Description


Perpetual researches companies of all sizes using consistent share selection criteria. Perpetual’s priority is to select those companies that represent the best investment quality and are appropriately priced. In determining investment quality, investments are carefully selected on the basis of four key investment criteria:
·     conservative debt levels
·     sound management
·     quality business and
·     recurring earnings.

Perpetual evaluates  companies that meet the investment approach,on a range of environmental, social, governance and ethical issues and labour standards to determine their suitability for inclusion/retention in, or divestment from the Fund. We seek to invest in quality companies that have satisfied our range of ethical and socially responsible investment criteria.
