THE ACO INSTRUMENT FUND
MANAGED INVESTMENT FUND
The ACO Instrument Fund is a managed investment fund established for wholesale clients only.
The investment objective of the Instrument Fund is to achieve long term capital gains from investing in specified high quality stringed instruments to be loaned to the ACO for use by its players.
ASSETS OF THE FUND
- The Fund’s first acquisition was Australia’s only Stradivarius violin, secured in 2011.
- The Fund's second acquisition is a 1714 violin made by Joseph Guarneri filius Andreae, secured in 2013.
- The Fund’s latest acquisition is a 1616 cello made by Hieronymus and Antonio Amati, secured in 2017. To download the media release, click here.
The Fund was launched in 2011 with a unit price of $1.00 and as at 31 March 2015, the Fund was revalued to $1.40. The unit price was maintained at $1.40 during a formal valuation on 10 April 2017.
As well as its financial potential, investment in a fine instrument represents a strong philanthropic commitment, in this case supporting the ongoing success of Australia’s most revered performing ensemble. In effect, the investor becomes a patron of the virtuosos to whom the instruments are loaned.
An investor also contributes to Australia’s cultural landscape, providing thousands with the opportunity to attend performances that could not be achieved with lesser instruments, and helping support the future of music in Australia.
FOR WHOLESALE INVESTORS ONLY
The Fund is only available to wholesale clients (as defined under the Corporations Act). The minimum investment required is $50,000. For further general information, see the ACO Instrument Fund brochure.
