PM hopes to lick the problem with LIC dilution

The West Australian - Jul 30, 2018

International share manager Paul Moore is shaking the tin for a new $105 million-plus listed investment company that he reckons will tackle a problem facing the sector. The problem the PM Capital boss refers to is listed investment company shares often trading on sharemarkets at big premiums to net asset backing at some stages of the investment cycle and then trading at big discounts at other stages. Mr Moore’s internationally focused PM Capital Global Opportunities Fund has been no stranger to a phenomenon that has seen listed investment company shares trade at 20 per cent premiums to net asset backing and 40 per cent discounts this decade.

Australian investors are too preoccupied with pouring funds into the local bourse given more attractive valuations offshore, with many also placing too much emphasis on "roulette like" macroeconomic factors. That's the view of PM Capital founder and chief investment officer Paul Moore, who believes in many cases valuations have outrun fundamentals in Australia and that political and economic shocks often prompt an overreaction in markets.

Funds get inventive on foreign exposure

The Australian - Jul 11, 2018

Step aside from the current market tussle between the bulls and the bears and we see that weaknesses have emerged in the main pooled equity savings structures for smaller investors — listed investment companies and exchange-traded funds. Such pooled equity structures are a vital part of many self-managed fund portfolios and self-managed funds dominate the retirement sector of superannuation. Listed investment companies are not working as well as we might have hoped and secondly if, as seems likely, the best returns are going to be achieved via stock selection in the looming environment, then exchange-traded funds (ETFs) might not be as effective as they have been in the past. In recent times, the pooled equity structures market has been dominated by ETFs that are usually related to an index and have the great advantage of having lower fees than most mutual funds and listed investment companies and they have provided good returns.
