Australian SmallCap


The Paradice Australian Small Cap strategy was established in 2001 by David Paradice. The team currently comprises of two senior portfolio manager/analysts Adam Harvey and Rishi Khilnani.

The Fund typically invests in 50-70 companies listed outside of the S&P/ASX 100, providing investors with an exposure to a diversified portfolio of emerging Australian businesses.

We believe equity markets are often inefficient due to investor emotion, short-term thinking and too much reliance on a single aspect of a company’s financial health – it’s profit and loss statement. Our key focus is on management, current and future cash flows and the quality of the balance sheet.

Our expertise lies in evaluating a company’s market position taking into account all factors from balance sheet, macroeconomic drivers through an extensive visitation program.


The Paradice Australian Small Cap Fund aims to outperform the S&P/ASX Small Ordinaries Total Return Index over the longer term, before the deduction of fees and taxes.
