Montgomery Lucent's investment philosophy is guided by fundamental research and analysis. Small market capitalisation companies are relatively under-researched and when markets misprice securities, this creates investment opportunities.
Montgomery Lucent is seeking to build a portfolio of 30 to 50 high quality, undervalued small and emerging companies with strong growth potential. We are searching for companies likely to benefit from secular trends, industry change and with substantial competitive advantages.
The Fund’s portfolio is built using our “four buckets approach” consisting mainly of high-quality growth stocks along with stable compounders, complemented by cyclical growth companies and businesses in transition.
We then use a “lifecycle approach” to sizing the positions depending on whether they are an early stage, emerging, developed or a core investment. This is a long-only portfolio. The Fund is designed to be as agile as the remarkable small companies that it invests in.
Any income distributions are paid annually (as at 30 June each year) and can be reinvested in full or paid out entirely to the financial institution account nominated on your application form. We distribute all taxable income to investors each year, including any taxable capital gains. Distributions may also carry imputation or other tax credits. There may be periods when net income could be negative and no distribution is made.
Shares in the small capitalisation category can move up and down faster than other asset classes. Small capitalisation companies generally involve more risk because of their lower liquidity, their greater sensitivity to managements’ influence and their greater sensitivity to general economic conditions. For this reason, small cap vehicles like the Montgomery Small Companies Fund is only suitable for long-term investors.
The Fund will be available on platforms over time, so please reach out to us for an update. Margin lenders will need to review the fund individually, so please contact your margin lender for an LVR.
