Watermark is an independent fund manager established in 2003 and is one of Australia’s longest serving absolute-return managers. Watermark is one of a handful of Australian investors with a proven track record in managing long/short portfolios.
Watermark’s philosophy is focussed on delivering superior returns for clients, but at the same time preserving their capital. We monitor portfolio risk metrics as tightly as we do your portfolio returns.
We choose to manage a long/short absolute-return strategy because it is more active in profiting from the mispricing of shares (both up and down), and is less reliant on a rising share market to support the return. Our investment process allows greater flexibility in managing share market risks as short positions are a natural hedge when markets fall in value.
