Pengana Capital offers investors access to some of the world’s best fund managers, all under one roof.
Founded in 2003 and headquartered in Sydney, with offices in Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth, Pengana currently manages over AUD$3.5 billion across a range of international and Australian strategies.
We hunt for the world’s leading funds management teams in order to bring our investors unique, differentiated, and smart investment products.
Our unique business model also delivers centralised support from our corporate team, so our fund managers can focus on what they do best – managing portfolios.
Pengana’s premium investment products employ active strategies with non-benchmark mandates, giving our investment teams the freedom to invest in their best ideas.
With independent investment teams in Chicago, UK , Israel, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney, our range of independently managed investment strategies provides a well-blended and uncorrelated level of diversification.
Each strategy is run by a separate investment team with unique skills relevant to their investment class. Our focus and track record is to provide investors with long-term returns, adjusted for risk minimisation.
For investors seeking an investment that suits their ethical viewpoint as well as their financial goals, Pengana also offers a range of products that allow investors to align their portfolios with their principles without compromising their investment returns.
Pengana specialises in distinct active investment strategies that aim to deliver superior long-term risk adjusted returns to investors, with a focus on capital preservation.
We were founded on the premise that alignment between a fund manager and its investors is crucial. Our business and our funds are structured and managed within this framework.
OUR BRAND STORY
THE PENGANA WAS AN ANCIENT BIRD OF PREY, WITH ANKLE JOINTS THAT ENABLED IT TO BEND ITS FEET IN ALL DIRECTIONS.
This made it an expert hunter, with a significant competitive advantage. It not only had the ability to identify its prey from a long distance, but also to use its flexible joints to reach into hard to access places, giving it the ability to extract prey unavailable to its competitors.
Like the Pengana, our investment teams use their significant experience and extensive company visitation program to extract information that enables them to uncover investment opportunities. In house proprietary research is their competitive advantage. It helps to highlight areas to be cautious of or avoid, as well as identify sectors and stocks that are well positioned for the future.
PENGANA’S ETHICAL & SUSTAINABLE POLICIES
For investors seeking an investment that suits their ethical viewpoint as well as their financial needs, Pengana offers a broad range of solutions.
Ethical investing is going mainstream, with an increasing number of Australians seeking investment portfolios that balance environmental, social and governance factors with traditional business and financial metrics in order to meet their financial objectives.
At Pengana we offer a range of products that allow investors to align their portfolios with their principles without compromising their investment returns.
Our negatively screened Funds exclude companies that cause harm to people, animals, or the environment from their investment universe. These include sectors such as weapons manufacturing, tobacco, gambling, uranium mining, and fossil fuel exploration and production.
We offer a Sustainable Impact Fund, managed by WHEB Asset Management out of the UK. WHEB is a highly experienced and respected sustainable investment manager, and this Fund only invests in companies that create a positive social or environmental impact or produce goods and services to address the challenges of sustainability.
Our range of funds also includes Australia’s only high conviction AREIT fund with an ESG focus. The Pengana High Conviction Property Securities Fund believes that responsible investing is important to generate long-term sustainable returns. Incorporating ESG factors alongside financial measures provides a complete view of the risk/return characteristics of our property investments.
Pengana is committed to best practices in ethical and sustainable impact investing. We are a member of the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA), a signatory to the UN’s Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), source ESG company research from a specialist provider, and the various ESG frameworks utilised by our strategies are subject to review by a number of independent organisations.
We are also committed to sound corporate governance, lodging proxy votes on behalf of investors and engaging with companies on issues such as board composition, remuneration, corporate accountability and shareholder rights.
