Investment Objective
Investments Held

The Alpha Australian Small Companies Fund is designed for investors seeking superior long-term returns by investing in an actively managed portfolio of Australian Small Companies shares. It aims to outperform (after fund fees and expenses, and before taxes) the S&P ASX Small Ordinaries Index over rolling 5 to 7 year periods. The Fund may exhibit a relatively benchmark unaware process in pursuit of superior returns – i.e. the Fund may not invest into stocks just because they are in the benchmark. As a result the composition and returns of the portfolio may deviate significantly from that of the benchmark. The Fund will leverage extensively off the proprietary research and view of the Underlying Investment Managers.

The Alpha Australian Small Companies Fund gains exposure to predominately small to medium market capitalisation shares listed on the ASX, by investing with Australian Small Companies investment managers.
