The Team Behind Your Investments


The Team Behind Your Investments

As a firm, we owe our success to the support of our clients and the dedication of our staff. Platinum today employs more than 120 professionals, and each one of us is driven by the same core mission – to look after our clients’ money ably and responsibly. This is true not only of our investment team, but is also what steers our client services and operational teams.



Platinum is one of Australia’s leading investment managers in international equities.
Platinum has an independent style of investment management driven by a thematic stock picking approach. The composition of a Fund’s assets is determined largely by the availability of companies regarded as undervalued by Platinum rather than by macro-economic modelling (referred to as top-down asset allocation) or by reference to global share index weightings (referred to as benchmarking).
Platinum’s investment strategy is applied with the aim of achieving absolute returns for Investors over the long-term. This is our central endeavour. It is complemented by monthly and quarterly communications to keep Investors abreast of our perspective and portfolio positioning.
