Maple-Brown Abbott Australian Share Fund - Retail

The Fund is an actively managed fund that invests in a select range of listed Australian equities. The Fund may also invest in unlisted equities provided that they are expected to be listed within 3 months from the date of investment. The Fund offers investors exposure to a portfolio that has a value bias with the potential to provide long-term capital growth and income. We seek companies that have higher levels of franked dividends than the market and where we assess the discount to intrinsic value is sufficiently attractive. The Fund gains exposure to small cap stocks by purchasing units in the Maple-Brown Abbott Small Companies Trust. The Fund typically holds at least 30 stocks.

Investment objective

The Fund aims to outperform (before fees) the S&P/ASX 200 Index (Total Returns) over rolling four-year periods.

* Transactional and operational costs vary year to year and represent the estimated costs from the fund’s investing activities. These are reflected in the unit price an impact the performance of the fund. These costs include brokerage, settlement costs, clearing costs, stamp duty and other taxes on an investment transaction. It also includes the difference between the price paid for purchasing securities and the price that would be payable if selling securities (i.e. bid/ask spread). These costs are net of the buy-sell spread recovery which is the amount charged to investors for applications and withdrawals. The transactional and operational costs are generally calculated each year based on the estimated costs incurred during the prior financial year ended 30 June, expressed as a percentage of the average fund net asset value, however the transactional and operational costs will also be recalculated when there is a significant change in net transactional and operational costs.
