Snapshot of the new mFund
The Aoris International Fund provides investors with an ethically aware, concentrated portfolio (max 15 stocks) of high quality international companies. 

A high-quality business has an identifiable and understandable ‘moat’ or set of competitive advantages. These competitive strengths can include superior product or service quality; an esteemed brand and reputation; a corporate culture that attracts and retains the best people; scale; distribution strength or proprietary technology.  Aoris has a bias towards owning businesses that supply a product or service that is critical to its customer’s outcome, such as the quality of the final product or efficiency of their manufacturing operation; where the benefit is measurable; and whose price is modest relative to the value delivered. Aoris also look for breadth, a business that has been successful in many end markets and across many geographies is far more resilient than a narrow, one-trick pony.

The Portfolio Manager Stephen Arnold has been investing Internationally for over 28 years. Over six years to June 2017 Stephen managed the award winning $1.0bn+ Evans & Partners International Fund and generated returns which outperformed more than 90% of a broad peer group of international funds over the same period (Source: Zenith).

Investors can read the Owner’s Manual for a deep dive into the investment approach.

Fund objective
The Aoris International Fund aims to achieve absolute returns after fees of 8–12% p.a. over a market cycle, which they consider to be seven years. Aoris also expect to meaningfully outperform their benchmark (MSCI AC World Index ex-Australia Net).
