Choose from two unique access points

Investors can access the Magellan Global Fund through two distinct unit classes. These two unit classes offer investors the same global equities investment strategy, but have their own benefits which you will need to consider:
 

Open Class Units are quoted on the ASX (ASX: MGOC) and also directly available for purchase and redemption with the fund itself. Open Class Units should generally trade on the ASX close to the prevailing Net Asset Value and you can buy and sell units off market with the fund at the prevailing Net Asset Value.

Closed Class Units are only quoted on the ASX (ASX: MGF). Closed Class units can trade at a premium or a discount to the Net Asset Value. If you participate in the Distribution Reinvestment Plan you can reinvest your distributions at a 7.5% discount to the Net Asset Value. This discounted benefit is only offered to holders of Closed Class Units.

To find out more about your preferred unit class, and for information on how to invest, please select either the Open Class or Closed Class toggle below.

More about iNAV
More information about iNav

The iNAV reflects the estimated NAV per Open Class Unit updated in respect of portfolio securities or equivalent securities that have live market prices during the Trading Day and for foreign exchange movements. If there are no stocks held by the Fund that have live market prices during the ASX Trading Day, movements in the iNAV will only reflect foreign exchange movements. The iNAV will not be updated for market-based movements such as movements in stock market indices.

Magellan has engaged ICE Data Indices, LLC and Solactive AG as iNAV calculation agents to independently calculate and disseminate an iNAV. Both iNAVs are freely available to investors. From time to time there may be differences between the two iNAVs as a result of different calculation methodologies or timing of the data.

Investment philosophy

The Magellan Global Fund seeks to invest in outstanding companies at attractive prices, while exercising a deep understanding of the macroeconomic environment to manage investment risk.

Magellan perceives outstanding companies to be those that are able to sustainably exploit competitive advantages in order to continually earn returns on capital that are materially in excess of their cost of capital.

While Magellan is extremely focused on fundamental business value, it is not a typical 'value' investor. The Magellan Global Fund will invest in companies that have relatively high price-to-earnings and price-to-book multiples, provided that their businesses are outstanding and their shares are trading at an appropriate discount to their assessed intrinsic value. Equities that appear undervalued on the basis of a low price-to-earnings or price-to-book multiples will often prove to be poor investments if the underlying business is fundamentally weak and exhibits poor returns on capital.

Magellan focuses on risk-adjusted returns, rather than benchmark-relative returns. As a result, the Magellan Global Fund's investment process is designed to generate an unconstrained, concentrated portfolio of high-quality companies.

Magellan believes that an appropriately structured portfolio of 20 to 40 investments can provide sufficient diversification to ensure that investors are not overly correlated to any single company, industry-specific or macroeconomic risk.

Portfolio construction

The Magellan Global Fund's investment process integrates three key disciplines:

Intensive bottom-up stock analysis and industry research is undertaken in order to identify outstanding companies. This involves the assessment of potential investments against key quality criteria, as well as assessments of their intrinsic value. Magellan uses a proprietary ranking tool, the Magellan Conviction Scoring Matrix, to rank these companies based on these factors. This process enables the portfolio to be weighted towards higher conviction ideas (on a risk-adjusted basis).

Magellan's detailed macroeconomic analysis is overlayed during portfolio construction, alongside the application of both fixed and dynamic risk limits. This process ensures that the portfolio is not overly exposed to aggregation risk (risk which arises from correlated portfolio positions) or macroeconomic event risk. Macroeconomic event risk can be a significant source of negative returns for investors. Magellan will make significant changes to the portfolio if it believes that macroeconomic events could lead to significant and sustained loss in value for investors. Such events would include a financial crisis, a sustained oil price shock, a global pandemic or a major global conflict.

FAQs

You have the choice of either buying units on the Securities Exchange (Ticker: MGOC) via your stockbroker/online broker or applying directly with the Responsible Entity by sending an Application Form to our unit registry.

If you hold your investments via an investment administration platform, you should consult your financial adviser who will be able to assist you in investing in the Fund.

There are important differences between investing in the Fund through the Securities Exchange or by applying directly with the Responsible Entity, including the price you will receive. You should read the PDS before making any decision on how to invest in the Fund.

If you invest on the Securities Exchange there is no initial minimum investment amount.

If you invest directly with the Responsible Entity by sending us an Application Form, the minimum initial investment is A$10,000. Additional investments can be made into an existing account at any time. No minimum applies for additional investments by BPAY. A minimum of $5,000 applies to other payment methods.

Your HIN or SRN can be found on the top right hand corner of your holding statement and other shareholder communications. You will typically have a HIN if you bought your units on the Securities Exchange through a stockbroker. You will typically have an SRN if you applied for unit directly with the Responsible Entity.

A HIN is a Holder Identification Number issued by your stockbroker. It is a unique number used to link all your holdings, stocks, shares, and not specific to just Magellan. A HIN is 11 characters long. It starts with an ‘X’ followed by 10 digits. For example: X0001235898

An SRN is a Securityholder Reference Number issued by the Fund’s Unit Registry and is your unique identifier in the Fund. An SRN is 11 characters long and starts with an ‘I’ followed by 10 digits. Example: I00874500369. Your SRN will be stated on your first confirmation statement and partly masked for subsequent statements.

If you have invested directly with the Responsible Entity and have chosen to receive communication via email, you will receive confirmation of your investment within 3 business days from when our unit registry (Mainstream Fund Services) has received your correctly completed Application Form (or notice of additional investment) and cleared application monies. Please note that if you choose to invest by cheque or request us to process a direct debit, it may take up to two business days (in the case of a cheque) and three business days (in the case of a direct debit) for your application monies to clear. If you have chosen to receive communication via mail, please allow for postage time on top of the 3 business days from receipt of your correctly completed Application Form (or notice of additional investment) and cleared application monies.

During distribution periods (at the start of July and the start of January for some funds) receipt of your confirmation statement may be delayed by 10-15 business days.

If you have purchased your units on the Securities Exchange, your stockbroker or online broker will issue the transaction confirmation.

Yes, investors can reinvest their distributions to obtain additional units in the fund without having to pay the cost of brokerage. If you wish to participate in the Distribution Reinvestment Plan (DRP), you can either update your election in the Unit Registry portal, available at magellan.mainstreamfs.com/login or complete the DRP Election Form located at on the website at www.magellangroup.com.au/funds/forms-pds/.

If you have a Holder Identification Number (HIN) with your stockbroker or online broker

This is a standard process which your stockbroker or online broker can assist you with.

 

 

To sell your units on the Securities Exchange….
If you have a Securityholder Reference Number (SRN) or Investor Number
You can provide your SRN to certain stockbrokers who can sell your units on your behalf.
If your stockbroker does not offer this service, you will need to ask your stockbroker to convert or transfer your holding onto a HIN.  This is a standard process which your stockbroker can assist you with. You can then instruct your stockbroker to sell your units on the Securities Exchange.
