Australia Core Equity strategy

The Martin Currie Australia Core Equity strategy seeks to provide consistently higher returns than the benchmark throughout market cycles, without the risk of style-biased strategies, by investing in a diversified portfolio of securities based on a deep understanding of each company’s valuation, direction and quality.

Martin Currie Australia is a leading innovator of active equity investment solutions, with over 35 years of history investing in Australian equities on behalf of both domestic and international clients.


Our approach is premised on the philosophy that the Australian equity market is efficient over the long term, with security prices ultimately reflecting the present value of future cash flows. 

However, in the short term, the market’s behavioural biases can create temporary mispricing and divergence from fair value that can be exploited by our disciplined investment process. 

We rely on our complementary fundamental and quantitative research, and our collective insights into the current investment landscape, to identify opportunities.
