• Gain exposure to a concentrated portfolio of outstanding Australian equity opportunities
  • Opportunity to diversify your portfolio with a benchmark unaware strategy and complement your core Australian equity holdings
  • The team focuses on managing risk and preserving your capital with a defensive sleeve built into the investment process

The Chester High Conviction Fund is designed to deliver long-term risk adjusted performance above the S&P/ASX 300 Accumulation Index with a secondary focus on capital preservation.

The Fund seeks to invest in companies that can display growth in sustainable earnings and free cash flow. While we seek out growth characteristics, the fund has a focus on valuation discipline and often generates strong performance from stocks that we consider to be underappreciated or unloved.
