Helping you achieve your client’s goals

Maple-Brown Abbott is an Australian owned boutique investment manager that offers a range of managed funds across Australian equities, Asia Pacific equities and global listed infrastructure.

We also offer multi-asset funds for those of your clients wanting diversified exposure to Australian and international equities, Australian fixed interest, REITs, alternative assets and cash.

For our Australian equities process, we’ve used the same disciplined investment approach and in-depth research process for over 30 years, where we only invest in companies that we believe are trading below their true intrinsic value. This same investment approach has been applied to our Asia Pacific equities strategy since 2002.

Our global listed infrastructure investment strategy targets infrastructure stocks with low volatility, inflation protection and strong corporate governance. We apply deep fundamental analysis whilst controlling macroeconomic risks.

Our investment teams across all of our strategies are highly experienced. We also ensure that our interests are always aligned with those of our clients, and that everything we do is consistent with our strong risk management and compliance framework.

It’s an approach that has allowed us to provide our clients with attractive returns over the long term.

We also understand the importance of keeping your clients informed about their investments and so provide an ongoing range of reports around fund performance, portfolio positioning and market insights to keep you, and them, up-to-date.
