Independent Investment Research has initiated coverage of Antipodes Global Investment Company (ASX:APL) a listed investment company that invests in a relatively concentrated long/short portfolio of global equities. Many domestic investors exhibit a home country bias, with Australian investor preferences often biased towards products and services that depend substantially on the performance of the Australian economy. APL provides the opportunity to help address this issue as well as access potentially stronger sources of growth and provide something of a hedge to the global competitive forces that may adversely impact some domestic companies. The portfolio is managed by Antipodes Partners Limited, a specialist funds manager with approximately $6 billion in funds under management and significant experience in global equities mandates.
