You’ll be surprised how we’ve grown over almost 40 years

Maple-Brown Abbott is one of Australia’s first boutique investment managers, having been established nearly 40 years ago. What began as an Australian value equity business is today a leading investment manager focusing on active management of differentiated listed equity strategies with a global client base. We remain a privately owned boutique with a focus on maintaining the integrity, ethical standards and culture that are the foundations of the firm.

We have three well-established investment teams focusing on the management of Australian Value Equities, Asian Equities and Global Listed Infrastructure. In recent years we have expanded to include investment teams specialising in Australian Small Companies, Global Emerging Markets and Asian Equity Income. Your future is our focus.

Asian equities

The Asian region rewards research, patience, discipline and experience. We have been investing in the region for 20 years, following companies and countries through different cycles to gain a deeper understanding of the risks and rewards.
