Lennox Australian Small Companies Fund

Lennox Capital Partners, a newly established boutique under the Fidante brand, has launched its small-cap strategy, the Lennox Australian Small Companies Fund (the Fund).

The Fund will be seeded by the firm's founding principals, James Dougherty and Liam Donohue, and Third Link Growth Fund, an Australian fund of funds founded by industry veteran Chris Cuffe.

Commenting on the launch, Donohue said: "Investing in Australian small caps can offer the potential for strong returns from high quality and fast growing companies, in addition to diversification from traditional index heavy weights. Our flagship small cap strategy offers long term investors a great opportunity to benefit from this vibrant and growing part of the Australian economy."

Dougherty added: "We invest in businesses with earnings that are forecastable and real. This approach aims to protect investors from the volatility associated with small companies while capturing the strong returns that are available in this segment of the equity market."
