OUR PHILOSOPHY

What the Medallion team stands by

We pride ourselves on being patient and vigilant. While companies don’t necessarily change in value over short periods of time, sentiment and share prices often do. For that reason, we have a conservative investment philosophy and will only look to deploy cash when the risk and reward profile makes sense.

INVESTMENT STRATEGY

The Medallion Financial investment approach

Medallion will look to employ a Top-Down and Bottom-Up investment approach which implores investors to take note of the global economy before delving into the fundamentals of specific businesses.

Portfolio
Management

portfolio management_red-01.png

Investors need to be highly selective
when managing the makeup of
their portfolios to ensure they are appropriately compensated in
proportion to the risk they take on.

Identifying businesses with attractive fundamentals

We will look to identify economic themes and fundamental changes in the business landscape and focus our attention towards the market sectors that offer the brightest outlook. It is our belief that quality businesses in growing sectors have a better probability of delivering reliable revenue, earnings, & dividend income growth.

The investment strategy focuses on businesses within the ASX 300, investing in a combination of direct shares, listed investment companies (LIC’s) and exchange traded funds (ETF’s) both with a local and international focus.

 

When investing in the stock market we are of the belief that it is imperative to employ a strategy, a plan of attack that has the potential to improve one’s chances of achieving success. By implementing and constantly adhering to a certain ‘screening’ process Medallion can narrow their focus towards opportunities that meet certain criteria.

"We pride ourselves on being patient & vigilant"

Share prices fluctuate for all kinds of reasons but while companies don’t necessarily change in value over short periods of time, sentiment often does. For that reason, we have a conservative investment philosophy and will only look to deploy cash when then risk and reward profile makes sense.

PLATFORMS & SECURITY

Highest level of Security for our clients

Our business model is structured to provide the highest level of security for clients. This includes segregation of client accounts and utilising industry leading strategic partners for certain functions such as securities dealing and settlements, cash management and custody assets.

share market_red-01.png

Share Market Services

For client convenience Medallion Financial will look to facilitate portfolio transactions through a number of trading platforms including CommSec, NAB and Open Markets. In each instance clients will have their own segregated trading account, HIN and cash settlement account established with one of Australia’s leading banking institutions.

We also offer clients automated portfolio administration and reporting services through various wealth management platforms. By mitigating the burden of administration of your investment portfolio, you and your adviser can focus on the more important matters.

Bonds_red-01.png

Bonds Services

Bonds which are purchased over-the-counter (OTC) are required to be held with a licensed custodian until the bond matures or the investor decides to sell.

As CHESS does not cater for OTC bonds, Medallion uses the custodial services provided by the National Australia Bank (NAB) who hold an electronic record of an investor’s beneficial ownership of a bond.

NAB will also provide a range of services including account administration, transaction settlements and reporting.

compliance_red-01.png

Compliance & Monitoring

We are regulated by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission
(ASIC) and as such we maintain risk and compliance practices to provide appropriate oversight and compliance with the requirements of a Corporate authorised representative of an Australian Financial Services Licence provider.
