"Antipodes’ pragmatic approach encompasses everything we do as a team, from analysing industries and companies, to communicating and collaborating amongst our colleagues and with our clients"
Michael Li, Investment Analyst
Antipodes is a global asset manager with a 25+ strong investment team based in Sydney and London.We opened our doors in 2015 and now have over A$8 billion in assets under management. We aspire to grow our clients’ wealth over the long term by generating absolute returns in excess of the benchmark, but beneath market levels of risk. We offer a pragmatic value approach across long-short and long-only global equity strategies. Our approach is characterised by the holistic consideration of cyclical, structural and macro/socioeconomic factors that is enhanced by a combination of qualitative and quantitative disciplines. Our aim is to identify investments that offer high margins of safety, multiple ways of winning, and then build high conviction portfolios with an emphasis on capital preservation. Culture is of vital importance to us. We combine well over 100 years of investment experience with a restless energy and desire to challenge accepted norms, push boundaries and develop new and effective methodologies. The name ‘Antipodes’ not only alludes to the global scope of our business, it captures our belief in the power of opposites - the value of differing and sometimes conflicting opinions and ideas in discovering new avenues of opportunity. This is a team that thrives, both ethically and intellectually, on the embrace of diversity.
