How is Swell different from traditional fund managers?

Swell is an absolute return focused fund manager and aim to achieve an annual portfolio return of 9%. We take a genuine long-term orientation when selecting investments to exploit a time arbitrage. We recommend investors adopt a similar time horizon when investing. Unearthing insights through deep fundamental analysis separates us from our peers and is essential when managing a concentrated portfolio. Our partners can access information on the Swell Global Portfolio in the product disclosure statements available on HUB24 and Mason Stevens websites.

What is Swell's investment edge?

We believe investors benefit from our five competitive advantages, which include:

  • concentrated quality;
  • capital preservation through risk control;
  • alignment of interest with investors;
  • rational unbiased analysis; and
  • long term orientation.

Our priority is to ensure our investments are aligned with the interests of our clients, and this is why we invest alongside them. We have adopted the CFA Institute Code of Ethics & Standards of Professional Conduct which is considered the benchmark for investment professionals.

Swell investment process

Our unique investment process continually screens our universe of companies and only invest once a target meets our strict criteria. Our favourite investment is a high quality company that is currently undergoing a short term cyclical headwind that will abate over time. This is where we use our long term orientation to our benefit as the stock market is focused on the short term, and therefore these opportunities become mispriced. We prioritise risk management acquiring each company at a price discounted to our estimate of intrinsic value. This minimises the risk of impairing capital if a company underperforms.
