Maple-Brown Abbott Australian Equity Trust

The Fund is invested in companies listed (or expected to be listed) on an Australian securities exchange and is actively managed.

Our value-based investment philosophy underlies our approach to stock selection, driven by our bottom-up research process designed to maximise the opportunities to deliver income and long-term capital growth to our clients. We use several valuation screens to rank our investment universe and generate stock ideas. Our experienced team then undertakes detailed quantitative and qualitative analysis to identify companies that are trading at a discount to our assessment of their underlying value.

The Fund provides exposure to a diversified portfolio of our highest conviction opportunities which we expect to deliver strong risk-adjusted returns over the long-term. We aim to invest across a broad universe of Australian companies and will typically hold 25–40 stocks.

Investment objective

The Fund aims to outperform the S&P/ASX 300 Total Return Index, after fees, over a four-year period.
