DNR Capital’s Australian Emerging Companies Fund has been added across six investment platforms, including BT Wrap, Netwealth and HUB24.
The fund has also joined BT Panorama, Macquarie Wrap and Praemium.
It offers investors exposure to 20 to 45 Australian smaller companies identified through a disciplined bottom-up research process.
Robert White, DNR Capital chief executive, commented: “The fund was launched due to strong investor demand for access to our proven investment philosophy at the smaller end of the market cap spectrum.”
Sam Twidale, lead portfolio manager for the strategy, added there is a “vast dispersion” among small-cap companies.
“For the past 17 years, DNR Capital has successfully identified businesses with strong quality characteristics in the large-cap space,” Mr Twidale said.
“We are certainly finding that this same process is equally, if not more, effective at the smaller end of town.”
In November, the fund’s performance exceeded its benchmark, the S&P/ASX 200 Small Ordinaries Accumulation Index, by 5.32 per cent per annum since inception in August last year.
