Aussie equity manager appoints RE

09 August 2017 By Oksana Patron



Equity Trustees has been appointed the responsible entity (RE) to a Melbourne-based employee-owned Australian equities fund manager, JCP Investment Partners.

JCP, which was founded in 1998 and up till now only targeted institutional market, said it hoped to “open the door to retail investors” with the launch of its two new funds, offered via Equity Trustees.

The strategies JCP had chosen were the Small Companies Long Short Strategy and the Absolute Return Strategy which would focus on capital preservation.

Equity Trustees’ executive general manager, Harvey Kalman, said: “Its decision to launch two of these funds into the retail market is an exciting development, and Equity Trustees is pleased to be the RE for this dual offering.

“As RE, we take responsibility to ensure the fund operates within the legal framework for retail products, giving investors the certainty they need that their investment’s governance structure is secure.

“It relieves JCP of all the administrative detail and enables them to remain totally focussed on their investment strategy.”
