Global SmallCap


The Paradice Global Small Cap strategy was established in August 2010 by lead portfolio manager/analyst Kevin Beck. The team comprises of six investment professionals including Kevin.

The Fund typically invests in 60-80 global franchise businesses with strong net cash, low leverage, operating in a niche market.

We believe that protecting capital in down markets can provide investors with the best opportunity to compound their capital when markets begin to trend upwards.

The Fund employs a bottom up investment process with an absolute return view. We are investors in a very large investable universe (market capitalisation below US$5bn) looking to find investment opportunities anywhere in the world to create a best idea, benchmark agnostics portfolio.


The Paradice Global Small Cap Fund aims to outperform the S&P Global ex Australia and New Zealand Between USD1 Billion and USD5 Billion (AUD) Net Total Return Index in AUD over a three to five year period (after management costs and before tax).
