Warakirri Concentrated Australian Equities Fund
Established in April 1996, the Warakirri Concentrated Australian Equities Fund (WCAEF) provides investors with access to one of Australia’s leading active Australian equities managers, Northcape Capital. Northape’s high calibre Portfolio Management team seek to invest in sustainable, high quality companies with attractive valuations listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). They believe that protecting capital in down markets is the foundation for superior returns over the long term and have a strong and practical approach to risk that focuses on avoiding companies that are structurally challenged, highly geared or have poor ESG standards. The WCAEF aims to outperform the broader market over the medium to long term. The fund typically holds 15-30 companies. All trust income is distributed quarterly to investors.
As at 30 September 2019, the WEF has returned +10.4% p.a. (after fees) since its 1996 inception. This is +1.3% p.a. (after fees) in excess of the S&P/ASX 300 Accumulation Index.
