Anton Tagliaferro and Simon Conn provide an overview of QVE and the opportunities in the ex-20 space.
QVE aims to generate net returns higher than the S&P/ASX 300 Accumulation Index excluding the S&P/ASX20 Accumulation Index (the top 20 stocks) over a 4+ year investment horizon.
QVE is also focused on long term capital growth and income, seeking investment opportunities that pay sustainable and growing dividends with active franking credits. IML manage the QVE Portfolio from an Australian investor’s perspective, with tax being an important consideration in its daily management.
IML’s investment philosophy is based on the premise that over the long-term, a company’s share price will reflect its underlying inherent value. We seek to buy and own companies with a competitive advantage, recurring earnings, run by capable management, that can grow at a reasonable price.
Why focus on the ex-20 segment?
The top 20 stocks dominate the Australian share market and are amongst the most widely held and researched companies in Australia. IML believes the ex-20 segment offers greater opportunities for above market returns as a result of identifying securities that:
• are typically less researched by brokers
• can generate above average long-term earnings growth
• pay sustainable, regular dividends that can grow over time
