Platypus Asset Management

A true-to-label growth manager, specialising in Australian equities

Investing in Australian Equities

As a specialist Australian equities growth manager, Platypus Asset Management believe that the risk-return offered by the Australian equity market can be improved by utilising active management. Platypus offer the following strategies to invest in companies listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX): 

The Platypus Australian Equities Fund is a high conviction, concentrated growth portfolio that is index-agnostic. The Fund invests in companies that grow earnings in a sustainable way, have a history of consistent earnings growth and a clearly defined future growth path.

The Platypus Systematic Growth Fund is a low cost fund that uses a systematic approach based on academic research and market intuition to tilt towards stocks with high quality momentum. The result is a dynamically managed diversified portfolio of stocks that creates better risk-adjusted returns than the market as a whole and aided by low fees, this offers much better value for the investor. 

Our focus is to generate superior returns for investors.

Our joint venture partner

Platypus Asset Management was founded in 1998, and formed a joint venture with Australian Unity in 2006.

Not all joint venture models are the same, and it pays to understand the differences. The ‘strengthened by’ symbol is designed to endorse Australian Unity’s boutique fund managers, highlighting a level of support and stability that others in the market just don’t have.
