Magellan

Magellan Financial Group is an Australia-based specialist funds management group.

Magellan is establishing itself as an independent specialist funds management group and aims to develop into a world-class funds management firm. Its primary operating business, Magellan Asset Management Limited, has established globally-focused investment funds that are run on behalf of institutional investors, high-net-worth families, and Australia- and New Zealand-based retail investors. Magellan Asset Management Limited currently offers investment expertise in global equities and in global infrastructure. It may, in the future, offer further complementary services.

Magellan believes that a compelling case exists for investors to diversify part of their wealth into high-quality global investment opportunities.

Magellan’s investment philosophy is straightforward. Each of the company’s funds will seek to invest in a portfolio of outstanding global companies (those with highly-attractive business characteristics), ideally at a discount to their intrinsic values, as assessed by Magellan’s investment team. We will not engage in speculative activity.

To avoid conflicts of interest, the only form of remuneration Magellan receives from its funds will be investment management performance fees. Magellan will not charge any arranging, transaction, mergers and acquisitions, advisory or similar fees to any of its funds. We aim to be transparent in our dealings in order that investors can be assured of our integrity.
