Fund Structure Open-ended unit trust
Investment Manager Technical Investing Pty Ltd (TI)
Objective To achieve a superior rate of investment return in all types of market conditions, focusing on both short term and long term investment opportunities. 

To invest where we see opportunities both domestically and internationally. These opportunities will primarily be in listed companies and can be either long or short positions.

We measure performance for our clients as an “absolute” performance, not as a measure against an arbitrary index. As a result, the Funds’ performance may deviate significantly from broader stock indices.

Approach Our investment strategy is to identify themes and trends through the use of both fundamental and technical analysis. We are thematic in our investment approach. Once a major theme/sector is identified we then drill down and look for individual investments that can offer strong returns. Our investment strategy relies heavily on technical analysis as a timing tool and for risk management.

We believe that the market moves in trends and cycles, that human behaviour repeats over time, and that you can track and measure this behaviour.

We use a combination of top-down macro analysis together with bottom-up fundamental market and company research to identify major themes and trends in the market.

Policy The Funds’ investment guidelines are flexible and aim to provide the Investment Manager with the ability to generate positive returns irrespective of the direction of stock markets. Their constitutions allow the Manager to use long and short positions in securities including unlisted securities, options, derivatives (including CFDs and index futures), managed investment funds, commodities (except in TIFWF) and foreign exchange. 

The constitutions also allow the use of leverage.

We believe that using technical analysis as a risk management tool will be a key driver in the Funds’ long term success.

3 All figures shown include the Net effect of GST.
4 When you invest or withdraw funds the price you pay/receive for a Unit is adjusted by this buy/sell spread to recover the transaction costs of buying and selling underlying investments in the Funds. This is not a fee to the Manager, it is to ensure that existing Unit Holders are not disadvantaged by other Unit Holders buying or selling Unit.
5 Performance since inception is determined by means of a notional unit price which represents the value of $1.00 invested at inception of the Funds and assumes that all distributions are reinvested – the methodology used has been reviewed and approved by Alea Actuarial Consulting.  Performance on units issued at unit prices below the Funds’ high water marks will vary from the performance of the notional unit price due to fees being paid outside the Funds on such units. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance.  The Funds use leverage and this may increase risk and volatility.  When comparing the performance of various investments, due regard should be given to the differing levels of leverage, volatility and risk inherent in the investments.
6 This document does not constitute advice and is not a recommendation to buy units in the Funds.  This document does not take any account of an investor’s personal situation.  Investors should seek the advice of a financial advisor.  This document does not represent the mandate or rules of the funds – the Constitutions and Information Memorandums of each fund serve that purpose.   Information show here can be varied without notice.
