Your Own Professionally Managed Online Share Portfolio

Aldersley Capital Direct takes the guesswork and hassles out of investing, giving you more time to concentrate on your other interests.

About Us

Aldersley Capital is an investment management company incorporated in 1985. In 2013 it commenced managing investments for a select group of self-directed wholesale and sophisticated clients on a large platform. It consistently outperformed benchmarks for Australian equities over those ten years. John Aldersley is the key executive.

Now in 2024, with the launch of Aldersley Capital Direct, this expertise is to be shared with the wider Australian public.

Going forward from 1st March 2024, all performance data will be calculated by OpenInvest Limited and will be set out in the Aldersley Capital Client Portal and reproduced here. OpenInvest use a shadow portfolio and model returns are based on opening and closing net asset values for the specified period less the deduction of all fees, i.e. admin as well as investment fee, as they work on a single fee approach.
