Investors

Quest manages funds on behalf of retail, high net worth and large wholesale clients.

Retail Investors

Retail investors with a financial adviser can invest in the Quest Australian Equities Concentrated Portfolio through the Mason Stevens, MacquarieHUB24 and Powerwrap Platforms.

In contrast to pooled investment vehicles, investors retain individual ownership of their share portfolio under a Separately Managed Account (SMA) structure which is held on their behalf by the Custodian nominated by the individual platform. This structure prevents the transfer of capital gains between clients. It may also allow clients to benefit from the tax advantages from discounted capital gains tax benefits.

Clients will receive the standard suite of reports offered by the individual platform which should include commentary provided by Quest Asset Partners. Investment minimums and fees vary by platform. See FAQs for further information.

High Net Worth Investors*
