Aberdeen Ex-20 Australian Equities Fund *

The Aberdeen Ex-20 Australian Equities Fund is a high conviction actively managed Australian equity portfolio built using a bottom-up approach with little reference to a benchmark.

Utilising Aberdeen’s proven equity investment philosophy and approach, that is replicated and consistent across all equity investment desks, we seek to identify quality companies trading at reasonable valuations through our own first hand research.

 

This Fund is available on mFund – a way to access unlisted managed funds via the ASX

ASX mFund code AFZ19

 

Objective

To outperform the benchmark, the S&P/ASX 300 Accumulation Index excluding S&P/ASX 20 Leaders Index, after fees, over rolling three year periods.

 

About the Fund

The Fund utilises Aberdeen’s proven investment philosophy and approach to invest in a concentrated portfolio of around 20-60 companies that are primarily listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), excluding the largest 20 securities in the S&P/ASX 300 Accumulation Index (as determined by their market capitalisation).
