Fund Description: The Fund is an actively managed portfolio of Australian equities listed, or expected to be listed on the Australian share market investing in both long and short positions. The Fund uses active trading, along with the ability to use exchange traded derivatives with the aim of enhancing returns for investors.
Investment approach: Antares follows a bottom-up investment process, which means investment decisions are made by undertaking in-depth proprietary research and analysis of individual companies and securities.
The Fund can hold no more than 25% of the Fund's net asset value in short positions. The Fund can purchase additional securities using proceeds from short selling up to 25% of the value of the Fund's net asset value (enhanced long positions), enabling the Fund to have a total gross equity market exposure up to a maximum of 150% of the Fund's net asset value.
