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 eight 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.
