  • An Important Announcement

    Roger Montgomery
    June 5, 2012

    It is with some excitement that I announce that Mr Tim Kelley will soon be sitting alongside David Buckland, Russell Muldoon and myself at the offices of Montgomery Investment Management.

    Tim’s background as a director at Gresham Advisory included M&A advice to the likes of BHP in their bid for RIO as well as their merger with Billiton. You can read our Media Release Here:  20120605_Montgomery_Media_Release.

    Tim will be joining at a time of great consternation worldwide and I am sympathetic to the nervousness pervading our markets and more importantly, investors’ portfolios.

    We expect volatility to continue for some time as Greece moves another step towards deja vu on June 17.

    One of the real issues for the United Nations of Despair of course is that their currency does not reflect their individual predicaments.

    Germany is arguably less interested in a collapse of the Euro because it is more competitive than it would be if it returned to the DMark.  On the other hand Greece’s exchange rate is overvalued.

    But for Australia, Greece is a sideshow that ironically has a huge and real impact.  This is because Europe is a giant consumer of Chinese and American products and services.  In turn, America is a giant consumer of Chinese products.  The butterfly effect ensures China – the driver of the one cylinder of our economy that has been working – slows down.

    The Chinese slowdown comes just as the supply of Iron Ore ramps up and Australian economic growth, which was being held up by the resource boom, will be hard hit by a slowdown in resource investment and expansion if iron ore prices resume their slide.

    At Montgomery Investment management we have been navigating this latest turn of events with both confidence and a little trepidation.  Value investors tend to be early to leave the party and the rally between January and April – a rally in many undeserving companies – left us with a little of an egg-on-the-face feeling.

    But sticking to our processes (which involves moving to cash in the absence of companies that meet our criteria for value and quality) will inevitably lead to periods of underperformance.  Nevertheless we took advantage of the strong, and arguably unjustified, prices on offer in April to take profits on anything with exposure to the materials sector.

    Those of you who have been watching our appearances on TV over the last six months will be familiar with our staunch distaste for mining particularly coal and iron ore. The result of this action to take profits amid what we believe to be declining commodity prices and related-company valuations, has been continued outperformance (see chart, which is net of management fees and charges – an investment in the Montgomery [Private] Fund can only be made by wholesale or sophisticated investor through an application attached to The Information Memorandum).

    And so, with market prices declining significantly, we are excited about the value Tim will quickly add for investors in The Montgomery [Private] Fund, right when bargains abound and as markets correct.

    If you would like to discuss an investment in The Montgomery [Private] Fund for wholesale investors upon its next opening, please send an email by clicking here and selecting the Apply To Invest tab at the top right hand side.

    Finally if you have some time and would like to watch Tom Elliott, Nabila Ahmed (AFR companies Editor) and myself chat with Alan Kohler about Hastie, Iron Ore and Europe click on the screenshot:
