These performance figures have driven a net return of +7% for the 3 month rolling period ending 31 May 2020 and includes the full impact of March’s savage equity market sell-off.

Driving these strong numbers were stocks such as Paradigm Bio-pharmaceuticals (PAR.ASX +79%), National Tyre and Wheel (NTD.ASX +44%), Ora Banda Mining (OBM.ASX +61%), Cash Converters (CCV.ASX +43%) and a number of uranium positions.

The Collins St Value Fund is 5 star rated by Morningstar (since inception and for the rolling 3 year period to 31 May 2020) and is ranked #1 in its category based on performance over the same 3
year period.

In making this announcement Collins St Asset Management also note that:

  • In February 2020 we announced our case for ASX listed uranium stocks (media release here).
    • Uranium has, thus far, been the strongest performing commodity across the board
      this calendar year, up 34%.
  • In March 2020 we announced that we had significant cash holdings, a range of ideas that we’d been researching and were awaiting for the right opportunity (media release here).
    • During May we started deploying capital into the market across a range of bespoke and deeply discounted opportunities.
    • One example of a such a transaction, which we independently originated, negotiated and executed with ASX listed gold company Nova Minerals (NVA.ASX) was announced to the ASX last week and can be accessed here

  • In April we announced that Value investing was not dead and that for boutique fund managers such as ourselves there were significant opportunities to out-perform the market (media release here).
    • We have proven this with not only our +16% net out-performance of the ASX All Ordinaries Index over the last 3 months, but also our +12% net returns since inception in February 2016 – out-performing the All Ordinaries Index by +4% net per annum over that time period.

About the Collins St Value Fund
Ranked #1 out of 97 peers over the 3 years to 31 May 2020 based on after fee returns by Morningstar, the Collins St Value Fund brings a distinctively different approach to the management of Australian equities.

Net returns since inception in 2016 of 12% p.a. have been underpinned by a range of bespoke convertible note, take-over arbitrage, special dividend and management buy-out investments, alongside unconstrained access to any ASX listed stock. This leads to a distinctively different portfolio which is presently invested in a selection of uranium, gold, financial services and pharmaceutical companies amongst others.

Investments in the Collins St Value Fund attracts absolutely no fixed management fees. The only remuneration the Fund Manager receives is success based and requires that investors make money before they do.

Put simply, if the unit price doesn’t go up, the investor pays no management fees. This incentivises capital preservation and a close eye on capacity. Alignment of interests doesn’t get any closer than that!
