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.


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

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