The Cromwell Phoenix Global Opportunities Fund
About the Cromwell Phoenix Opportunities Fund

This value orientated fund invests in ASX-listed microcaps using Phoenix Portfolios’ ‘best ideas’ approach and aims to find hidden value in under-researched stocks.

Microcaps typically have little analyst coverage as institutions are unable to deploy meaningful amounts of capital and therefore cannot justify investing in research. This means many companies outside the main ASX indices are under-researched and undiscovered. This can give rise to situations where companies trade well below assessed value. Phoenix seeks to identify pricing discrepancies in these ‘under-researched’ stocks and blend together a portfolio of investments that offers the highest risk adjusted after-tax expected return.

Key benefits for investors

Truly microcap focus
Significant co-investment by investment manager
Zero base management fee

Fund snapshot

Fund Objective

The objective of the Fund, over rolling 5 year periods is to:

  • Deliver a total return in excess of inflation2 (as measured by the Consumer Price Index) plus 7.5%; and
  • Outperform the S&P/ASX Small Ordinaries Accumulation Index (“Benchmark”) after fees and costs.
Investment Strategy

Microcaps typically have little analyst coverage as institutions are unable to deploy meaningful amounts of capital and therefore cannot justify investing in research. This means many companies outside the main ASX indices are under-researched and undiscovered. This can give rise to situations where companies trade well below our assessed value.

We seek to identify pricing discrepancies in these ‘under-researched’ stocks and blend together a portfolio of investments that offers the highest risk adjusted after-tax expected return. The Fund will typically hold between 15 and 40 investments. There is a cap on the Fund size to maximise performance potential.

Investments

Investments are likely to be in small companies with the majority selected from outside the top 300 listed securities.

Benchmark

Investments are likely to be in small companies with the majority selected from outside the top 300 listed securities.
