Wyllie Group’s equities portfolio consists of both directly held and externally managed listed stocks, which provide the Group with a diversified return and risk profile. A small number of the country’s best performing fund managers have been selected to manage the Group’s equities portfolio.
In addition, strategic holdings in small to mid-cap listed companies, allow the Group’s direct investments to be more actively managed to create greater shareholder returns.
In July 2007, Wyllie Group assembled an experienced investment team and launched a niche funds management company called Viburnum Funds. As a founding shareholder of the fund management company and the seed investor for the early funds, Wyllie Group maintains a substantial investment with the now fully independent funds management operation.
Viburnum Fund manages substantial investments for both domestic and international investors across a number of purpose-specific funds focused on actively managed and high conviction outcomes.
