Investments in private markets fall outside traditional asset classes such as Fixed Income and Equities. They include Private Equity and Venture Capital, Agricultural Assets, Real Estate and Hedge Funds. Historically, alternatives have generated superior risk-adjusted returns and they also introduce a level of diversification into a portfolio (i.e. they can provide a buffer to returns when equity markets under-perform). Private markets tend to have superior risk-adjusted returns as there are fewer players, there is greater information asymmetry and investors tend to exert a greater degree of control. In private markets, the track record of the manager matters. Blue Sky has built a strong investment track record across private equity, venture capital, hedge funds, private real estate, and real assets.
Blue Sky’s Private Equity division specialises in providing both expansion and venture capital to Australian companies to help support their growth. Blue Sky’s Private Equity fund currently has investments in companies across a broad range of industries, including retail, consumer goods, equipment hire, manufacturing, media and mining services. The Blue Sky Alternatives Access Fund Limited (‘The Alternatives Fund’) is a listed investment company mandated to invest in a diversified portfolio of alternative assets managed by a wholly owned subsidiary of Blue Sky Alternative Investments Limited (‘Blue Sky’). The Investment Manager has developed a suite of products with a range of return profiles that are designed to help investors meet their particular investment goals with a particular focus on protecting portfolios in times of crisis.
