Aiming for strong, long term capital growth.

Investing for strong, long term capital growth requires a strategy that invests in stocks that are fundamentally healthy, that can ride out short term volatility and deliver strong capital appreciation over the long-term. We do this by investing in the numbers – applying our quantitative methodology to construct a portfolio of liquid Stock Doctor Star Growth Stocks. These are among the most financially healthy, high quality growth stocks on the ASX that deliver strong long-term capital returns – a great outcome for investors and SMSFs.

As at 31 Jan 2024

The Lincoln Australian Growth Fund has employed a tactical position aimed to reduce risk/volatility in our managed fund portfolio. Our defensive strategy was executed in August 2023 which involved the Fund hedging its equity exposure with the Beta Shares Australian Bear ETF (BBOZ). Our decision has the effect of neutralising the impact of market fluctuations on the unit prices for our investors.

What this means is that we have taken the broad market moves out of our total return profile. Therefore, our unitholders won’t participate in market rallies, but likewise, they will not be impacted by market corrections. The unit prices are now solely determined by how well the stocks that we invest in perform relative to the broader market. If they outperform, unit prices will go higher and vice-versa.

Many of our clients that know me personally, are surprised with my bearish view and the tactical portfolio positioning, as I am usually 100% invested and block out the noise. But this time, I truly believe the market has not priced in the lag effect that a higher interest rate environment will have on company earnings and the subsequent ramifications that could follow for markets.

The extraordinary rally that transpired to end 2023 has had an impact on our relative returns to the ASX All Ordinaries Index. The Fund team are prepared to endure the short term underperformance because we have high conviction that capital preservation tactics are the prudent measure to take in a highly uncertain economic environment.

Here are some of our most frequently asked questions.
Am I locked into my investment?

No, the Growth Fund has no minimum investment timeframe and you will not be penalised if you decide to redeem your funds within a short period of time. But we suggest a minimum of 5-years to allow an adequate timeframe for the Fund to deliver on its long-term objectives.

How is the performance fee calculated?

The performance fee is 20% of the amount by which the Fund’s performance exceeds the All Ordinaries Accumulation Index. A high-water mark ensures investors do not pay fees until periods of underperformance are fully recouped.

Are there any up-front or exit fees?

No, our Growth Fund have no up-front or exit fees. This does not take into account buy-sell spreads, which represent the estimated transaction costs incurred when buying or selling underlying assets in relation to investment options. The difference between the investment option buy prices and the sell prices is the total buy-sell spread for that option.
