Investment Strategy

The Quest Australian Equities Concentrated Portfolio is managed according to our proven investment process. Our objective is to deliver returns ahead of the S&P/ASX 300. This goal has been achieved.

Stock numbers are limited to 35 with an average of 30 stocks held. We believe a concentrated portfolio of stocks researched by our investment process will optimise investor outcomes. A Quest portfolio will be more volatile than the average Australian equity fund with the potential to deliver larger absolute gains or losses. There is no limit on the ability to hold cash.

Since inception in 2005, the portfolio return, before fees, is 11.8% pa* as at May 2024. Over the same period the ASX 300 Accumulation Index has delivered an annualised return of 7.6% pa. Our Quest portfolio has consistently beaten the benchmark over time.
