Platinum Asset Management

One of Australia’s most trusted international investment managers

It is common for investors to choose to invest their savings across different types of assets: cash, shares, government bonds, and real estate; and many choose to entrust their savings to fund managers to benefit from different strategies and styles of investing.

Platinum is an Australia-based investment manager that focuses on one asset class – international shares, or, more simply put, we provide portfolios of listed companies from around the world. Platinum offers only one core investment style – we seek out companies whose true worth and prospects are yet to be fully recognised by the market. Past performance shows that our approach is one that has worked in different economic climates and withstood the test of business cycles. Choosing among our products will depend on whether you want general global exposure or would prefer a more tailored exposure to a geographic area or particular industry group.

See www.platinum.com.au for for information.
