Australia-based Ironbark Asset Management has partnered with boutique investment manager Denning Pryce to introduce two new retail equity products in 2017.

Under the partnership, the two entities will launch Australian equity and global equity solution, along with various institutional and wholesale solutions.

Ironbark head of distribution Alex Donald said, “Over the course of 2017 and in response to investors’ needs, we will launch an Australian equity and a global equity product for Australian retail clients.

“Aside from the retail market, we’re also working with institutional and wealth management clients to create bespoke solutions for their unique market segments. Our strategic partnership has been received well by the market and we’ve had lots of interest already.”

Denning Pryce managing director and CIO Michael Pryce said: “We aim to deliver lower risk for investors by having targeted participation in the upside with controlled exposure to market falls.

“A highly flexible and active approach is particularly important during times of market uncertainty.”
