No 1 SMALL CAP FUND IN AUSTRALIA

The Prime Value Emerging Opportunities Fund has topped Mercer’s Australian Small Companies (ex-ASX100) survey for return over 3 years to 30 June 2022.

The fund delivered 17.4% (before fees*) over 3 years to top the Mercer Australian Small Companies (ex-ASX100) survey, for the 3 years to 30 June 2022 (source: MercerInsight®). The Fund has a strong track record of outperforming the market, averaging 15.1% p.a. above the Small Industrials and 12.6% p.a. above the Small Ordinaries over the past 3 years.

The fund managers have been recognised as Star Managers for the Emerging Opportunities Fund by SQM Research and Financial Newswire which evaluated 3-year track records across 500-600 funds with a minimum fund size of $30 million.

Our sole aim is long term, compounding capital growth and we are personally invested in the fund.

The fund invests in listed companies outside the 100 largest on the Australian stock market. This provides a large range of quality companies and less competition from other investors.

Our benchmark of 8% p.a. is different to most other fund managers who are typically benchmarked to a stock market index. We invest to generate an investment return, not to beat an index.

We encourage investors to view the fund as an investment portfolio of high-quality companies, not an investment in “the market”.
