Investing in opportunities.
For you. For good.

We invest more than $3 billion in undervalued Australian and global growth companies on behalf of over 80,000 shareholders. We also make a difference in the community, primarily as an advocate for retail investors and as the creator and lead supporter of the Future Generation companies.

Kate Thorley Chief Executive Officer
"We are passionate about making a difference. For our shareholders, our community and our team."

Our listed investment companies

To find the best opportunities, we created our own.

Our preferred listed investment company (LIC) structure provides a permanent, stable pool of capital. As a result, an investment team that manages capital on behalf of an LIC’s shareholders can make rational investment decisions based on sound investment strategies. Investors in LICs also benefit from fully franked dividends paid over time. Naturally, as a listed entity, an LIC must comply with rigorous corporate governance and strict regulations, safeguarding shareholders’ interests and providing transparency.

How to invest with us.

Wilson Asset Management has an investment management agreement with six LICs. Shares in our LICs are listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). To become a shareholder, simply buy shares through a stockbroker, financial adviser, wrap or platform.
