A Value Focused, Research Driven Investment Management Firm

I started Chance Voight Investment Partners Limited (CVI Partners) almost four years ago in early 2018 to build on the investment expertise I’ve gained from a decade’s full-time experience as an equities investor, investing my own money in the Australian Sharemarket (ASX). My intention in starting an investment firm was to develop an Australasian hedge fund operation operating across New Zealand and Australia which would predominantly focus on ASX listed equities investments.

Ten years ago, I made a small fortune within the space of a few months by making “off-market” offers for the shares of companies listed on the NZX. That money (about $4 million) set me on the path to being a full-time professional investor in the Australian share market. These offers propelled me forward and gave me the time and space to develop my investment style which has led to the formation of Chance Voight.

“We're on the hunt for 'mispriced' situations where we can buy the shares of a worthwhile business at some super discount to its near-term future value.”

I’ve evolved a contrarian, bargain hunting view of equities markets. We’re on the hunt for ‘mispriced’ situations where we can buy the shares of a worthwhile business at some super discount to its near-term future value.

“We aim to never spend an investor dollar unless we believe we are buying at least two dollars of value.”

The cornerstone of our investment view is that we aim to never spend an investor dollar unless we believe we are buying at least two dollars of value. If we can’t find an investment that passes this test then we simply wait until we do. Experience has shown us that we don’t have to be involved across the whole market and that we’re better to concentrate on a handful of high quality, high probability situations.
