The Future Generation Investment Company will provide shareholders with a compelling investment proposition.

  • Access to prominent Australian fund managers: Unprecedented access to prominent Australian fund managers in a single investment vehicle
  • Exceptional value: Shareholders pay 0.0% management fees and 0.0% performance fees because fund managers are acting pro bono. Directors and other service providers have also agreed to act pro bono
  • Support Australian children at risk: As fund managers and service providers will provide their services pro bono, this creates a benefit which will allow the Company to donate 1.0% of assets per annum to Australian charities, including those supporting children at risk
  • Diversification: Diversified exposure to Australian equities through different investment styles and strategies
  • LIC structure benefits: Advantages of the Listed Investment Company model including fully franked dividends, stable closed-ended pool of capital and transparency and accountability through corporate governance structures
