Wholesale Geared Global Equity Fund

The Acadian Wholesale Geared Global Equity Fund (the Fund) seeks to capture long-term capital appreciation by borrowing to invest in a portfolio of global equity securities excluding the Australian market.

Acadian’s systematic investment process analyses more than 40,000 stocks daily to find the most attractive investment opportunities for inclusion in the portfolio. The Fund uses gearing which can magnify both gains and losses from the Fund’s investments.




Investment objective: To maximise risk-adjusted, long-term returns by borrowing to invest in stocks from around the world, while carefully controlling portfolio risk and transaction costs. The Fund aims to outperform the MSCI World (ex Australia) Index over rolling seven-year periods before fees and taxes.
