About Us

Pinnacle


OUR PHILOSOPHY

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.

THE MODEL

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.

WHY PINNACLE?

Supported Independence

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.

Distribution Services

  • Product distribution
  • Marketing and business development  Investment Infrastructure
  • Business management
  • Licencing and insurance
  • Compliance and risk 
  • Company secretarial and legal counsel
  • Financial reporting and accounting
  • Human resources
  • Information technology
  • Operations and operational support
  • Middle office functions
  • Responsible entity services

WHY BOUTIQUES?

Outperformance Pinnacle believes there is a superior way to undertake investment management, which requires a ’boutique environment’ coupled with ‘institutional resourcing’. Pinnacle provides the ideal environment to enable its boutiques to produce superior investment performance.

  • A stable operating environment which frees investment professionals from unnecessary distractions;
  • Strong, clear, repeatable and consistent investment processes;
  • High quality, experienced, dedicated and passionate investment professionals; 
  • Independence, autonomy and freedom from bureaucracy;
  • Rewards and interests closely aligned to clients, with long-term equity participation in the business;
  • Flexibility to respond to changing market conditions.

 

Our Graduate Program

Pinnacle


What is It

Our Graduate program is a 12 month structured program covering a mix of on the job learning and formal professional development. Pinnacle’s approach to development is one that focuses on the practical, relevant and hands on aspects to reinforce learning from coursework, peers and mentors.

As a Graduate with Pinnacle you will be assigned to a Buddy for the 12 month period, your Buddy is someone a bit like a mentor from whom you can seek advice and guidance on navigating our working environment.

At Pinnacle we treat Graduates in a way that fosters their immersion, growth and adaption to our working environment. As a cohort you will do a group-based action learning project which will provide exposure to our 12 Affiliated Investment Managers and senior leadership.

You will have the benefit of visibility and opportunity and rotate across various parts of Pinnacle should you be interested.

 

Our Internship Program

Pinnacle


Pinnacle Investment Management offers internship positions to a select few students throughout the year. Previous summer intern students have been placed across our various Affiliated Investment Managers, our Pinnacle Finance team, Institutional Sales and Retail Research.

Our summer internships typically last 10-12 weeks and attract students in their penultimate year of university who would like to commence full time work the following year. We see our summer intern pool of candidates as a rich source of hiring for our full-time graduate programs. They are a great way for you to sample our working environment and hone your skills.
