Fund managers returned 4.5% in the December quarter, which was 0.2% less than the S&P/ASX 300.

This March quarter has produced the best result from Australian share fund managers, since December 2008. The March quarter was notable because most fund managers outperformed the S&P/ASX 300 Index, whereas normally only about half do that, Mercer said.

In the year to March 31, the median fund returned 1.6%, whereas Dalton Nicol Reid’s Australian Equities High Conviction portfolio (previously named Incrementus) returned 6.8% and since inception has provided an annual return of 14.3%.

It is for this reason, elliotts have continued building their relationship and utilising the experience of the DNR Investment Team.
