VIP Australian Share Small Companies


The VIP Australian Shares Small Companies portfolio aims to provide long term capital growth from investment in an actively managed, concentrated portfolio of small capitalisation (cap) shares in listed Australian companies.

The portfolios management has currently been mandated to Patersons Asset Management, and invests in 5 to 15 Australian small cap shares with a market capitalisation of greater than $35m that are not included in the S&P/ASX 100 Index.

These stocks are selected after analysis via a rigorous quantitative and qualitative screening process which feeds into a stock scoring system that determines the relative attractiveness of each company and provides a short list for portfolio construction.

Investor Suitability

The VIP Australian Shares Small Companies portfolio is suitable for investors who:

  • Are seeking exposure to Australian small cap securities as part of a diversified investment portfolio.
  • Are looking for capital growth rather than income.
  • Understand this sector can be volatile and accept the risk of significant price fluctuations
  • Are prepared to invest for the minimum investment timeframe of between 5 and 7 years, and understand that capital preservation is not guaranteed.
