Pinnacle’s philosophy is to provide specialist investment managers with superior distribution, fund infrastructure and support services to enable them to focus on delivering investment excellence to their clients. Our affiliated managers operate autonomously, in line with our philosophy that ‘supported independence’ is an essential ingredient in sustaining investment excellence and business resilience over the long term.
Pinnacle holds equity interests in a number of specialist investment managers and provides them with a governance framework, working capital, seed funding and a comprehensive range of institutional quality and cost-effective distribution and other non-investment support services.
The Pinnacle business model, comprising several investment managers under the one ‘umbrella, is stronger than that of many single investment managers. Stand-alone managers can struggle in a highly regulated and demanding environment to provide the high-quality infrastructure needed for modern investment management and with achieving the resourcing depth, scale economies and purchasing power of their institutional and multi-affiliate / ‘house of boutique’ peers. The Pinnacle model is well accepted and endorsed by national and global research groups.
