HISTORY

Achernar is poised to grow and develop a balanced and sustainable investment portfolio through patience, diligence and a dedication to strategies that yield high returns over time.

The firm prides itself on irrefutable professionalism and its commitment to achieving positive returns for shareholders and investors. Its researchers, portfolio managers and board of directors individually and collectively strive to identify and maximise the potential of risk-adjusted investment opportunities in the private and public space.

BUSINESS PHILOSOPHY

Built over multiple decades, Achernar’s global investment team applies a rigorous set of strategies to deliver sustainable, long-term growth for investors.

A dedicated research team – with a footprint on four continents – examines and identifies investment opportunities which are then brought to the attention of the firm’s portfolio managers and board of directors. A decision is made on each potential and actual investment informed by long-term, macro trends in the market.

INVESTMENT PROCESS

Founded in the mid-nineties as a medium-sized private equity fund, Achernar has grown to become a fully-fledged accretive asset management specialist.

The firm expanded its operation at the turn of the century after achieving success in the private space, and entered the public markets, outgrowing its humble beginnings. Both privately and publicly, the firm applies the principles it was founded on to maximise shareholder value. Its legacy of creating wealth over time continues to today.
