Warakirri Australian Equities Pensions & Charities Fund

Overview

Established in June 2008, the Warakirri Australian Equities Pensions & Charities Fund (WAEPCF) is a multi-manager Australian equities fund managed from the perspective of a tax-exempt investor that can utilise franking credits. It has been designed specifically for superannuation members in pension phase and charitable investors.

Warakirri believes that investment strategies should differ when managing Australian equities for tax-exempt investors. As such, the Fund invests with high quality Australian equities investment managers that, drawing from experience, Warakirri has identified as having the ability to manage tax-exempt investments. The fund typically holds 100+ companies. All fund income is distributed quarterly to investors.
