The Zurich Investments Australian Value Share Fund invests in a broad selection of companies listed on the Australian Stock Exchange. Using a relative value methodology it looks to buy stocks whose shares appear to be underpriced to achieve long-term capital growth with some tax-effective income.
The fund aims to:
provide long term capital growth
provide some tax-effective income
outperform the S&P/ASX 300 Accumulation Index over periods of five or more years, and
provide exposure to a diversified range of companies listed on the Australian Stock Exchange.
The fund’s approach presumes that each company has an underlying or intrinsic value which can be determined by research and analysis. It is these discrepancies between the intrinsic value of the share and the actual market price of the share which provides the opportunities to enhance investment performance.
