The Fund is an open ended, unlisted unit trust investing predominantly in ASX listed companies. Hybrid, debt & unlisted investments are also considered. The Fund is focused on investing in growing or strategic businesses and generating returns that, to the extent possible, are less dependent on the direction of the broader sharemarket. The Fund may at times change its cash weighting or utilise exchange traded products to manage market risk.
Investments will primarily be made in micro-to-mid cap companies listed on the ASX. Larger listed businesses will also be considered for investment but are not expected to meet the manager's investment criteria as regularly as smaller peers.
The fund ended the month with 31 positions and 3% in cash (including cash ETF). The fund's top positions at month-end included Earlypay, Geo (NZX-listed), MedAdvisor, Ellume (unlisted), Intelligent Monitoring, Scout Security, Energy Technologies, Mad Paws and Upsure.

They believe it's more likely there will be ongoing sentiment swings as the world adjusts to higher interest rates, central banks juggle inflation and employment targets and geopolitical instability looms.
