History

ARCO Investment Management (previously Optimal Australia) is a specialist Australian equities manager, based in Melbourne, focused solely on delivering absolute return investment strategies to its clients.

Our aim is to provide investors with consistent, positive risk-adjusted returns, across all market conditions.

The company was established in 2008 by George Colman and Peter Whiting who have long believed in the power of compounding positive returns, whilst also preserving invested capital, over time. 

The flagship Absolute Trust has achieved an average return (net of all fees) of 8.2% p.a. since inception in September 2008, with a volatility notably below that of the broader equity market and delivering 80% positive monthly returns over the same time period.
