Selected Shareholders help foster the transfer of knowledge between generations, provide a way for Shareholders to actively engage in the Group and remain mentally stimulated, and provide portfolio companies with access to strategic advisers and mentors that would otherwise be inaccessible.
It helps us make better investment decisions, get better returns from our investments, and bridge the SME funding and knowledge gap to the betterment of Australia as whole.
To be appointed, a Selected Shareholder must be a person who, in the Board’s view, possesses appropriate skills and acumen to conduct a thorough assessment of potential investments or to provide ongoing advice, guidance and mentoring.
Any Shareholder may apply to the Company to become a Selected Shareholder. We welcome your participation, but applications should not be made lightly.

The Board and management apply a rigorous selection process in determining whether a Shareholder is appropriate to be appointed a Selected Shareholder. This process includes reviewing the applicant’s previous experience, interviewing the applicant to determine suitability, requiring the applicant to undergo training (where applicable) and the applicant agreeing to be bound by all Company policies including our investment philosophy, confidentiality obligations and the Company securities trading policy.
In particular, Selected Shareholders will be subject to the same trading restrictions that apply to the company’s Board and management.
Acceptance of an application to become a Selected Shareholder is at the sole discretion of the company.
To ensure the integrity of our business model, preserve confidential and potentially price-sensitive information, and maintain compliance with applicable laws and the rules of the ASX, we vet each application and reserve the right to reject (or terminate) any application at any time. An investor seeking to become a Selected Shareholder should seek their own advice before applying to ensure they are familiar with all relevant legal and compliance obligations.
