CBG Asset Management
CBG Asset Management, the investment manager of the portfolio, is a successful Australian equities fund manager, founded in 2002. We are an active boutique manager with the objective of maximising long term returns to investors through a balance of capital growth and distributions. The CBG investment team has combined investment experience of over 65 years and employs a proven, bottom-up investment process. We manage a diversified portfolio of Australian listed investments with generally between 40 and 60 stocks held. All investment vehicles managed by us have outperformed their respective benchmarks since inception.
What Sets Us apart
The Australian equities market is heavily concentrated in the largest capitalisation stocks. However, CBG’s mandate and relative fund size allow us to invest more broadly and to have a greater exposure to emerging companies, as illustrated by the charts below. We invest in a portfolio of Australian equities with a minimum of 75% of the portfolio invested in stocks from the S&P/ASX 200 index. A maximum of 25% can be invested in stocks outside the S&P/ ASX 200 index.
CBG also has a longer term investment focus than most investors, as evidenced by average historical turnover of 30-40% per annum in our funds. This assists us to benefit from pricing inefficiencies that result from the shorter term focus of the market as a whole. At CBG we invest only in high quality companies, which minimises the risk of permanent capital loss and ensures our portfolios are highly liquid in nature. A key strength of the team is our stock picking track record and in 2013 we won the Golden Calf Award for best-boutique fund manager at the Australian Fund Manager Awards.
