Blue Sky was founded in 2006 and made our first private equity investment of $150,000 in that year. Since then, we have grown to have over $3 billion in assets under management invested across the four major alternative asset classes: private equity, private real estate, real assets and hedge funds.
We have built a world-class team of investment professionals that are highly aligned to delivering outcomes for our investors and shareholders. Our team is comprised of people with the utmost integrity who are passionate about our business and the investments that we manage. They have vast experience and global networks and work fiercely to protect and grow our investors’ capital.
Primarily, the impact we have made is through protecting and enhancing the wealth of our investors and shareholders. In addition, we have helped grow great businesses that employ thousands of people, have built homes for thousands of families, student and retirees and have enhanced the value of Australia’s agricultural sector through our investments.
We invest growth capital and late stage venture capital into rapidly growing businesses. We partner with world-class entrepreneurs, providing them with our capital, expertise and resources to help them deliver extraordinary outcomes for their business.
We are Australia’s leading independent manager of investments in water entitlements. We also make investments that enhance the value of Australia’s agricultural assets, combining our vast networks and decades of experience to generate investor returns.
We invest private capital into real estate markets, and through our investments actively look to create positive change for local communities. This includes teams dedicated to managing investments in student accommodation, retirement living and residential developments.
We aim to provide investors with true diversification within their portfolios. Our core Dynamic Macro strategy is designed to generate positive returns when most other assets perform poorly. Since inception in November 2007, this strategy has delivered investors an annualised return of 9.27% p.a. net of fees, with a correlation of -0.47 to the ASX 200 Total Return Index (as at 30 June 2017).
Investments in alternative assets are important as they have the potential to boost returns, add diversification and give exposure to a broader range of investment opportunities that simply aren’t available on the stock market. On average, institutional investors globally have 24% of their portfolios invested in alternatives. At Blue Sky, we have an 11-year track record of investment outperformance in alternatives and our team are highly aligned and work fiercely to protect and grow your wealth.
