We Are A Manager Specialising In Investing In Equities
  • We offer regional and industry specific funds in addition to global portfolios.
  • Key members of the management team have equity in our business.
  • We emphasise success fees and total revenues.
  • We limit the number of individual accounts.
  • Sales and distribution functions are outsourced, wherever possible.  This is achieved through joint ventures with partners such as MLC Investments in Australia and Optima Fund Management in New York.
  • Where appropriate we outsource custody, settlement, client record keeping and accounting to State Street Australia Limited and our distributors, where possible.  The 'middle office' functions such as portfolio tracking and analysis are retained.
