Fund Overview

The Argonaut Australian Gold Fund is an actively managed and high conviction investor, established to target investment opportunities from within the gold companies listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) or other Recognized Exchanges.

The investment manager adopts a three step investment process which includes a high-level assessment of the overall market, evaluation of macro environment and geopolitical conditions and an assessment of specific companies based on our 5 Bricks evaluation process which analyses companies according to valuation, management strength, business strength, financial strength and responsible investing. 

Investors should view the investment on a three year investment horizon, as the timing of a recovery in gold equities is not possible to predict. 

In an investment marketplace characterised by a move to passive index investing and homogenous investment mandates, Argonaut’s specialist gold sector expertise leaves it well positioned to deliver on its objective of achieving returns exceeding the benchmark index, the S&P ASX 300 Resources Index, on a sustained basis.
