Wheelhouse Partners’ objective is to deliver consistent income-based real returns of 7-8% per annum, while only assuming around half the market risk. Through prudent use of options, we convert ‘hoped for’ equity growth, which is unpredictable, into more certain income streams. This increases the predictability, and therefore the dependability, of equity returns.

As such, the Wheelhouse Global Equity Income Fund is a risk-minimisation strategy, or a goals-based strategy, which stands in contrast to most strategies which are return-maximising but assume full market risk.
The value of the Global strategy has been demonstrated in a far more consistent and dependable return, which can be better aligned with investor expenses and obligations.

High yield for minimal risk, or as we like to say, income and protection… that’s all we do.
