To proclaim themselves as the market’s sharpest minds and index-beating returns are delivered in disobedience of a dipping equity market, a new generation of fund managers are inclined on bold involvement and finely tuned ideas.
On Friday, Hearts and Minds Investment Leaders Conference in Melbourne extends to the third Sohn Australia, which has underpinned a listed investment company and celebrates managers’ best ideas that puts those within the reach of any investor.
Hearts and Minds Investments Limited closed at $2.54 above its $2.50-a-share offer price on Thursday and raised $500 million. It is backed by some of Australia’s most prominent philanthropists and wealthy investors. For their investment skill, the LIC will support Australian medical research in perpetuity because the underlying managers declined to charge fees.
The chairman of the LIC who is known for his role in building into one of Australia’s largest institutional managers Colonial First State Chris Cuffe said, ‘pitching their own ideas you get a dozen hand-picked fund managers and he doesn’t think they take it lightly.’
If you really want to network, it’s a who’s who of the investment world. Providing strong investment ideas, the Hearts and Minds conference has a track record.
