Selector is a Sydney based fund manager. Our team combines deep experience in financial markets with diversity of background and thought. We believe in long-term wealth creation and building lasting relationships with our investors.

We focus on stock selection, the funds are high conviction, concentrated and index unaware. Our aim is to capture real earnings per share growth over the long-term. As a result, the portfolios have low turnover and produce tax effective returns. Our ongoing focus on culture and financial sustainability lends itself to strong ESG outcomes.

Selector has a 20-year track record of outperformance and we continue to seek businesses with leadership qualities, run by competent management teams, underpinned by strong balance sheets and with a focus on capital management.

We are a profitable investment firm, we maintain a strong balance sheet, we have no debt.

Philosophy

Selector’s philosophy is to invest sensibly for the long term. A bottom-up stock selection process is used to identify good businesses selling at a fair price.

As a good business evolves into a great business, its underlying real earnings per share grows. Selector aims to capture as much of this earnings growth as possible over time, since this is what translates into share price appreciation.

Code of Ethics and Conduct

Our prioritisation of ethical conduct and operational excellence is the driver of client outperformance.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)

We believe Culture and ESG are intertwined. We consider them both integral to our assessment of a business. Since inception our in-depth corporate engagement program has been the cornerstone of our in-house research.

Our voting program is the other half of our ESG commitment, all resolutions are documented, researched and voted in-house.

Our ongoing focus on culture and financial sustainability lends itself to strong ESG outcomes. This is evidenced by portfolio emissions significantly lower than index emissions, coupled with outperformance since inception.

Quarterly Newsletter

March 2024 Quarterly Newsletter

In this quarterly, we discuss how Governments keep taking more, and no matter how one justifies it, if it becomes ‘punitive’ and deemed ‘confiscatory’, society will ultimately be the loser. We follow this with a collection of portfolio company reviews flowing from the latest reporting season. We touch on the pertinent numbers and provide a brief perspective on the business and points of view. We then delve into the “Productivity dilemma”, examining the challenges facing businesses and how the Government’s industrial relations approach is cause for concern. Next, we turn our attention to “Our greatest risk”, where we shed light on the profound impact government regulatory changes can have on the financial wellbeing of a business. Lastly, we explore the importance of portfolio pruning in “Watering the flowers, pulling out the weeds”.
