Macquarie platforms add Cooper Investors funds

Global equities fund manager Cooper Investors has broadened its push into the retail investor market with the inclusion of its two funds on Macquarie platforms.

Investors will now be able to access both the hedged and unhedged versions of the Cooper Investors Global Equities Fund via the Macquarie Investment Manager/Consolidator and Macquarie Super Manager/Consolidator platforms.

According to Cooper Investors senior retail sales manager Andrew Hall, Australian investors are increasingly recognising fund managers with specialist global share capabilities. In particular, financial advisers and their clients are acknowledging firms with long and proven track records.

“These two funds, with their history of outperformance, offer the retail market the opportunity to get exposure to long-only funds that are underpinned by Cooper Investors’ VoF research philosophy, standing for value latency; operating, industry and strategic trends; and focused industry and management behaviour,” Hall pointed out.

“Apart from our unique investment philosophy, we also place a high value on having direct relationships with the companies we invest in, with the 16 analysts comprising the Australian and international investment teams making more than 1000 company visits a year.”

The two Cooper Investors funds have inclusion on seven investment platforms, including BT Wrap, BT Panorama, Asgard, Hub24 and Powerwrap.

The unhedged version of the long-only fund has delivered a net return of 20.5 per cent for the year ending 28 February 2018 and has produced an average annual return of 16.1 per cent over the past five years.
