Helping Grow and Protect Your Investments

MOAT Capital Philosophy

Here at MOAT Capital we don’t leave our clients investments to the whims of the market! We design and implement innovative strategies that, not only help our client’s grow their investments but also deal with market uncertainties.

Where appropriate we can do this in a number of ways, firstly by investing with a pragmatic sentiment based approach that views investing more from a cyclical and/or goals based point of view. We believe there are better times to be more aggressive and better times to be more defensive when investing in growth assets such as shares. Secondly and again where appropriate, we can implement the use of a direct protected strategy that utilises derivatives such as index options and/or short funds which are designed to offset portfolio losses by profiting from share market downturns.

Our investors have control and full transparency with each strategy we implement and because we avoid complex ownership structures and only deal with highly liquid and tradeable securities, investor’s accounts are highly liquid.
