Kardinia Capital (Kardinia), Bennelong's absolute return manager, has been nominated for ‘Australian equities – alternative strategies' Manager of the Year in the highly regarded Professional Planner/Zenith Fund Awards.
The determination of the finalists is based on Zenith Investment Partners’ robust manager assessment methodology, and encompasses several key aspects of the fund managers’ businesses.
Kardinia was established by Mark Burgess and Kristiaan Rehder, in partnership with Bennelong Funds Management, in August 2011. Mark and Kristiaan jointly manage the Bennelong Kardinia Absolute Return Fund, a long/short Australian equity product with the long-term objective of achieving double digit annual rates of return without compromising on capital protection.
All nominated fund managers are also in the running for the overall Professional Planner/Zenith ‘Fund Manager of the Year' Award.
Winners will be announced at a luncheon in Sydney on 11 October.
