The DNR Capital Australian Emerging Companies Fund1 has posted returns2 of 11.69%p.a. since its inception in August 2018, outperforming the S&P/ASX Small Ordinaries Accumulation Index by 11.27%p.a.

The Fund offers investors a concentrated exposure to Australian small companies. The Fund’s investment process takes a long-term approach, identifying high quality small cap companies trading at attractive valuations. Sam Twidale and Mark Sedawie are the Portfolio Managers for the Fund, which consists of between 20 and 45 of their highest conviction ideas.

Sam Twidale, says: “We believe the Australian small cap sector is a particularly inefficient part of the market, providing significant opportunities to add value from applying our consistent and proven investment process.”

“Their disciplined approach to executing our quality, long-term, high conviction, concentrated investment philosophy has delivered strong outperformance for our clients, says DNR Capital Chief Executive Officer, Robert White.

It is extremely pleasing to see further recognition for the Fund with the Morningstar Australia Award nomination earlier this year for Fund Manager of the Year – Domestic Equities – Small Caps”, Mr White continued.
