Boutique international equities manager Wingate has announced its Global Equity Fund has been added to the Macquarie Wrap platform.
The fund invests in international companies and uses an option-based implementation process.
Wingate chief investment officer Chad Padowitz said the fund seeks to minimise downside risk.
“We incorporate an assessment of risk at multiple stages of the investment process, enabling us to take advantage of long-term investment opportunities during periods of short-term irrational market behaviour,” he said.
The fund has operated since 2005 and previously went under the name Wingate Opportunity Fund, investing both in global equities directly and through the use of derivatives.
Mr Padowitz said the fund looked to “provide stable income” without being relatively affected by market volatility.
“The Fund offers investors an option that limits downside risk while ensuring they don’t miss out on the market’s upside,” he said.
