Wednesday, October 30 2013

IOOF’s multi-manager fund, IOOF MultiMix has awarded a $200m mandate to Australian equities fund manager, Dalton Nicol Reid. This is Dalton Nicol Reid’s largest Australian equities institutional mandate.

Founded in 2001, Dalton Nicol Reid’s investment philosophy is to identify, buy and hold quality companies for the medium- to long-term.

Commenting on the decision to award Dalton Nicol Reid the mandate, IOOF Portfolio Manager Australian Equities, Daniel Farmer said “Dalton Nicol Reid’s consistently strong performance over a long period, its efficient investment process focusing on quality stocks, and its relatively low, but growing funds under management were all key factors in IOOF MultiMix’s decision to award this mandate.”

He continued “The fact that the principals of Dalton Nicol Reid are personally invested in their business and their funds is another attractive feature. This level of conviction means their interests are aligned with those of our investors.”

The flagship Dalton Nicol Reid Australian Equities High Conviction Portfolio has outperformed its benchmark by 4.9%pa over 10 years. It is one of only two long-only Australian equities managers to have achieved a positive excess return in every one of the last 10 calendar years.

Commenting on the mandate win, Dalton Nicol Reid CEO, Harley Dalton, noted “Our long term business strategy has been to expand our presence in the institutional space of the investment management industry. We have been working with IOOF for some time now and are pleased to offer their investors the benefits of our investment style and performance.”

IOOF’s Farmer concluded, “Dalton Nicol Reid is a great addition to our existing IOOF MultiMix manager line-up, providing an even greater level of diversification to our investors.”
