Direct access to a global equities fund manager

The Forager International Shares Fund provides you with the opportunity to invest in global businesses that we believe are undervalued. With a proven track record, we remain nimble enough to invest in smaller listed companies under-researched by many investment managers, leading to long-term outperformance for our actively managed International Fund.

Our ApproachOur Approach

The Forager International Shares Fund provides a different approach to investing overseas.

We’re opportunistic in our approach – we invest where we see the greatest value and potential for return in the market. Often this is small to medium sized companies to seek outperformance. We do find value in the mid-to-large cap companies, which often provide a nice balance of liquidity and resilience into our portfolios alongside the small cap companies.

– Concentrated portfolio of our best ideas, typically 20-10 stocks.

– Board sector and market cap mandate

– Strictly value/valuation driven

– Seeking significant discount to true value

– Research analysts with expertise in Europe, the UK, and the US.

– The Fund is unhedged so offers foreign currency exposure

– Start investing with a $20,000 lump sum or $200 per month direct debit.

Key Drivers of PerformanceKey Drivers of Performance

Our stock selection of businesses that are materially mispriced by markets is key in driving our strong long term performance. Our disciplined fundamental analysis is applied to an unconstrained world, and supported with our willingness to genuinely take a long-term view on investments.

We believe diversity provides resilience. While we manage a concentrated portfolio, we focus on different geographies, sectors, market caps, and different types of businesses to create a more resilient portfolio.

Forager thrives in volatile markets as we seek investments that are trading at significant discounts to the true value of the company. During these times when valuations are reached quickly, the portfolios can experience high turnover, as we take advantage of these market movements. The Forager International Shares Fund reported a performance of +83.93% over the past year (to 30 April 2021), net of all fees.

Our team provides agility and range. While we are small we have a wide variety of expertise in different areas across the team.
