Our differentiated approach to investing

Investing with CONNECT: More than just returns

We want to provide you with more than just returns. This means offering you peace of mind, knowing that a transparent approach backed by decades of academic research is powering every decision. Although markets can go up and down, our long term approach to investing gives you the confidence to remain in the markets during times of volatility.

1. We embrace market pricing

The market is an effective information-processing machine. Each day, the world equity markets process billions of dollars in trades between buyers and sellers—and the real-time information they bring helps set prices.

2. We practice smart diversification

The most effective means to manage risk is through broad diversification. While other partners may offer portfolios with securities across multiple market segments, at CONNECT, our portfolios can span over 10,000 securities across 44 countries, providing maximum diversification while focusing on capturing dimensions of higher expected returns.

3. We help our clients take a long-term view

Daily market news and commentary can challenge your investment discipline. Some messages stir anxiety about the future while others tempt you to chase the latest investment fad. When headlines unsettle you, consider the source and maintain a long-term perspective.

4. We value low cost and transparent solutions

CONNECT promises you a transparent, low cost fee structure. We believe in delivering a positive investment experience after fees. Unlike low cost index funds, which, by their nature, cannot outperform their benchmarks after fees, CONNECT portfolios are actively managed and attempt to outperform our benchmarks. By efficiently implementing a scientific approach to investing, we do not burden you with a substantial cost anchor, as traditional active managers do. This approach ensures you are well positioned to outperform the market after fees.

5. Finally, we focus on the dimensions of higher expected returns

CONNECT’s portfolios are not index trackers, our portfolios are actively managed and attempt to outperform our benchmarks every single day. Unlike traditional asset managers, we do not rely on guesswork and forecasts to gamble with your money. Decades of academic research points to systematic drivers of higher expected returns across equity and bond markets. By implementing the great ideas in financial science in a cost-effective manner, our diversified portfolios focus on capturing the returns from exploiting the dimensions of size, value and profitability across our underlying equity selection, and trade and credit in our bond selection.

Fee transparency

Low fees to maximise your performance

A lot of time is spent discussing investment manager performance. But there is one aspect of investing that can make more difference in portfolio returns than any other — fees.

Like you, we don’t like high fees.

At CONNECT, we are committed to transparency and efficiency. That means we will never charge any hidden fees. We only charge a maximum fee of 0.75% per annum across all our portfolios. This is the only fee you will ever be charged by CONNECT. The underlying fund may also charge a maximum of 0.46% ongoing charges which will be fully disclosed in the fund prospectus.
