Montgomery Alpha Plus Fund


Established in August 2016, The Montgomery Alpha Plus Fund (The Fund) purchases a portfolio of 80-180 Australian and international listed equities, that we expect to deliver above average investment returns.  The Fund simultaneously sells short an equal-sized portfolio of 80-180 Australian and international listed equities, that we expect to deliver below average investment returns. The Fund will also invest in derivatives and cash.

In this way, The Fund aims to benefit from our ability to consistently apply a systematic process identifying both relatively superior investment candidates, as well as relatively inferior investment candidates.

Montgomery’s distinctive research identifies the proprietary combination of factors that cause listed businesses to create or destroy wealth.

The combination of an equal-sized long and a short portfolio should reduce exposure to the market’s direction, including large swings, which explains why such a fund is called a Market Neutral Fund.

The Montgomery Alpha Plus Fund is a market neutral fund that aims to generate positive returns while minimizing exposure to market direction.

Investment in The Fund is suited to individuals, families and their trusts and superannuation funds who may be less confident about the market’s direction and those who value the diversification benefits of returns that are largely uncorrelated with movements in the broader equity market. The minimum investment requirement is $50,000.
