Hamilton12 focuses on creating systematic, rules-based investment strategies designed to help investors achieve positive risk-adjusted returns at a lower cost. The Hamilton12 Australian Shares Income Fund, launching in March 2023, aims to generate long-term after-tax returns for Australian resident investors in excess of the Benchmark after fees, including an annual gross dividend yield (including franking) that exceeds the gross dividend yield of the Benchmark.

The Fund uses the same systematic, rules-based approach as the Hamilton12 Australian Diversified Yield Index that allocates the portfolio towards Securities offering high franked dividend yield and aims to mitigate risk by ensuring the Fund is diversified across industry sectors.

Apex Group has been appointed to provide Fund Administration, Transfer Agency and Custody services, with K2 Asset Management Ltd acting as trustee to the fund.

Fund administration is at the core of Apex Group’s single-source solution, delivering timely, accurate and independent services, underpinned by market leading technology platforms. According to a recent Total Economic Impact (TEI) report by Forrester Consulting, clients of Apex Group’s single-source solution achieve, on average, cost benefits of $5.39m, with a net present value of $2.75m over a three-year period.

This appointment follows Apex Group’s continued growth in Australia and New Zealand, including the strategic acquisitions of Mainstream Group and MMC in 2022, and new client wins including Yarra Capital Management, Capital Prudential, Foord Asset Management, Octopus Investments Australia, Perennial Partners and New Forests.

Nick Bradford, Head of Business Development, Australia and New Zealand at Apex Group comments: “Following the integration of Apex Group’s acquisitions in Australia, we have continued to see strong client demand in the first quarter of 2023, for our expanded suite of services, driving our organic growth in the region. We are proud to be supporting the launch of Hamilton12’s new Australian Shares Income Fund through our consultative approach and provision of flexible solutions. Hamilton12’s appointment of Apex Group for fund administration, transfer agency and custody services is yet further recognition of the compelling benefits and efficiencies of our singlesource model.”

Richard McDougall, Managing Director and Co-Founderof Hamilton12 further comments:“We are pleased to be working with Apex Group to offer to wholesale and sophisticated Australian resident investors our after-tax focused systematic investment strategy through the Hamilton12 Australian Shares Income Fund. Apex Group’s single-source solution means that we can access all the fund administration and custody services via one contract, delivered by an experienced local team. We have been impressed with their advice and adaptability in bringing our fund to market, and are confident in their ability to offer scalable solutions as we grow.”
