Our three core businesses

Perpetual Investments

Award-winning asset management

Perpetual Investments is one of Australia’s most highly regarded and awarded investment managers, providing a broad range of investment strategies and products to individuals, advisers and institutions. We manage money across a range of asset classes, including Australian and global equities, multi-sector strategies as well as credit and fixed income.

Our disciplined investment process has been tested and proven for more than 50 years. We actively manage investments based on fundamental research and analysis of quality, value and risk. Our aim is to choose the best quality investments at prices that represent good value, based on their potential risk and return.

To further strengthen our investment process, we constantly invest in the quality and depth of our investment team. Today we have one of the most experienced and highly regarded investment teams in Australia.


Perpetual Private

Personal wealth advisory and trustee services

Perpetual Private provides tailored, holistic financial advice and solutions for successful individuals, families and community-based organisations. Fordham, which is part of Perpetual Private, acts exclusively for private business owners and their families to manage their businesses and build and protect their wealth.

Perpetual Private’s hallmark is the breadth of services available to clients as we seek to meet their often-complex needs at various life stages, and often across generations. Our advisers provide strategic advice on superannuation and retirement planning, general investment, asset protection, insurance, tax management, estate planning, aged care, social security, succession planning and philanthropy.

As one of Australia’s largest managers of philanthropic funds, we manage approximately 1,000 charitable trusts and endowment funds, which support medical, social, environmental, religious, cultural and educational causes.

The unique combination of professional trustee management experience, fiduciary heritage and investment management capability has seen Perpetual Private become a key partner in the prudent and effective management of Native Title trusts, a new and growing part of our business.

One of Perpetual Private’s strengths is our expertise in protecting and growing wealth over the very long term – reflected in the fact that many of our advisers have client relationships spanning generations of the same family. 

Perpetual Corporate Trust

Corporate Fiduciary Services

Perpetual Corporate Trust is the leading provider of corporate trustee services to the funds management sector and debt capital markets in Australia. In debt capital markets our clients include banks, large financial institutions, non-bank lenders and loan originators.

We have been part of the Australian securitisation industry since its inception in the 1980s and play a leading role in helping the industry manage regulatory and technological change. Perpetual Corporate Trust’s data services are the crucial link between issuers, the Reserve Bank of Australia and the investment community. Through our ABSPerpetual Business Intelligence platform we harvest insights from 15 years of data across millions of mortgage records to underpin the risk, finance and strategy decisions of Australia’s financial institutions.

The acquisition of The Trust Company in late 2013 has cemented Perpetual Corporate Trust’s position as the leading provider of fiduciary solutions to the funds management sector, and we service a broad range of clients across multiple asset classes including property, infrastructure, equities, fixed income and alternatives.

Having expanded our service offering and geographical footprint, Perpetual is now the only trustee with licences to provide corporate trustee services in Australia and Singapore.

Our extensive knowledge of financial markets, our trustee heritage and the expertise and experience of our team allow us to be the trusted partner of some of the world’s largest financial institutions.
