Sydney, 15 September 2017: In its first two years, leading global investment manager Antipodes Partners Limited (Antipodes Partners) has witnessed significant growth in assets under management (AUM) to over $4 billion.
In support of this growth, over the past year Antipodes Partners has expanded the team to 14 investment professionals, opened an offshore research office in London, in addition to launching its flagship global long/short strategy as an Australian listed investment company (ASX: APL) and an Ireland-domiciled UCITS fund.
Antipodes Partners has also received strong endorsements from local research houses with the Antipodes Global Fund and the Antipodes Global Fund – Long Only recently upgraded to “Highly Recommended” by Zenith Investment Partners and “Recommended” by Lonsec.
In a strong vote of confidence, both funds also received ratings from Morningstar. The Antipodes Global Fund – Long Only received a Silver Morningstar Analyst Rating™ (as at 30 Jan 2017), while the Antipodes Global Fund received a Bronze Morningstar Analyst Rating™ (as at 30 Jan 2017).
Commenting on the two-year anniversary, Antipodes Partners Chief Investment Officer Jacob Mitchell said: “The past two years have certainly been an exciting time for the team. It’s encouraging to see our funds resonating strongly with the Australian market as advisers, investors and research consultants recognise the benefits of our high conviction, risk aware approach.
“And now with the Antipodes Global Fund – UCITS launch, we are ready to offer this same opportunity to offshore investors, a significant step towards realising our global vision for Antipodes Partners.
“Furthermore, we are now at a size where opening an offshore research office can accelerate and enhance our investment process and, in this sense, London remains the ultimate melting pot for corporate access. Chris Connolly, Head of Industrials and Commodities Research, will provide us with a senior on-the-ground resource able to deepen our investment process,” he added.
