FSIAIM manages funds across a diverse range of domestic and global asset classes, including Australian and global equities (such as global listed infrastructure and property securities), cash, fixed interest and credit. The firm’s key strategies are global listed infrastructure and global property securities. For global listed infrastructure, their investment process utilizes an active, bottom-up security selection process that aims to exploit market inefficiencies. They target undervalued securities where the market underestimates the level and quality of sustainable free cash flows. The firm looks for companies with robust business models and strong management execution. For global property securities, the investment process is primarily focused on bottom-up stock research. FSIAIM focuses on undervalued real estate securities with sound qualitative attributes and sustainable earnings growth. Securities are then ranked within each region according to valuation and qualitative measures. The investment team of regional specialists undertakes rigorous research process and proprietary valuation techniques identifying mispriced opportunities in a risk-adjusted framework in order to achieve outperformance objectives. Focused research effort in real estate markets that are under-researched provides further opportunities to add value to portfolios. A great deal of emphasis is placed on meetings with individual companies in order to help identify undervalued securities.
