  • Core Fundamental strategy, focus on domestically based businesses with high quality management and understandable business models.
  • Access to a team of highly experienced investment professionals focused on generating excess returns.
  • A unique portfolio that does not invest in companies that have complex technologies, unproven business models, companies with insufficient diversification of product and supply (e.g. single mine miners) or companies that lack sufficient liquidity
  • A proven bottom up approach to active investment management using OC’s established investment skills to deliver excess risk adjusted investment returns.
  • An intensive company visitation program with industry analysis and strong industry contacts to provide an ‘informational edge’.
  • Proprietary investment information system built up over 10 years to organise and harness the information gathered by the team.
  • Flexible cash weightings of up to 20% which is a residual of the implementation of bottom up stock analysis, adjusted for liquidity requirements.
  • Strong alignment of interests with clients. The managers are owners of the business and investors in the funds, providing strong investment performance incentive. Additionally, all performance fees are invested in the fund for a minimum of 12 months.
  • A cap on size of funds under management to avoid compromising investment performance by lack of transactional flexibility.

The total returns of the OC Premium Small Companies Fund over specified periods are shown in the above table. This table contains information regarding Total Returns to the date specified. Total Returns are calculated after taking into account all fees. Before 1 July 2004, performance fees were not paid out of the Funds but billed by OC Funds directly to investors. In this table, the Total Returns for the period prior to 1 July 2004 have been adjusted to reflect the paid performance fees as if the fees were paid out by the Funds.
