PERFORMANCE SINCE MANDATED1
Targeting fully-franked dividends. Paid Quarterly.
Pengana International Equities Limited (trading on the ASX as ‘PIA’) is a Listed Investment Company (“LIC”) that exists to provide shareholders with continued capital growth as well as regular, reliable, and fully franked dividends.
The strategy aims to generate superior risk-adjusted returns, through investing in an actively managed portfolio of global companies that meet the team’s high quality and durable growth criteria at reasonable prices. A robust responsible investment framework provides an added layer of risk mitigation.
These companies are identified through the conduct of fundamental research, with a long-term, global perspective, and must exhibit the following four key investment criteria: competitive advantages, quality management, financial strength, and sustainable growth potential.
Harding Loevner was appointed the investment manager on 10th May 2021. Harding Loevner is a New Jersey-based global equity fund manager formed in 1989 with over US$84billion in Assets under Management.
Benefits of investing in PIA’s LIC structure
- Shares can be bought and sold on the ASX
- Quarterly-annual fully franked dividends
- Investment activities are not affected by redemptions or unexpected cash inflows or outflows
- Regular reporting to shareholders e.g. semi-annual financial reports and weekly NTA
- Shareholders can interact with directors and management
- The company is subject to ASX and ASIC supervision
The portfolio utilises a negative screening process which seeks to avoid investment in companies that derive operating revenues from direct and material business involvement in the following:
OUR INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY
Investing in high-quality, ethically screened, growing businesses at reasonable prices leads to superior risk-adjusted returns over the long term.
This “quality-growth” investment philosophy has been the foundation of Harding Loevner’s strategies since the firm was founded in 1989. Read more >>
The philosophy is expressed in the four key criteria that a company must meet before we will consider it for investment:
Sustainable return on capital above cost of capital within a supportive industry structure enabling it to earn better financial returns than rivals.
An industry structure supporting long-term growth in revenues, earnings, and cash-flow.
Growth underpinned by long-term fundamental trends, not ephemeral factors.
Balance sheet strength and free cash flow generation to fund long-term growth in all environments.
Skilful management with a good record, a clear strategy, and a consistent regard for shareholders.
