INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE & STRATEGY

Investment Objective

To provide capital growth over the long term by investing in undervalued companies from around the world.

Investment Strategy

The MLC Platinum Global Fund primarily invests in listed securities. The portfolio will ideally consist of 70-140 securities that Platinum believes to be undervalued by the market. Cash may be held when undervalued securities cannot be found. However, the portfolio will typically have 65% or more net equity exposure. Platinum may short sell indicies (not stocks) that it considers overvalued.

The fund’s key investment guidelines are summarised below. For further details, please refer to the latest Product Disclosure Statement via MLC.

*Source: MLC Limited and Platinum. The return is calculated using the net asset value per unit of the fund. It is net of accrued fees and costs, pre-tax, and assumes the reinvestment of distributions. Historical performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.
