Portfolio Snapshots

We are an international equities manager, and we invest with a truly global outlook.

Here is a snapshot of the current portfolio disposition of our flagship Platinum Trust Funds and their key holdings.

Platinum Unhedged Fund

Platinum Unhedged Fund is a long-only global fund with A$280.0 million under management^ and a track record of delivering 11.0% compound return annually since inception (on 28/1/2005).*

The fund gives investors exposure to undervalued companies across the globe, including both developed and emerging markets, and is unconstrained by industry sector. Its portfolio consists largely of the manager’s best high conviction stock ideas drawn from all the Platinum Trust Funds.

The fund does not undertake any currency hedging – its currency exposure is determined by the currencies in which the fund’s securities holdings and cash holdings are denominated, which means that its global equity exposure also provides substantial currency diversification.

Platinum Unhedged Fund employs a long-only strategy and does not undertake any short-selling. Cash holdings (typically no more than 25% of the fund’s net asset value) provide the portfolio with a degree of protection in market downturns.

For a long/short global strategy with actively managed currency positions, you may wish to consider the Platinum International Fund, or find out more about our other global strategy offerings.
