Vertium fund added to FirstWrap and Hub24
FirstWrap and Hub24 have both added Vertium Asset Management’s equity income fund to their superannuation and investor-directed portfolio service menus.
“Pre-retirees and retirees have different investment needs and goals,” said Vertium Asset Management chief investment officer and founder Jason Teh.
“We think there is an unmet need, particularly in servicing retirees in the decumulation phase, and believe our triple-objective approach gives advisers the opportunity to offer their clients the potential to achieve superior investment outcomes in the lead-up to and during retirement.”
Chief executive of Vertium’s parent company Copia Investment Partners, Sam Baillieu, added that the business was pleased to have the fund included on both platforms within its first year of operation.
