Investment returns are calculated using the Fund's unit price and represent the combined income and capital return for the specified period. They are net of fees and costs (excluding the buy-sell spread and any investment performance fee payable), pre-tax and assume the reinvestment of distributions.
The investment returns shown are historical and no warranty can be given for future performance. You should be aware that historical performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Due to the volatility of the underlying assets of the Fund and other risk factors associated with investing, investment returns can be negative (particularly in the short-term).

Platinum Global Fund Overview
Investment Objective

To provide capital growth over the long-term through searching out undervalued listed (and unlisted) investments around the world.

Where Is The Fund’s Money Invested?

The Fund will invest in companies that, in Platinum’s opinion, are undervalued by the market.  The Fund is not required to allocate its investment in set percentages in particular countries or sectors and may invest in emerging markets without limit.  Cash may be held when opportunities to make investment in undervalued securities are scarce.  Accordingly the Fund may at times hold significant cash positions.  The Fund’s assets are typically invested in cash, equities, derivatives (to manage the Fund’s foreign currency exposure) and other eligible investments.  There is no short selling in the Fund.

This Fund May Be Suited To You If You
  • Believe in the long-term wealth creation potential of share investments.
  • Wish to achieve investment diversification by accessing international share market opportunities.
  • Accept that returns over the shorter term may fluctuate and that returns may even be negative.
Minimum Suggested Time Horizon

Five or more years.

Income Distribution

Annually as at 30 June.

AMIT - PGF

Notice to unitholders – section 601GCB of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) (as inserted by ASIC Corporations (Attribution Managed Investment Trusts) Instrument 2016/489)

30 June 2017

Fund

Platinum Global Fund                                ARSN 600 630 537

Modification to constitutions

The attribution managed investment trust (AMIT) regime was recently enacted by the Tax Laws Amendment (A New Tax System for Managed Investment Trusts) Act 2016. Qualifying managed investment trusts (MITs) can make an irrevocable election to apply these rules.

Pursuant to the notice provided to unitholders on our website on 12 May 2017 under section 601GCA of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) (as inserted by ASIC Corporations (Attribution Managed Investment Trusts) Instrument 2016/489), Platinum Investment Management Limited (ACN 063 565 006) (Platinum) has made modifications to the constitution of the Fund (Modifications) to enable the Fund to elect into the AMIT regime.

A copy of the Modifications are available free of charge by contacting Investor Services on 1300 726 700 (Australia only), 0800 700 726 (NZ only), +612 9255 7500 or emailing invest@platinum.com.au.

Reasons for Modifications

The AMIT regime was established by the Australian government to provide qualifying MITs with the ability to benefit from improved flexibility and greater certainty in respect of their tax treatment. Platinum has decided to elect the Fund into the AMIT regime with effect from 1 July 2017, for reasons which include the following:

  1. Under the AMIT regime, taxable income will be allocated to unitholders using the concept of “attribution”, replacing the “present entitlement” model.  Please note that whilst there is a change in terminology under the AMIT regime, in practice, distributions to unitholders will continue to be allocated by Platinum on a proportionate basis in line with Platinum’s distribution policy.
  2. The AMIT regime permits a more equitable allocation of any taxable gains that may have been realised in order to fund large redemption payments to redeeming unitholders.  Currently, all unitholders receive a distribution related to these taxable gains but, under the AMIT regime, the gains may be “streamed” to redeeming unitholders.
  3. Platinum may be taxed on any taxable income of the Fund that it fails to allocate to unitholders, and may be liable for tax in respect of any tax offsets that have been over attributed to unitholders.
  4. The AMIT regime provides a set of rules to deal with instances where amounts have been over-distributed or under-distributed.  It is a common feature of managed investment schemes that the tax components in unitholders’ annual tax statements may sometimes require subsequent adjustment.  Under existing laws, a new tax statement may need to be issued, requiring unitholders to amend their tax returns.  Whilst the prospect of reissuing tax statements and amending unitholder tax returns for so-called “unders and overs” remains possible under AMIT, this possibility will be reduced. 
  5. The AMIT rules will also provide a mechanism to prevent double taxation if the amount distributed by the Fund is less than the taxable income attributed.

The existing Platinum Global Funds’ annual distribution and tax statements will be amended to comply with the new AMIT rules (AMMA statement).  The AMMA statement for a unitholder will continue to detail the unitholder’s share of attributable income but the format will change slightly.  We will update our unitholder Tax Guide for the first distribution impacted by AMIT (currently envisaged to be 30 June 2018).

Effect of Modifications

The Modifications in respect of the Fund amend the Fund’s constitution to provide Platinum with the power to:

  • make an irrevocable election for the Fund to operate as AMITs (including the ability to make a choice to treat each class of units as a separate AMIT where relevant);
  • recover from the Fund in relation to any income tax liability incurred as a result of the Fund being an AMIT;
  • do all things necessary to operate the Fund as an AMIT; and
  • insert other provisions considered by Platinum as being necessary or incidental to the Fund complying with the AMIT regime.
