Australian Small-Cap Investigator

The remit of Australian Small-Cap Investigator is simple: find and recommend the tiny hidden gems trading on the ASX.

Chances are you might not have heard of any of the small companies which Ryan Clarkson-Ledward and Murray Dawes will write to you about. But don’t be surprised if these companies start attracting headlines soon.

Yes. Small-caps are risky. Whether it’s a breakthrough medical firm, a mineral miner, or an unconventional energy play, you can lose money if the company hits a wall.

But — if all goes to plan — you could be rewarded handsomely. That’s why Ryan and Murray look for the best businesses trading on the ASX each and every month.

Australian Small-Cap Investigator, our longest-running advisory, has had a great deal of success since the newsletter was first published back in March 2007.

Readers could have made gains of 458% from Bow Energy, 338% from McPhersons, 220% from MEO Australia and 243% from LNG Ltd (amongst many others).

Of course, not every recommendation takes off for the moon.

In a volatile market, and especially in small-caps, it’s easy to make a mistake. But that’s where Ryan and Murray’s expertise and knowledge comes in.

In short: Australian Small-Cap Investigator is your entry into a game not all Australians know exist, with two genuine experts in your corner.

There’s another advantage too.

Most investment professionals don’t bother with small-caps. The research needed to find a good company is too much work for most. And it’s rarely worth their research dollars.

They make money based on the volume of shares traded. If a company only trades 15,000 shares a day, the commission isn’t worth it for the pros. Besides, finding good small-caps is not their core business. Their business is to sell you stocks, preferably big ones with big commissions.

There aren’t many financial professionals who have the time or inclination to devote themselves to small-caps like we do. That’s why Australian Small-Cap Investigator is so special.

Every recommendation is outlined in clear and precise detail. All the research is there to see. Join now for an opportunity to play in this exciting sector of the market.
