Frequently ask questions

Why should I invest with Platinum?

As an independent fund manager, co-owned by members of the staff, we manage your money (and ours) to create wealth. We attempt to achieve systematic absolute returns; in the past our long-term returns have been better than most world-wide, but the future will tell... Platinum has an independent and different style of investment management, which is driven by a thematic stock picking approach. The disposition of a fund’s assets is determined largely by the availability of companies regarded as undervalued by Platinum, rather than by macro-economic modelling (so-called “top down” asset allocation) or by reference to recognised share index weightings (so-called “benchmarking”).
Platinum’s products can be used as stand-alone investment options for international exposure or may be used to complement the investment styles of other managers. Find out more about Platinum’s approach to investing here.

When should I invest?

Like starting a business, there is "always a better time". The real questions are how you identify it and when you get started.
