Who We Are

WaveStone Capital is an Australian equities investment manager based in Sydney. WaveStone’s founding principals, Graeme Burke and Catherine Allfrey, have worked together since 1998. The pair, together with recently retired principal and ongoing shareholder, Ian Harding, formed WaveStone Capital in 2006. Raaz Bhuyan joined WaveStone Capital as a principal in 2014, bringing with him over 20 years of project finance, broking and investment management experience.

Together, we have a passion for investing and hence a high conviction approach to buying stocks, but we also want to be able to vary the exposure to the market by holding cash and shorting stocks and the index.

Our corporate logo is a Plasmid – a circular, independent strand of DNA capable of self-replication. It represents our strong, autonomous approach to investing and our potential to achieve competitive, repeatable performance.

We are proud to have been named finalists in the Lonsec and Money Management 2016 Fund Manager of the Year Awards in the Australian Equities Broadcap category.
