Investment process

1. Screen

Filters the universe and eliminates high risk stocks and catalyst driven sub-sectors.

2. Stock selection

Focuses on large cap companies that demonstrate a competitive advantage with stable intrinsic value but are out of favour.

3. Innovative implementation

Cash-backed put options and stock-backed call options are used to buy and sell holdings.

Why invest with Wingate

International equity exposure

Exposure to global investment opportunities and trading strategies not readily accessible to individuals.

Reduced downside risk

Stock selection and entry/exit strategy aims to participate in most market upside but reduce downside risk.


A contrarian approach to international investing.

Income distributions

The Fund aims to provide quarterly income distribution returns to investors of 5 - 7 % p.a

Tax-aware treatment of income

Option premium received is assessed on capital account as opposed to revenue. This can provide potential tax advantages for some investors.

Lower volatility

Smoother return profile reduces sequencing risk (timing of returns)
