A Comprehensive Approach to Stallion Investment
The aim of the Australian Stallion Fund is to create an entirely new and unique alternative investment fund that delivers a competitive risk-adjusted return. The fund aims to generate a 10% p.a. cash yield and IRR of 15% p.a. (net of fees) over 5 years.
The Australian Stallion Fund seeks to achieve this outcome for investors through:
Leveraging economies of scale: the expected size and frequency with which the ASF will invest grants the fund the ability to negotiate deals which would be inaccessible to most investors;
Financial and Thoroughbred expertise: The members of the ASF investment and advisory committee have over 50 years financial market and thoroughbred industry experience;
Partnerships: The ASF has established and developed close relationships with Australia’s leading studs;
Expert Networks: The will use its deep connections in the Australian thoroughbred industry to ensure factors that are (or may) impacting up the industry are identified and understood.
