Dear Lakehouse follower,
We have an exciting piece of news to share. Actually, two pieces.
Both Lakehouse funds have ranked #1 for performance over one year!
It’s rare that the same Portfolio Manager achieves a dual #1 ranking while concurrently managing two strategies. What makes this achievement highly unusual, though, is that it’s been achieved investing across two different types of strategies (small-caps as well as mid- and large-caps) and across different geographies (domestic and global).
When launching Lakehouse Capital, we asked for a committed pool of aligned investors to contribute a large initial minimum investment and share our long-term time horizon. Specifically, we asked for investors who measured success over years, not months. And those who knew that trends come and go but that proven, repeatable investment processes win out over time.
So we are pleased to share the news of this dual #1 ranking and say thank you to our early foundational investors for their conviction and enthusiasm.
And we wanted to share this news with Lakehouse followers too…
Now, we are the first to say that past performance is not indicative of future returns and that Lakehouse Capital is still young and building up its track record. Still, while early days in the grand scheme of things, we are pleased with the early progress towards our ultimate goal of long-term outperformance for both funds.
As revealed in the March 2019 monthly letter, the Lakehouse Small Companies Fund has returned 66.9% net of fees and expenses since inception compared to 28.5% for its benchmark, the S&P/ASX Small Ordinaries Accumulation Index.
Discussed further in the March 2019 monthly letter, the Lakehouse Global Growth Fund has returned 23.3% net of fees and expenses since inception compared to 10.3% for its benchmark, the MSCI All Country World Index Net Total Returns (AUD).
Why invest in small-caps? Why go global?
The simple reality is that both strategies have much more potential upside than the slow-growing large companies that dominate local headlines. Small-cap companies are a good deal faster-growing and going global unlocks 98% of the world’s equity market value that is listed outside Australia, including everyday household names and the world’s most dominant, valuable technology companies.
Looking to diversify away from slow-growing banks and miners? Lakehouse Capital and its two high-conviction growth funds could be a complementary strategy to consider.
