In this ever changing financial climate, traditional investments continue to be the bedrock of most private client portfolios. However there are an increasing number of investors who have identified the need to mitigate the risk associated with the traditional markets by diversifying into alternative investment opportunities.
Armada Assets was formed by a team of experts with a combined professional experience of 30 years. Based in Sydney Australia, our team members have a diverse background of promoting a variety of different assets classes all over the world.
In the ever changing and increasingly complex global economic system, investors are faced with tough choices. Markets are volatile and interest rates are set to remain at record lows for some time, increasing the systemic risk profile of portfolios across the board.
We believe in adhering to time tested traditional values in the asset selection process whilst employing an innovative approach to the market. This allows us to offer our clients truly exceptional products with the potential to deliver superior investment returns.
Demand for our type of products have increased dramatically over the last few years as more and more investors are looking to diversify away from the more traditional equity and money markets. These traditional markets have now firmly established itself as volatile and low in yield.
Our focus is for investors to attain outright ownership of their assets. In other words, there are no collective schemes in place, therefore safeguarding the client from potential default risk from the management firm. In turn investors can benefit from lower management fees which also contribute to a higher Return on Investment. Additionally further diversification is achieved, resulting in a lower portfolio risk profile and higher potential overall yields.
Product Selection Process
Now more than ever it is crucial for investors to adhere to a strict due diligence process in identifying potential investment opportunities.Here at Armada Assets we can appreciate that moving away from the traditional investments can be quite daunting to those who are relatively new to the market. We also recognise that while Investors can see the benefits of non-traditional projects and opportunistic investing, they are sometimes lacking in the ability to source such ventures.
Sourcing the most profitable and upstanding investment opportunities in a timely fashion requires a broad combination of skills. Our partners and the team at Armada Assets are fully equipped to handle this task. Armada Assets draws on its global partners, creating far reaching capabilities to source investment opportunities. With over 30 years’ combined experience spanning across a diverse range of markets and a passion for exploiting the untapped potential available in the less traditional markets, Armada Assets is the perfect platform to aid in the diversification of your portfolio.
Our analysts always strive to adhere to certain principles in evaluating potential products.
It’s of vital importance that any product is delivered to our clients where ownership is confirmed in a robust manner and access to the asset is freely available. We avoid jurisdictions with dubious legal systems and only focus on projects where ownership rights are fully secured.
We all know that the successful outcome of a business is often dependant on the strength of the management team. Our analysts therefore only ever shortlist products that come with a management team with relevant experience in the sector with a proven track record of delivery.
In a dynamic global economic environment, high growth sectors change often as the global geopolitical and economic picture evolves. At Armada Assets we maintain a medium- to long term view on a sector’s expected performance and only recommend assets to our clients in areas where growth is expected to remain strong.
Dealing with lesser known asset classes can often be a new experience for many investors. Our team at Armada Assets therefore will only recommend products to our clients for which there are a high degree of transparency on pricing, performance and ultimately exit execution
