Wholesale Funds

The Arminius Capital ALPS Fund provides investors with exposure to all asset classes in the global macro universe. Arminius’ aim is to provide smooth positive annual returns with lower volatility and lower risk than concentrated single market/asset class exposure. Our absolute return investment methodology utilises a combination of fundamental, momentum and quantitative inputs. As an absolute return fund, the objective is to preserve the capital base across every 3 year rolling period.

The Arminius Capital ALPS Fund is a wholesale fund and therefore is only open to investors who qualify under ASIC criteria as wholesale, sophisticated or professional investors. If you qualify and wish to view the Information Memorandum of the fund, please contact info@arminiuscapital.com.au

Fund data and metrics available on:

The Global Fund was created for sophisticated investors who are looking to diversify part of their assets away from Australia. The Fund invests in global equities markets with the intention of giving investors exposure to economies whose cycles and driving forces are different from Australia’s. The Fund will also provide exposure to sectors which are not well represented in Australia, such as technology, aerospace, and pharmaceuticals.
Because Arminius Capital are strong believers in the preservation of their investors’ capital, the Global Fund will be restricted to investing in broad-based exchange traded funds (ETFs) and similar securities listed on the share markets of developed countries. In particular, the Fund will not undertake speculative investments. At present 82% of the Fund’s assets are held in ETFs with international exposure but hedged back to Australian dollars.

The SEED Fund was created in June 2019 for sophisticated investors who want to achieve superior equity returns by investing in environmentally conscious global businesses. SEED looks for profitable companies which are focused on growing sustainable industries and on remediating the environment. The name SEED stands for “Sustainable, Environmental, Ethical, Diverse”. Typically, the Fund will invest in sectors such as:
• Water supply and treatment
• Clean energy
• Sustainable agriculture and forestry
• Sustainable fisheries
• Pollution control equipment
• Green technology.

Because SEED is intended to generate superior investment returns, Arminius Capital applies its proprietary investment analysis techniques to companies which are listed on stock exchanges in the developed world. These techniques are mostly quantitative, but we also include qualitative factors such as an analysis of industry trends and an assessment of each company’s goals and achievements.
The SEED Fund is intended, over rolling five-year periods, to generate a total return above the MSCI World Index, which covers more than 1600 stocks in 23 developed markets (but excludes emerging markets such as China). As of 31 December 2020, this index had returned 12.8% over the preceding five years, with a standard deviation of 15.1%.

The Investment Management Fee is 1.0% of net asset value, calculated monthly, inclusive of GST. The Investment Performance Fee is 10.0% of the outperformance of the SEED Fund above the MSCI World Index, calculated monthly, with a high-water mark, and inclusive of GST.

Retail (IDPS & Retail Super) Strategy

The aim of the portfolio is to outperform the S&P/ASX 200 (TR) Index over rolling 5-year periods. The portfolio will also aim to deliver above market dividend income and lower volatility than the S&P/ASX 200 (TR) Index.

The investment strategy underlying this portfolio is founded on the belief that:

  • stocks with above-average dividend yields tend to outperform in the long term, provided that a filter for earnings quality is applied
  • low volatility stocks tend to outperform in the long term, especially if a valuation measure is added to the stock selection process.

The investment process starts with taking the constituents of the investment universe, the S&P/ASX200, and applying quantitative filters to screen out companies which have high volatility or low dividend yield or low earnings quality. The objective is not to maximise returns, but rather to eliminate high risk stocks.

The portfolio is designed for investors who:

  • are seeking exposure to a concentrated core portfolio of Australian equities with returns comprising of both capital appreciation and income;
  • accept the risk of price fluctuations particularly over periods less than the minimum investment timeframe and accept that capital preservation is not guaranteed; and
  • are prepared to invest for the minimum investment timeframe of five years.
