Warakirri Charitable Diversified Equities Fund


Established in June 2014, the Warakirri Charitable Diversified Equities Fund (WCDEF) is a multi-manager Australian equities fund designed and managed for charitable and tax-exempt investors. Based on our longer running fund, the Warakirri Australian Equities Pensions & Charities Fund, the WCDEF takes advantage of Warakirri’s long-standing expertise in developing multi-manager funds and incorporates the Warakirri Ethical Overlay.

The WCDEF provides a diversified exposure to high quality Australian equities managers identified by Warakirri as having the ability to manage tax-exempt investments. The fund typically holds 100+ companies. All fund income is distributed quarterly to investors.


As at 31 December 2017, the WCDEF has returned +10.6% p.a. (net of fees, after franking credits) since its June 2014 inception. This has been +1.5% p.a. (after fees) in excess of its benchmark, an after-tax version of the S&P/ASX 300 Accumulation Index assuming tax-exempt status.
