Superannuation & Pension Investors
Warakirri New Dimensions Fund
The Warakirri New Dimensions Fund (WNDF) manages assets from the perspective of an accumulation phase Australian superannuation fund investor, assuming a 15% tax rate.
The WNDF is a multi-manager fund of seasoned Australian equities managers with concentrated, "best ideas" mandates generally unique to the fund (typically each manager will hold less than 25 stocks in their portfolio).
These mandates offer a higher tolerance for tracking error and therefore allow the underlying managers to fully demonstrate their skills by choosing their highest conviction stocks with less pressure to "hug" the benchmark.
As at 31 December 2016, the WNDF has returned +10.0% p.a. (after fees) since its 2002 inception. This is +2.0% p.a. (after fees) in excess of the S&P/ASX 300 Accumulation Index.
