Who we are

Perpetua is an independent, owner-managed boutique investment management firm.
We strive for excellence in performance, conduct and engagement and operate out of a purpose-driven culture.
We consistently employ a long-term investment philosophy that is sound, unwavering and that doesn’t follow the crowd.
Our investment process is rigorous, repeatable and pragmatic.

We will always remain true to who we are through being

Disciplined value investors
Partnership and relationship focused
Fair to clients and employees
Honest, transparent and humble
Committed to improving the lives of our clients and employees
Focused and determined
Diverse and inclusive


Perpetua is derived from the Latin word “perpetuus” meaning “continuous”, “enduring” and “lasting”. Like our name, our brand mark itself is unending and in a state of continuous, repetitive motion. This talks to our long-term, repeatable and steadfast investment approach.

How we invest

We are disciplined value investors.

This approach is designed to preserve capital and generate excellent investment returns over the long-term.

Our investment philosophy is centred on the bottom-up, fundamental research of companies.
We seek out mispriced, undervalued companies and invest with a long-term and patient view.
Our investment process ensures we invest according to the convictions of our research, not to benchmarks.
We are concerned with doing what is right for the long-term, not simply what is popular for now.
