Dundas Global Investors ADEF:ASX

Apostle Dundas Global Equity Fund

Dundas Global Investors is an independent global equity investment manager based in Edinburgh. They manage a single investment strategy, global equities, in pursuit of capital and dividend growth to keep their clients’ precious funds intact from the corrosive effect of inflation. They invest in the best public companies from around the world, relying upon their own research to identify them. Portfolios typically comprise 60-100 stocks, with no distinction between developed and so-called emerging markets; it’s a global economy.

By owning equity shares investors gain a direct interest in companies’ wealth generation which they experience in two distinct ways, capital growth and dividends. Dundas Global Investors’ investment strategy pays equal attention to both elements.

Clients’ portfolios and their own assets are invested alongside each other. As an independent firm, owned by Alan Mcfarlane and the staff without external shareholders, they manage client’s portfolios free from the conflict of interest that can bedevil more complex organisations.

Investment Objective:

  • Deliver rolling five-year returns in excess of 2.5%p.a. of the capital return of the MSCI All Country World Index (ex Australia) before fees (‘Benchmark’).
  • Five-year compound annual growth in dividends per portfolio unit greater than inflation and the dividend growth of the Benchmark.
  • Achieve lower volatility than the equivalent capital and dividend returns for the Benchmark through a stock selection focus on high real book value growth and growing dividend income.
