RAM targets HNW clients with new portfolio

30 November 2017 By Oksana Patron



Real Asset Management (RAM) has launched a bespoke multi-asset portfolio aimed at high net worth (HNW) clients, including Asian clients who have completed significant investment visa (SIV) requirements.

RAM Australia’s chief executive, Scott Kelly said the launch was a natural progression as the firm’s Australian and international client base evolved.

The company addressed its new portfolio in particular to HNW Asian clients who were in the process to obtain Australian residence under which foreign applicants were required to invest at least $5 million in Australia, largely in fixed income and property funds, with the balance in emerging market equities and venture capital for a period of four years.

The firm noted that once investors completed the SIV process they would become subject to Australian taxation so they often opted a more sophisticated Australia-based portfolio.

At the same time, RAM said it had strong growth in wealth Australian clients who wished to diversify investments managed from here.

“We embrace the notion that wealthy families have a natural bias towards real assets such as real estate and incorporate that into our investment process and portfolios,” Kelly said.

“This allows our clients to benefit from a truly diversified and risk-controlled portfolio, generated using the entire spectrum of asset management products, but still have exposure to preferred real assets like commercial real estate.”

The firm said it had launched new fixed income, private equity and real estate investment strategies  for clients, increased assets under management and bought nine metropolitan and regional Australian shopping centres for its Australian Retail Property Fund.
