Hi All,
Newbie here. Wondering if anyone has a view on Hyperion Asset Management.
They have three funds - Global Growth, Australian Growth and Small Companies. The long term fund performance looks great.
Multiple articles on the web commend them on being one of few funds that consistently outperforms the benchmark. They have also won multiple awards.
Wondering if anyone has any thoughts or opinions on them.
Thanks !

Looks like they're performing well, on the surface of it. Need to compare like-to-like funds for a better perspective and check fees. Would also pay to compare ETFs which are another way of investing in a basket of assets in niche sectors up to global stocks. I held a number of Platinum funds for a few years on the basis of past performance, and I lost money.

Thanks @Sean K. Really appreciate your insights.

As a disclaimer of sorts, I don't do managed funds because my Super does that. I'm not even buying any of the big Mums and Dads stocks at the moment, because my Super does that too. Unless there's a significant crash, my $$ are deployed to the outliers where you can win or lose quite significantly. But, you need to be watching the market closely to take advantage of peaks and troughs to make that work. Good luck.

Thank you. I understand and agree.
I already have exposure to property and, like you, have my super in the stock market. I'm looking now to put some money in a higher risk higher return investment that doesn't require my active involvement, and also is liquid (unlike property and super). The Hyperion funds seemed to tick the right boxes.

My memory of Hyperion was that their best days were when they were young, fresh and, most important, small. That is when outperformance is so much easier to achieve. Nimble and all that.

I tried to discover how much FUM there is, now, but found the website self promotional and obsfuscatory.

Pity. Red Flag.

One fund is listed on the ASX and so investors have the option to buy units there or directly with the Responsible Entity.
Is there any advantage of one over the other ?
