International Shares Fund


The Forager International Shares Fund offers a different approach to investing overseas. By blending small and mid cap ideas with larger more resilient businesses as opportunities emerge, the Fund can provide your portfolio exposure to a unique collection of global shares. The minimum investment in this Fund is $20,000, or $1,000 per month in the monthly savings plan. You do not need an initial investment to start a monthly investment plan.

  • The Forager International Shares Fund invests in 20-40 businesses globally, offering a more concentrated portfolio than many global funds.
  • The target markets are those with solid legal systems and political stability, with research being undertaken by experts in Europe, the UK, the US and Asia.
  • The Fund doesn't hedge currency exposure from overseas stocks, therefore providing investors some diversification through foreign currency exposure.
  • Distributions are semi-annually, targeting a 4% yield. Special distributions may be issued when taxable income is significantly in excess of the ordinary distribution. This policy may be adjusted by the RE at their discretion.
