Stayer’s secrets: Mercer’s top fundie

Stayer’s secrets: Mercer’s top fundie

Australian Eagle Asset Management is the top performing fund manager over a five-year period with their Equity Strategy Fund delivering an impressive return of 11.6 per cent per annum, compared to the ASX 100 Accumulation Index which returned 7.8 per cent per annum.

Sean Sequeira, Chief Investment Officer at Australian Eagle explains their unique approach, “What we’re looking for is inflection points within a company. What’s changing within a company that can either change or improve the earnings growth profile and/or the quality of those earnings over the next three to five years.”

Their strategy has paid off with successful investments in companies including Fortescue Metals Group and QBE. Despite market volatility, Sequeira emphasises the need for a diversified portfolio and keenly monitors emerging opportunities like Telix Pharmaceuticals.

Montgomery entered into a partnership with Australian Eagle last September to manage our domestic large cap portfolios.

  1. Impressive as the 11.6% return may seem it is my understanding that super funds include member contributions when calculating returns. Member contributions can constitute 3% or more of the return which would give an effective return of 8.6%. Which is less than the 9.5% return for the ASX200.
