About

Stonewood is a dynamic international Wealth Manager providing a full range of Wealth Management solutions for investors. We provide uncomplicated, transparent and low cost global investment portfolios tailored to your risk and return profile.

Wealth Principles

We believe that our client’s capital should work for them, not the other way around. 

Capital preservation, growing wealth in real terms, and increasing purchasing power are fundamental objectives. The Stonewood platform and Investment Philosophy helps our clients achieve these goals in an uncomplicated, transparent, and low cost environment.

Our client’s capital should enable them to achieve their personal goals, to control their time, providing freedom, independence and the ability to pursue their dreams. 

Investment Philosophy

Our Investment philosophy is central to our ability to create value for our clients and is core to all our investment decisions.

Successful investing requires three core attributes:

1. Contrarian value investing

2. A consistent and repeatable process

3. Access to a global opportunity set

Contrarian

The best investment opportunities are found where there is a shortage of capital, not where everyone is seeking to invest. We continually seek out those stocks, sectors, geographies and asset classes that others are avoiding which we believe provide the most attractive investment opportunities with the best returns.

Consistent

Stonewood believes that the best investment results are achieved by following a consistent repeatable investment process. This increases the probability of success and the likelihood of achieving a superior investment outcome. We prioritise our processes and remain within our sphere of competence.

Global

The ability to invest globally enables Stonewood to be opportunistic and take advantage of dislocations in global markets.
