by | Dec 2, 2020 | IN THE MEDIA

Specialist Australian small companies equity manager Eiger Capital has broadened the accessibility of its highly rated Eiger Australian Small Companies Fund (Fund) with its addition to BT’s Panorama and Wrap platforms.

The Eiger Australian Small Companies Fund provides investors with exposure to a select, actively managed portfolio of diversified small to medium sized stocks listed on the ASX or NZX.

The Fund is rated Highly Recommended by Zenith1 and Recommended by Lonsec2. Despite challenging market conditions, it has delivered a 10.05% return above the benchmark over the 12 months to 31 October 2020, returning investors 7.65% compared to the -2.40% performance of the S&P/ASX Small Ordinaries Accumulation Index (net of fees)*.

The Fund was added to HUB24 Super and IDPS in September, and Netwealth IDPS and Macquarie Wrap in August.

Eiger Capital Principal and Portfolio Manager Stephen Wood said the platform milestones were part of a strong entry for the Fund into the retail market over the past 12 months.

“Despite a difficult year for markets, we’ve been able to provide investors with strong returns thanks to our robust investment process, which is driven by fundamental, in-depth and comprehensive analysis of a business’s operations, which allows us to select fast-growing businesses capitalising on changing industry dynamics,” Wood said.

Eiger Capital is supported by Challenger Limited subsidiary Fidante Partners, which forms long term alliances with talented investment teams to support and grow specialist investment management businesses.
