Quest Australian Equities Concentrated Portfolio

A ‘best ideas’ portfolio.

The Quest Australian Equities Concentrated Portfolio is portfolio of Australian Equities managed according to the Quest investment process. We limit the stock numbers in order to maximise both the quality of holdings and the weights held in each stock. In this way we seek to maximise potential returns.

We have an average holding of 30 stocks for all portfolios. A Quest portfolio will be more volatile than the average Australian equity fund with the potential to deliver larger absolute gains or losses.

Since inception in 2005, the portfolio return, before fees, is 11.7% pa* as at 31st March 2017. Over the same period the ASX 300 Accumulation Index has delivered an annualised return of 7.5% pa.
