Kardinia Capital is a boutique asset manager investing in Australian equities via an absolute return, variable beta, long/short strategy. We aim to generate consistent positive returns in all market conditions, with an overarching philosophy of capital protection.
The strategy gives investors variable exposure to the equity market, but with the flexibility of both minimising losses in equity market drawdowns and providing lower volatility than the market. As a result, the strategy is suited to investors with a lower tolerance for risk who want to participate in equity market returns but don’t want to risk losing too much money in doing so.
Alignment of objectives
Kardinia is majority-owned by the team, who also invest significantly in the strategy alongside family and friends – ensuring our goals are aligned with those of our investors.
A highly experienced team
The Kardinia team has a combined 80 years of experience in stock picking and managing money for clients. We’re a small, nimble business, which allows us to make decisions quickly to adapt to changing market conditions. We have genuinely collaborative and curious minds, and are driven by the reward of discovering new opportunities as well as continual learning and improvement.
