We’re pleased to announce that the Lakehouse Small Companies Fund has lowered its initial minimum investment from $250,000 to $100,000.
This change is effective immediately, from March 15, 2019.
We’re pleased with the change, as a lower minimum allows greater access to the Fund for a wider audience of investors. Since launch in late 2016, we’ve fielded a constant stream of enquiry about lowering the minimum and are delighted to offer this going forward.
For those investors who have a healthy appetite for small growth stocks, the Lakehouse Small Companies Fund could be a complementary strategy to consider.
Why invest in small-caps?
Small-caps have much more potential upside. They’re not companies that most investors would’ve typically heard of and are a good deal smaller and faster-growing than the mega-cap companies that dominate local headlines.
The Lakehouse Small Companies Fund takes a long-term, high-conviction approach to investing in fast-growing small companies listed in Australia and New Zealand.
Since inception in mid-November 2016 to 28 February 2019, the Fund has returned 58.5% net of fees and expenses compared to 28.7% for its benchmark, the S&P/ASX Small Ordinaries Accumulation Index.
We’re the first to say that it is early days at the Fund and that past performance isn’t indicative of future returns. Still, we’re pleased that the Fund is off to a solid start towards its goal of long-term outperformance.
The Lakehouse Small Companies Fund is accepting new investors
Investing in the Fund is a big decision for investors and it’s important to make an informed choice. Potential investors should read and consider the new Product Disclosure Statement (PDS), dated 15 March 2019, (and seek professional advice) when deciding whether to acquire units in the Lakehouse Small Companies Fund.
And while the PDS is the definitive guide, we’d welcome any follow-up questions potential investors may have about the Fund and its strategy. We can be contacted at [email protected] or 02 8294 9800.
