In June 2021, Third Link Growth Fund retained a ‘Recommended’ rating from leading research house, Zenith Investment Partners¹ in the Australian Shares - Large Companies sector. This sector is traditionally one of the most competitive in the investment landscape.

Zenith research showed that Third Link achieved its objective and outperformed the benchmark over the most recent five-year period. Third Link was placed in the second quartile, ranking 33rd overall, when ranked against 106 other funds over rolling five-year periods. The Fund has maintained volatility below that of the benchmark and median manager since inception, and despite the Fund's growth nature, has shown a greater consistency of outperformance in falling markets over the long term.

“Zenith believes the Fund is a compelling offering due to its access to highly rated fund managers. In addition, given the Fund's charitable aim, we believe it to be an appealing option for socially conscious investors. The rebate of performance fees to the Fund has the potential to have a significant positive impact on the long term return for investors,” said Zenith.
