Early Years

Blue Sky was founded in 2006 and made our first private equity investment in that year. Our first investment was just $150,000, raised entirely from family and friends. Managing money on behalf of those closest to us ingrained a mindset that continues today: we work fiercely to protect and grow our investors’ capital. After recognising the long term, structural growth in alternative assets we expanded into Private Real Estate and Real Assets in 2007 to become Australia’s first diversified alternative asset manager.

Building the Platform

Blue Sky listed on the ASX in January 2012 with a market capitalisation of $33 million and with fee-earning assets under management (FEAUM) of approximately $180 million. Since then, we have retained our discipline, focusing on creating compelling investor returns within private markets.

In 2014, we listed the Blue Sky Alternatives Access Fund (ASX: BAF), a globally unique listed investment company that provides investors with access to a diverse portfolio of actively managed alternative assets in an ASX listed structure.

Blue Sky now has FEAUM of over $3.4 billion (as at 30 June 2018), over 100 employees and five offices across Australia and the United States.
