Forager International Shares Fund


With funds under management in excess of $320 million and an exclusive focus on long-term investing, Forager Funds is a unique Australian asset management company.

After seven years of performance driven growth, Forager have a sustainable business but are still small and nimble enough to invest in those small listed companies not accessible to most firms.

We will stay that way. The company is majority owned by staff, and our external shareholders support our desire to place performance before revenue. That means capping the size of our funds before too much money becomes an impediment to performance.

The Forager International Shares Fund (previously the Intelligent Investor International Fund) has a very broad mandate; to invest in any listed security in the world. This means that if a security is investable, the Fund is able to own it. In practice, the Fund will predominantly invest in developed countries with stable political environments including the US, Canada, United Kingdom, Western Europe, Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea.

The aim of the Fund is to provide the best risk adjusted returns available from the world’s stockmarkets.
