Munro Partners

Melbourne-based Munro Partners (Munro) takes its name from the Scottish term for a mountain over 3,000 feet. The Munros of Scotland present challenging conditions to hikers, with just over 4,000 people recorded as climbing all 282 peaks, a process known as ‘bagging’ all the Munros. The team chooses to align themselves with the Munros as they see investing as a process of climbing all mountains…while the perspective from one peak may give you one view, it is only once you have considered the view from other peaks that the whole picture becomes clear.

Munro is an independent global equity manager with a core focus on growth equities. Via its proprietary investment process, worldwide network and unique knowledge base, Munro Partners seeks to invest in and benefit from some of the key structural changes that occur in our world today.

With a focus on absolute returns, Munro seeks to generate meaningful, absolute annualised returns to investors through the investment cycle, while maintaining a capital preservation mindset.

Munro is controlled by its partners who all work at the firm, a team of like-minded individuals with previous working relationships, who have come together to build, own and operate a successful global equities fund manager. All partners are significantly invested in the fund, ensuring strong alignment between partners and investors.
