarly for the USA.
The Fund is not interested in risky startups or hopeful turnarounds: we only consider established companies with clear positions in their markets.
Companies must be like castles fending off competitors, attracting customers, and relentlessly strengthening their moats.
All businesses have risks: the TeamInvest approach ensures that these risks are understood, quantified and allowed for.
We check management incentives are aligned with what would benefit shareholders, not just themselves.
The Fund chooses companies that are already highly profitable with a clear path to even higher earnings in the future.
