For institutional investors

Kapstream has worked on behalf of a predominantly institutional client base since establishment in 2006. Today, more than 50 of Australia’s largest institutional investors – comprising superannuation funds, government entities, insurance companies, multi-managers, family offices, endowments and charities – entrust us with the management of their assets.

The flagship Kapstream Absolute Return Income strategy is an alternative to conventional fixed income approaches, with combined objectives of preserving capital and maintaining liquidity while seeking an absolute return of 2-3% above cash. Low volatility and stable, consistent income returns characterise the approach. It invests on a benchmark-agnostic basis in a diverse portfolio of predominantly short dated domestic and international investment grade bonds. The Kapstream Absolute Return Income Plus strategy is a higher performance variant of Kapstream’s flagship, targeting an absolute return of 3-4% above cash. Suited to investors for whom constant liquidity is a lesser priority, and who can tolerate modestly higher volatility, the strategy has high commonality with Kapstream’s flagship portfolio, deriving the superior return predominantly by having a larger allocation to higher yielding sectors.

Segregated Portfolios

For larger institutional investors Kapstream manages bespoke segregated portfolios within separately managed accounts. These are typically tailored to reflect marginally different risk or return requirements; to include – or avoid – exposure to specific fixed income sectors, or to meet particular exclusion requirements such as those where ESG issue considerations need to be taken into account. For further information and to discuss your own requirements, please contact us.
