Case Study: NAB Asset Management

NAB Asset Management boutique, Fairview Equity Partners, was one of the first institutions of size to invest in Nanosonics’ next generation Trophon device

Nanosonics landmark Trophon is used to thoroughly clean ultrasound probes. Bacterial and viral Infections such as HPV are eliminated through this wonderful Australian developed technology. Current probe cleaning methods such as wipes are simply not effective. Trophon is the solution. As long term investors, Fairview was one of the first institutions of size to back management with equity capital to develop the next generation of probes.


How the team works together

Fairview had been analysing this stock for a seven years before we invested. We waited for clinical acceptance to be evident in the key US market. Sometimes it pays to be patient.


Key figures

  • An 18% productivity gain in ultrasound clinics,
  • A great solution for society to the 12.9% of probes that currently have pathogenic bacteria.
  • A four fold increase in share price since Fairview first invested.
