About Forager

Our funds

Forager Funds manages two shares funds – an Australian Shares Fund and an International Shares Fund. Both funds aim to invest in undervalued businesses. Both funds aim to invest for the long term. Both have concentrated portfolios. The Australian Fund is structured as a Listed Investment Trust (LIT) and trades on the ASX. The International Fund is a managed unit trust and is open for new applications.


Our strategy

We invest in businesses, not share prices. Our strategy is to find businesses that we believe are undervalued. Businesses we believe will deliver value in the long term. We look for unloved and often under-researched businesses. These are opportunities that we hope others will miss. Part of our strategy is to restrict the amount of funds under management. This enables Forager to remain nimble and to jump on new opportunities quickly.

“I’ve trusted Forager and have confidence in them to deliver results for me over a long period of time. It’s not a conventional addition, but it’s a complement to my portfolio. The team communicates with me about where they’ve got it wrong and how they’re getting it right. In my experience, they’re not your typical funds management team – they’re open and honest with how they approach investing and how they plan to grow my portfolio over time.”

“There is inherent volatility within the Forager investment universe because they’re investing at the smaller end of the market. I like volatility, I’m used to it in my day job, it’s not always pleasant but it doesn’t worry me. I think where Forager wins for me is they seem to have a real curiosity, which in my experience you don’t get with other funds that seem more mechanical.”
