The Portfolio

The International Shares Fund is comprised of securities listed on stock exchanges around the world. An investment in this fund offers you a combination of large blue chip companies and smaller, deep-value opportunities with the potential for higher returns.

  • Typically invested in 20-40 securities around the world, our International Fund provides a more concentrated portfolio than most but offers greater diversification in comparison to our Australian Shares Fund.
  • Predominantly focused on North American and European markets which have established legal frameworks and stable political systems; up to 20% of the International Fund can theoretically be invested in emerging markets, but to date the exposure has been minimal.
  • The research process is undertaken by analysts in Europe and the United States, providing local knowledge and 24-hour access to markets and companies.
  • 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.

Prior to 30 June 2014, the Forager International Fund was known as the Intelligent Investor International Fund. Whilst this is the same fund and investment team, reports prior to that date use the former name.

Establishment & withdrawal Fees

Due to the potential random impact of currency movements on any one year’s returns, we don’t believe a performance fee is suitable for this Fund. Instead, investors should be reassured by the fact that a significant portion of the staff’s own money is invested alongside theirs. This, we believe, is a genuine alignment of interests.

There is a buy spread of +0.25% and a sell spread of -0.25% on fund units which covers the cost of brokerage. The Management Fee is accounted for in the calculation of the weekly Unit Price at Friday’s close. Applications received during the week are processed the following Tuesday and redemptions are also processed weekly.
