At Antares, we apply our knowledge of the Australian sharemarket to actively manage a range of Australian equity portfolios, including core, concentrated, income focused, long/short, small companies, and listed property securities.
We believe that the pricing of individual stocks and sectors on the Australian sharemarket is at times inefficient. This mispricing occurs because investors tend to take a short-term view, over-react or under-react to changes in a company’s operating environment, and make unwarranted generalisations about similar companies. As a consequence, stocks sometimes trade away from their underlying valuation in the short term.
We seek to identify and exploit these opportunities by taking a longer-term view, and through detailed systematic research of individual stocks from a bottom-up perspective. In practical terms, we seek to invest in stocks trading at the largest discount to their underlying valuation, which is reflected in our target price for each stock.
Underpinning our approach to stock selection is a large and experienced team of analysts. Our team gathers information through financial analysis, peer group comparison and company visits to gain a true understanding of the business and the issues it faces. Our depth of knowledge of Australian listed companies is the foundation for all investment decisions.
Our stock selection has no inherent style, size or sector bias. Rather, we aim to ensure our portfolios reflect the mispricing opportunities identified through our rigorous stock research.
