Fairview Equity Partners Emerging Companies Fund

Fund Description:  The Fund invests in an actively managed portfolio of mainly small cap equities listed, or expected to be listed, on the Australian share market.

Investment approach: Fairview’s investment philosophy is based on the belief that opportunities for identifying mispriced equities are greatest within the small cap segment of the market. This is primarily because many small cap companies tend to be under-researched and therefore have the potential to offer investors significant upside.

Fairview implements this philosophy through a disciplined, multi-faceted strategy of stock selection. This collaborative approach is research-driven, combining high levels of company contact, detailed analysis, a robust peer review process and appropriate risk controls.
