Variety is the Spice of Life...the Unlisted Variety, especially

For clients who are eligible, our investment recommendations may include wholesale/sophisticated investment offers. These types of unlisted assets are our Perks specialty and are not normally made available to retail investors through mainstream structures.

The advantage of unlisted assets is that they can be more resilient to market fluctuations and provide unique investment opportunities.

Our investing principles are simple:

  • We believe effective diversification achieves strong risk adjusted longer term returns.
  • We do not favour a particular asset class or structure when searching for genuine investment opportunities.
  • We regularly undertake due diligence on wholesale offers. Our goal? To identify opportunities that are positioned to deliver better risk-adjusted returns to client portfolios.

Your personal financial objectives are unique to you. Whatever your priority – income, growth, tax effectiveness, volatility, liquidity – we work closely with you to identify which of these offers will be achieve your financial goals. From there, we conduct extensive research to construct client investment portfolios that will deliver on your financial objectives.

Get a Master of One (not a Jack-of-all-Trades)
