Global Small Cap


The Paradice Global Small Cap Mid Fund was established in January 2013 and is managed by Lead Portfolio Manager, Kevin Beck, and Portfolio Manager, Paul Mason. The team is comprised of six investment professionals including Kevin and Paul.

The Fund aims to outperform its respective benchmark over an economic cycle by investing in well-capitalised, competitively advantaged businesses the team believes are undervalued relative to the quality of the enterprise. The Fund typically invests in 50-70 securities, is unconstrained regarding allocations to countries or industries, and is benchmark agnostic.

The team believe minimising downside in volatile markets is critical in positioning the strategy to have the opportunity to compound investor capital when markets recover. They intend for this combination of undervaluation and thoughtful risk management to create the opportunity for double digit compounding and outperformance of the benchmark over longer time horizons.


The Paradice Global Small Cap Fund aims to outperform the S&P Global ex Australia and New Zealand Between USD1 Billion and USD5 Billion Net Total Return Index in AUD over a three to five year period (after management costs and before tax).
