Investing in global growth assets to achieve long-term growth

Our Company

Global Masters Fund Ltd (GFL) was established for investors seeking long-term capital growth through investments in high-quality global assets. Berkshire Hathaway Inc, a New York Stock Exchange-listed investment corporation headed by famed businessman Warren Buffett, is Global Masters’ principal stake. The Global Masters portfolio also includes other global quality growth companies which are listed on various stock exchanges including the London Stock Exchange and the Australian Stock Exchange.

The primary source of value creation for Global Masters Shareholders is the capital appreciation of their shares since Berkshire Hathaway does not pay a dividend and any excess cash received by the Company after paying expenses is reinvested.

The Board takes the view that Global Masters’ international investments provide currency diversification to investors and therefore the Australia dollar/ US dollar currency exposure is not hedged. The resultant portfolio performance is monitored by GFL’s Board of Directors.
