The Antares High Growth Shares Fund

If you’re looking to add something a little different to your client’s portfolio from your typical Australian shares allocation, the Antares High Growth Shares Fund could be right for them.

But different doesn’t mean new or untested. In fact, the Antares High Growth Shares Fund is now in its 20th year of targeting alpha for investors and has delivered 10.6% pa after fees since inception, as at 31 January 2019*.

It’s a long/short Australian equities portfolio and its investment manager, Richard Dixon, has delivered performance through market cycles over the long term. Richard uses Antares’ fundamental, research-based stock picking process plus, he can short sell, take enhanced long positions and use active trading strategies^.

This fund could suit an investor who wants to benefit from:

  • Active, bottom-up stock selection that’s style agnostic – not value and not growth 
  • A differentiated and diversified exposure to Australian shares
  • A long/short strategy that has delivered alpha through different market conditions over the long term#
  • A selectively contrarian approach that’s been the hallmark of the Antares team for nearly 25 years
