Becoming An Investor

The ACO Instrument Fund offers wholesale investors the opportunity to participate in the ownership of a bank of historic stringed instruments which are lent by the Fund to the ACO. Since its launch in 2011, the ACO Instrument Fund’s investors have steadily grown to include individuals via their self-managed super funds (SMSFs), private ancillary funds (PAFs), as well as family trusts and foundations.

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.



The ACO Instrument Fund is open to wholesale investors only, with a minimum investment requirement of $50,000.

Please refer to your accountant or financial adviser for the definition of a ‘wholesale client’ or the Corporations Act. Applicants will need to provide an accountant’s certificate confirming their status as a wholesale client.
