To reach our investment goals, we identify cars that show the best relative value and growth prospects. We do that by using proprietary statistical models derived from millions of data points.

An Intro To The Fund

Fund Overview

Launched in May 2021, the Mach 1 Fund is the Australia's first vehicle investment fund. Open to wholesale investors and SMSF-compliant, the Fund takes a data-driven approach to maximising financial returns. All the while fostering an active investor community.

Investment Thesis

The Mach 1 Fund is uniquely positioned - as internal combustion engine cars make way for electrification and hybridisation - to secure the 'last of the line pre-classics', with V8/V10/V12 naturally aspirated engines and manual gearboxes, anticipating their destined rarity and sharp value rise.

Acquisition Strategy

The Fund acquires only the cars that positively exhibit multiple indicators of future classic status. With each vehicle undergoing a meticulous due diligence and inspection process. Of all the vehicles inspected, less than 6% will meet the Fund's acquisition criteria.
