Exclusive equities fund

Multi-manager approach

Our strategy is to invest in a variety of funds selected on your behalf that aim for solid growth over the long-term while buffeting market corrections.  We carefully select a mix of skilled investment managers who specialise in active share market investment and risk management.

Multi-manager portfolios aim for superior, lower-risk outcomes over the long term.  These equities strategies do not rely on the direction of the market to generate returns.

Providing investment diversity

We do all the legwork by selecting the underlying managers. Our tailored fund provides you with access to a pre-assembled portfolio of actively managed Australian equities funds.

With our YBR Protected Equities Fund, we are aiming for returns that outperform the rate of inflation by 5%-8% per annum, after fees over rolling five year periods.


This fund has a minimum initial investment of $10,000. There is flexibility to make daily withdrawal requests, and fees are variable.
  • For management and administration of the fund, we charge a fee of 1.19% - 1.45% p.a. (dependent upon investor type).
  • There is a performance fee of 10.5% of the return, provided a minimum return is first achieved.

Things to know

  • Investment value will vary: It is important to know that the overall value of the fund will vary over time, which is why we suggest you invest for at least five years to allow your investment to grow.
  • Returns are variable: Over the life of the fund, returns will vary. Don’t count on future returns based upon past returns.
  • Investment objective: While our aim is to offer solid returns with lower risk, it is important to understand that your investment and returns are not formally protected or guaranteed in any way. Investing involves risk, and you can lose as well as make money.
  • Understanding risk: Whilst the fund does not use leverage, derivatives or short selling, the underlying investment funds may use these techniques in order to manage risk and/or gain exposure to investments.
