Understanding a trading halt
How WiseTech continue to grow their market share
WiseTech founder and CEO discuss their revenue growth

When a publicly listed business requests for their shares to be placed in a trading halt, you know that an announcement with some substance (good or bad) isn’t far off.

That’s precisely what happened when WiseTech Global Ltd, a holding in several of our models, asked for their shares to be placed into a trading halt last week, when they were trading for a little over $36, and the very next day their share price jumped to $46.50.

One of the members of the AAN Investment Committee, Marc Venter, contacted one of our Australian share managers, Hyperion, to obtain comments from them in relation to WiseTech Global (WiseTech). We are happy to share with you that the stock is up an amazing 50% in the past month with Hyperion attributing this to the substantial growth the business is managing to source in the global logistics market.

WiseTech is a market leading software provider to the logistics industry and has more than 17,000 customers worldwide. According to Hyperion, the software WiseTech has created allowed logistic providers to operate more efficiently and is more flexible than the incumbent solutions, allowing WiseTech to continue to grow its market share.

WiseTech continues to innovate and has spent $438 million in product development and innovation, building their global capabilities across their team. Hyperion have stated that they believe WiseTech is only at the beginning of penetrating into the logistics industry and as such they see continued growth ahead.

WiseTech Founder and CEO, Richard White said, “Our strong CargoWise revenue growth in FY21 demonstrates industry recognition of our customer value proposition. We have continued to gain momentum in our market penetration with six new CargoWise global rollouts by large global freight forwarders secured in FY21, and the signing of FedEx post 30 June 2021. Importantly, we have a strong pipeline of potential new global customers, which we are actively pursuing. Our top line revenue growth, coupled with our ability to implement organisation-wide efficiencies and extract acquisition synergies, has enabled us to achieve a marked step change in operating leverage that is evident in our strong FY21 financial performance.”

“This is another example of our investment fund managers focusing on their core skills of seeking out future winners on the stock market’, says Marc Venter AAN Investment Committee Member.

Hyperion have been invested in WiseTech for over 3 years and have seen the stock move from around $10 to almost $50 over this timeframe. We continue to value our partnership with excellent managers such as Hyperion who have been assisting us to achieve fantastic outcomes for the AAN investment models. At the time of this post, WiseTech shares were trading at $49.09.

“How will I measure the value or success of receiving financial advice?”

We believe the true value of financial advice isn’t found in dollars and cents (although this is important too!) but in the peace of mind a financial plan can provide. It’s knowing where you want to go and how to get there, with a dedicated team behind you every step of the way.

“How do I know Evalesco is the right fit for me?”

We know the impact of good holistic financial advice can make and we have the life experience, technical capability and quality support team that can make that difference for you. We’ve empowered over 1000 families through the delivery of great financial advice, to be healthy, wealthy and happy.

“How do I know how much money I will need to retire?”

The amount of super you’ll need when you retire depends on your big costs in retirement and the lifestyle you want. The Associate of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) estimates for a single $44,224 a year and for couples $62,562 a year is how much you may need. This is only an indicator and our advisers assess everyone’s individual circumstances.

“Why should I pay for financial advice?”

The fees we charge for financial advice is only a fraction of the value we derive for our clients, meaning our clients are always better off after seeing us. Rarely do we encounter a new client invested appropriately for their needs, with adequate risk protection, structuring and estate planning provisions in place. Even small tweaks to a financial plan over a long period of time can result in drastically better outcomes for our clients which eclipses the fees of the financial advice. Additionally, you can opt-out of an ongoing fee arrangement at any time.

“How do you charge for your services?”

In our discovery meeting with you our advisers discuss the initial advice fee and the ongoing fees associated with our services.

“What is the process for getting our own personal financial plan?”

After our initial phone call to discuss why you are seeking a financial adviser, we arrange a discovery meeting that outlines what is important to you, your current position, our areas of advice, our approach. We then present a Statement of Advice (SoA) to discuss your goals and our recommendations and go through the steps of how to proceed to the implementation stage. After signing the SoA, we discuss your questions, get you to sign the authority to proceed and complete any application forms before implementing the recommendations detailed in the SoA.

“Should I pay more off my mortgage or put more money into super?”

One thing to consider is the interest rate on your home loan in comparison to the rate of return on your super fund. Before making a decision, it’s also important to weigh up your stage in life, particularly your age and your appetite for risk. Whatever strategy you choose you’ll need to regularly review your options if you’re making regular voluntary super contributions or extra mortgage repayments. As bank interest rates move and markets fluctuate, the strategy you choose today may be different from the one that is right for you in the future
