Denning Pryce is independent and privately-owned, and provides global volatility management

Funds managed on behalf of Australian investors and advisers now exceed $350m.

Our team of seven has a depth of experience and diverse backgrounds in engineering, maths, computer science and the arts.

We help customers by thinking about investment a little differently:

  • Apply sound volatility management practice to improve risk-adjusted returns
  • Use shares and options to build a portfolio with specific risk characteristics
  • Generate consistent quarterly income
  • Provide downside protection, and target low volatility of returns

Key institutional representation is with Ironbark Asset Management, and we manage funds for Zurich Australia.

We specialise in market volatility, the use of listed options and active risk management.

Our Ironbark Denning Pryce Tailored Income funds have specific risk and return objectives, aiming to make money, pay quarterly income, and control volatility of returns.
