Antares Ex-20 Australian Equities Model Portfolio

Model Description: The Antares Ex-20 Australian Equities Model Portfolio is an actively managed, highly concentrated portfolio of Australian equities. It invests in shares from outside of the largest 20 companies by market capitalisation that Antares identifies as having the potential to offer significant long term capital growth.

Investment approach: The Antares Ex-20 Australian Equities Model Portfolio contains only Antares’ highest conviction investment ideas and is relatively unconstrained at the stock and sector level.

Antares follows a bottom-up investment process, with investment decisions made by undertaking in-depth proprietary research and analysis of individual companies and securities.

In general, Antares aims to invest in companies where the current share price does not fully reflect its view of the potential value of the company’s business. Through company contact and detailed financial and non-financial analysis, Antares’ research analysts gain a first-hand understanding of Australian businesses and the industries in which they operate.

Note: The Antares Direct Separately Managed Accounts (DSMA) will terminate effective 17 June 2019. For further information on the termination and how it impacts your investment in the model portfolios available on the DSMA, please refer to Resources.
