Through three crises – namely the Dot Com Bust (early-2000s), the Global Financial Crisis (2007-2009) and Global Pandemic (2020-ongoing) – Leithner & Co has provided consistent, long-term returns to its shareholders.
Each $1 invested on 30 June 1999, if the dividends were reinvested, would by 31 December 2020 have grown to $5.11, which equates to a compound rate of growth of 8.3% per annum.
Our consistency is driven by our painstaking research. This has resulted in 92% of realised investments made between 30 June 1999 and 31 December 2020 generating profits for our shareholders.
As everyone knows, past performance is no guarantee of future returns. However, our shareholders take comfort in the fact that we will continue to implement an investment philosophy that has served us well through good times and bad.
DISCOVER OUR DIFFERENCE
We are a low-cost, low-risk company that seeks consistent returns. We levy no investment management fees and management receives only a share of realised profits.
OUR INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY
We believe in creating wealth through value investing. We strive to deliver long-term consistent growth, underpinned by trust and transparency.

WHAT OUR SHAREHOLDERS HAVE TO SAY
“Leithner & Co’s innate conservatism and Buffet-ism were reassuring as my wife and I moved towards retirement. They offer a personal relationship with shareholders and the clear articulation of a conservative approach rather than get-rich-quick. We’ve been shareholders for more than 20 years because we’re satisfied with their clear reasoning for the particular portfolio of assets and explanation of any changes in holdings.”
“There have been many ‘value investing’ funds in Australia. However from my research they aren’t very good at what they do – they seemingly have much more aggressive conceptions of what value is, and accordingly suffer the consequences in terms of poor returns. I invested in Leithner and Co because its structure and approach is 100% in line with my own beliefs, a traditional/strict ‘value investing’ entity and one that does this well. They don’t charge levies on their management of funds either.”
Western Australian shareholder
“I became a shareholder in Leithner & Co because term deposits earn such a terrible rate of return. Their philosophy and appreciation of the bigger systemic risks make them different. Others should consider becoming shareholders of Leithner & Co because they have a deep understanding that share markets won’t continue to go up in a straight line when global economies have such a massive debt burden and there are a lot of credit-fuelled bubbles just waiting to pop.”
