Maple-Brown Abbott Australian Value Opportunities Fund

The Fund is an actively managed fund that invests in listed (and to be listed) Australian equities.

We manage the Fund on a ‘benchmark unaware’ basis and construct a portfolio of high conviction stocks across a broad universe of Australian companies which we expect to deliver strong risk-adjusted returns over the long-term, without reference to a benchmark. The Fund aims to invest in a combination of large, mid and small capitalisation stocks and typically holds between 25–40 stocks.

Our value-based investment philosophy underlies our approach to stock selection, driven by in-depth analysis from our expert team of investment professionals. We use our bottom-up research process to maximise the opportunities to deliver income and long-term capital growth to our investors.
