About the Fund
With a focus on companies with well-recognised consumer brand names, the fund offers investors diversified exposure to businesses that operate in a variety of industries and from all parts of the world, from iconic brands in luxury goods to producers of food and beverages, personal care products, household appliances and other consumer durables, from retailers with strong regional presence to financial service providers with global branding.
To provide capital growth over the long-term by investing in companies around the world with well-recognised consumer brands names.
The Platinum International Brands Fund primarily invests in listed securities. The portfolio will ideally consist of 40 to 80 securities that Platinum believes to be undervalued by the market. Cash may be held when undervalued securities cannot be found. However, the portfolio typically has 50% or more net equity exposure. Platinum may short-sell securities that it considers overvalued.
Why invest with Platinum?
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. This is our central endeavour. It is complemented by monthly and quarterly communications to keep Investors abreast of our perspective and portfolio positioning.
The Funds can be used as standâ€alone investment options for international exposure or may be used to complement the investment styles of other managers.
How we invest your money
The Fund primarily invests in listed securities. The Fund invests in a diverse range of branded consumer companies from wellâ€recognised multinationals with iconic globally recognised consumer brands, through to companies with local or regional brands that have little or no recognition outside of their home market. Accordingly, the Fund can have investments in companies listed on exchanges across a wide variety of countries including those considered to be emerging or developing markets which, in aggregate, could be a significant proportion of the Fund.
The Portfolio will ideally consist of 40 to 80 securities that Platinum believes to be undervalued by the market. Cash may be held when undervalued securities cannot be found. Platinum may short sell securities that it considers overvalued. Refer further to Disclosure Principle 8: Short selling' on page 14 of the PDS.
