Zenith Investment Partners have awarded a ‘recommended’ rating for the Watermark Market Neutral Trust.

Zenith are a leading research house with comprehensive coverage of the Australian hedge fund sector. Having recently completed their Market Neutral Sector Review, Zenith commended Watermark for consistency in the application of its investment process and for the continuing enhancement of its operational infrastructure.

As an established player in the Australian hedge fund industry, Watermark is committed to raising awareness amongst the investment community, of the important role that alternative investments play in portfolio construction. As is clearly demonstrated in the track record of Watermark’s absolute return funds and through Zenith’s analysis of other highly rated funds in the sector, alternative investments offer true diversification and an appealing risk/return profile.

With thorough reporting from independent research groups such as Zenith, investors will be better equipped to assess their options in the hedge fund space, which are increasingly being considered by portfolio constructors and self-directed investors as an attractive investment vehicle. This also builds upon Zenith’s well-established reputation as a leader in the assessment of alternative asset classes, such as long/short equities.
