The Portfolio

The Forager International Shares Fund is comprised of securities listed on stock exchanges around the world. An investment in this fund offers a combination of large liquid companies and smaller, value based opportunities.

  • Typically invested in 20-40 securities around the world, the Forager International Shares Fund provides a more concentrated portfolio than most but offers greater diversification in comparison to our Australian Shares Fund.
  • Predominantly focusing on markets which have established legal frameworks and stable political systems, the Fund has investments in North America, Europe and Asia. However, up to 20% of the International Fund can be invested in emerging markets. To date the exposure has been minimal.
  • The research process is undertaken by analysts with expertise in Europe, the UK, Asia and the United States.
  • The currency exposure that arises from owning foreign stocks is not hedged back to Australian dollars. This offers Australian investors potential diversification benefits through foreign currency exposure.

International Fund Team

Gareth Brown

Co-Portfolio Manager

Gareth joined Intelligent Investor (the original parent company of Forager) in 2002 and spent the next 10 years as a senior member of the analyst team working closely with Steve Johnson. Gareth began research for Forager when the Forager International Shares Fund was launched in early 2013.

Prior to this, Gareth spent seven years at Commonwealth Bank, initially in risk management and then on the trading floor. Whilst working at CBA, he completed a Bachelor of Business degree, majoring in Finance, at University of Technology, Sydney.

Gareth’s healthy scepticism and willingness to ask the questions no one wants to ask make for lively team discussions. He is an avid traveller and is unmatched in his knowledge of geography (in our office at least), something put to good use as he scours the world looking for opportunities, particularly in Europe. Gareth lives with his wife, son and daughter in Sydney, Australia.
