About the Fund
The Platinum Global Fund aims to provide capital growth over the long term by investing in companies from around the world that Platinum believes to be undervalued by the market.
A diversified long-only portfolio of companies from around the world and across industry sectors, the fund offers investors exposure to undervalued businesses in both developed and emerging markets.
Platinum is one of Australia's largest investment managers in international equities.
Platinum has an independent style of investment management driven by a thematic stock picking approach. The composition of the 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).
How we invest your money
The Fund will ideally consist of 40 to 140 securities that Platinum believes to be undervalued by the market. The Fund is not required to allocate its investments in set percentages in particular countries or sectors and may invest in emerging markets without limit. Cash may be held when undervalued securities cannot be found. Accordingly, the Fund may at times hold significant cash positions.
The Fund's assets are typically invested in equities, cash and cash equivalents and exchange traded derivatives.
Asset allocation range
Platinum may use derivatives to manage the Fund's foreign currency exposure. The Fund may invest no more than 10% of its NAV in exchange traded derivatives to gain access to foreign markets or to take opportunities to increase returns.
