The Bennelong Australian Equities Fund has been added to netwealth's exclusive Investor Rewards Program, which provides a choice of up to 50 managed funds - all of which have been highly rated by specialist, third party research agencies.
Matt Heine, netwealth's Executive Director, said "We are very pleased to be able to work with and add this high-quality, well researched fund that demonstrates a strong underlying demand from advisers.
"The Investor Rewards Program is just another way we add value for our clients, this is further enhanced through our philosophy that inclusion on the Rewards menu is not about big brands but rather quality funds managers - both big and small."
Broader investment menu
In addition, the Bennelong Concentrated Australian Equities Fund has been added to the broader netwealth investment menu, which provides Investment Wrap and Super Wrap account holders with access to over 250 managed funds from more than 75 local and international managers.
Jarrod Brown, Bennelong Funds Management's Chief Executive Officer, said "Our Australian equities team is committed to providing the highest standards, achieved through extensive experience, a rigorous fundamental bottom-up analysis and insightful proprietary quantitative research. It is rewarding to receive recognition for their efforts".
Launched in October 2008, the Bennelong Australian equities suite of funds is managed by Bennelong Australian Equity Partners (BAEP), a joint venture between Bennelong Funds Management and experienced Australian equities professionals Paul Cuddy and Mark East.
