Brief description Australian investment managers currently manage $A904 billion in assets. Given that Australians compulsorily commit 9% of their salaries this figure is set to rise rapidly. Developing a better understanding of the performance and trading activities of these managers offers significant benefit to all Australians. The growth in assets under management has forced managers to invest in alternative assets such as small cap stocks. Small companies have been described as the engine room of economic growth, promoting employment, national prosperity, and innovation and entrepreneurship. Our research considers a significant and growing part of Australia's national economy.
