As our Blue Chip portfolio continues to nearly double the ASX benchmark, we aim to combine a macro view with our value process.

Fast growing Small Caps provide arguably an even more important counter to the destructive consequences of inflation. A combination Blue Chips and Small Caps is what makes for a benchmark beating portfolio in these uncertain times.
