HMC Capital High Conviction Alternatives Fund (Fund), is an Australian-domiciled unlisted fund providing exposure to a high-conviction investment strategy seeking to generate superior risk-adjusted returns.

The Fund will target public and private companies with real asset backing where there is potential to unlock ‘trapped’ value through improved capital allocation and portfolio management.

The Fund is managed by the same team which led the real estate acquisition of Masters from Woolworths Limited in 2017 and who founded HMC Capital, complemented by additional dedicated and high calibre investment professionals.

The Fund implements its investment strategy by investing in units in HMC Capital Partners Fund 1 - Trust C (“Underlying Fund”), an unregistered unit trust established in Australia by HMC Investment Management Pty Ltd, a HMC Capital Entity

This Fund will target our highest conviction ideas and leverage our proven investment track record and skills to generate attractive risk adjusted returns which are non-correlated to equity markets over the long-term
