Australian Mid Cap

Overview

The Paradice Australian Mid Cap Fund was established in May 2017 by portfolio manager/analysts Matthew Riordan and John Lake.

The Fund typically invests in 40-60 companies listed outside of the S&P/ASX 50, providing investors with an exposure to a diversified portfolio of emerging Australian businesses.

We believe equity markets are often inefficient due to investor emotion, short-term thinking and too much reliance on a single aspect of a company’s financial health – it’s profit and loss statement. Our key focus is on management, current and future cash flows and the quality of the balance sheet.

Our expertise lies in evaluating a company’s market position taking into account all factors from balance sheet, macroeconomic drivers through an extensive visitation program.

Objective

The Paradice Australian Mid Cap Fund aims to outperform the composite benchmark of 70% of the S&P/ASX Mid Cap 50 Total Return Index and 30% of the S&P/ASX Small Ordinaries Total Return Index over a three to five year period (after management costs and before tax).
