Glenorchy Capital is a managed accounts service for qualified clients seeking professional portfolio management and exposure to investments in global equities exhibiting asymmetric risk/reward setups. Since inception in September 2019, the business has grown significantly and enjoyed positive results.

These images are taken directly from a client account who joined the service at inception (18th September 2019), and includes all statistics to 20th April 2022. These figures are actual figures inclusive of fees. Each client of Glenorchy Capital will experience unique performance, and past performance may not be indicative of future results.
We are invested in sectors and industries that reflect our world view – that we are in the first innings of a commodity bull market, underpinned by a stagflationary environment that will continue to be accentuated by the unravelling of almost a century of globalisation.
The Glenorchy Capital Asymmetric Gains Portfolio is intended to get you exposure to the most attractive asymmetric risk to reward setups we can find. The strategy is to identify individual investments where we can expect to secure returns of minimum 300%, while keeping downside risk relatively small.
This is achieved primarily through allocating a small amount of capital into individual positions all featuring this trait, and benefitting from the probability that while some may lose 100% of their value, others will achieve 300% returns or more – enabling us to profit while paying for any losing investments.
The trade off for achieving these sorts of returns is time horizons. We typically hold positions for years and not months. We view this as an edge, given the impatience found in markets characterized by quarterly benchmarks and reporting.
Our fees are split between a management fee, and a performance fee. Management fees are calculated as a proportion of the capital we manage for you, and are deducted quarterly.
Performance fees are calculated as a percentage of profit above a certain benchmark and are deducted annually. For the Asymmetric Gains Portfolio, this is the performance of the ETF “BIL” which tracks the performance of US 1-3 month treasury notes.
The above table lists example performance fees if $500,000 was invested, where a 2% benchmark is assumed (ETF “BIL”). Excludes 1% management fee.
Glenorchy Capital essentially trades on your behalf. Providing you meet the Qualified Client criteria (below), we can arrange to manage a portion of your wealth via a dedicated brokerage account that is owned and controlled by you (or an entity you control). After you have funded the account, you grant us permission to allocate and manage the capital on your behalf. This means we are able to invest for you, at our discretion, without taking custody of your funds, which remain in your dedicated brokerage account at all times. You pay a management fee to us, as well as a performance fee, based on the amount of capital in your account.
We are agnostic when it comes to what we invest in, as our primary objective is to get clients exposure to opportunities that exhibit the very best risk/reward setups we can find. Currently, that is mainly in value stocks (energy, mining, agriculture, shipping et cetera), but this will change over time.
Using Glenorchy Capital to manage a retirement fund (referred to as superannuation, pension, IRA etc.) is possible for many clients, but varies depending on location. Notable exceptions are UK self managed pensions, and restrictions on North American stock markets on Canadian accounts.
Participation in Glenorchy Capital is open and by invitation only. The firm wishes to ensure the right mix of investors are on board, and reserve the right to decline applications. We like to speak directly to all our prospective clients and this also provides an opportunity to have any questions answered. In order to become a client of Glenorchy Capital, you must meet these requirements:
Founders Chris MacIntosh and Brad McFadden speak with every client before any decision is made to invest with Glenorchy Capital. This ensures you can ask any questions you want answered, as well as making sure both our goals and outlook are aligned. Schedule a call
Accounts are managed with the objective of taking advantage of cyclical and macro trends, which can take years to play out, yet over time provide asymmetric risk adjusted returns.
In times of panic we aggressively buy more speculative securities when their prices fall to levels judged to be absurdly cheap. If this makes you feel uncomfortable then this is not for you.
Many standard metrics in the world of managed capital do not apply here. We are not concerned with what happens quarter to quarter, as is commonplace in the hedge fund industry.
Our fees are representative of personalised and actively managed capital, which may disappoint investors who are accustomed to low fee index funds, trackers and algo driven aggregated capital.
Upon confirming a time and date, the details of the call including how to join will be emailed to you

In this Brochure, we refer to GLENORCHY CAPITAL, Ltd. as GC. This Brochure provides information about the qualifications and business practices of GC. The information in this brochure has not been approved or verified by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or by any state securities authority.
Glenorchy Capital Ltd is registered in the British Virgin Islands and has an Approved Investment Manager license issued by the BVI Financial Services Commission. GC has registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission as an Investment Adviser. Such registration does not imply that GC or any of its employees have qualifications, skills, or training in the business of advising persons on their financial affairs.
If you have any questions about the contents of this brochure, please contact one of the principals at [email protected], or [email protected] You should also visit GC’s website www.glenorchycapital.net.
Additional information about GC is available on the SEC’s website at www.adviserinfo.sec.gov.
The purpose of this section is to inform you of any material changes since our last annual update dated March 30, 2021. This section is updated annually and when material changes occur. If you are reading this brochure for the first time, any material changes may not be relevant to you.
Although the following are not material changes as defined by regulation, we wanted to advise you regardless: We have clarified language in Item 5 regarding our fees and Item 8 regarding our investment strategies and key risks.
For client portfolios GC charges both an annual percentage fee based upon assets under management (AUM) and a performance fee. These fees vary based on which of our two investment strategies (i.e., Asymmetric Gains and Diversified Income) are utilized and the amount of assets GC manages for the client.
GC Investment Advisory Fee Schedules:
CAPITAL GAINS STRAGEY
DIVERSIFIED INCOME STRATEGY
Importantly: As these two fee schedules differ, it creates a conflict in that GC has an incentive to recommend one strategy over the other based on the potential revenue to GC. GC will review with clients the description of these two investment strategies as shown under Item #8 below and will recommend the strategy that best matches with the client’s stated investment objective.
Negotiability of Advisory Fees: Although GC has established standard fee schedule(s), we retain the discretion to charge alternative fees on a client-by-client basis. Client facts, circumstances, and needs are considered in determining the fee schedule. These include the complexity of the client, assets to be placed under management, anticipated future additional assets, scope and frequency of necessary services, portfolio style, and account composition among other facts. The specific annual fee is identified in the agreement between GC and each client.
GC will combine the market values of portfolios of family members residing at the same address in order to provide clients with the largest possible breakpoint as shown in the standard fee schedule.
GC is not a broker-dealer. GC purchases and sells securities through Interactive Brokers (as custodial broker) through any exchange that they allow trading on globally.
GC’s investment advisory fees do not include custodial or brokerage fees. Clients incur certain charges imposed by Interactive Brokers. This would include any brokerage transaction fees, custodial fees, odd-lot differentials, transfer taxes, wire transfer and electronic fund fees, and other fees and taxes on brokerage accounts, and securities transactions.
In addition, the shares of exchange traded funds (ETFs) and mutual funds (if any) held in a client’s account are subject to fund-related expenses. All fees paid to GC for investment advisory services are separate and distinct from the fees and expenses charged by the funds. Funds pay advisory fees to their managers, which are indirectly charged to all holders of the fund shares. Consequently, clients with exchange traded or mutual funds in their portfolios are effectively paying both GC and the fund managers for the management of their assets.
GC receives no direct compensation for the purchase or sale of any security. The only income GC receives is derived from the GC investment advisory client fees as shown in the schedules above.
GC seeks to minimize transaction expenses. GC will use block trading to consolidate an order for a security and such consolidation facilitates the purchase and allocation of the security to achieve best execution. Block trading minimizes logistical costs and in GC’s opinion reduces transaction expense. Not all client portfolios or trades will qualify for block trading.
GC bills the AUM fee quarterly in arrears. Performance fees are billed annually on the anniversary of the date in which the account was setup. Fees are deducted from client portfolios by Interactive Brokers. These fees are in turn credited to GC’s master account with Interactive Brokers.
The valuation of clients’ portfolios is determined and reported by Interactive Brokers. The AUM fee is calculated daily, at the annual percentage rate specified in the written Investment Advisory Agreement between the client and GC. The Investment Advisory Agreement will continue in effect until terminated by either party by written notice in accordance with the terms of the agreement. In the event the agreement is terminated, the AUM fee for the final billing period is assessed through the effective date of the termination and the outstanding portion of the AUM fee is billed to the Client.
GC charges a performance fee on all client accounts as described in the schedule above in Item #5. The highwater look back period for the Asymmetric Gains strategy is 5 years. GC waives the performance fee for employees and their direct family members.
GC will only manage accounts of qualified clients as defined in Rule 205-3 under the U.S. Investment Advisers Act. A qualified client, in the case of a natural person, either places at least $US1,100,000 under management with GC or has a net worth (together, with assets held jointly with a spouse) of more than $US2,200,000.
The minimum account size is $US150,000. Lesser amounts may be acceptable solely at GC’s discretion.
When investing in any security or a portfolio of securities, clients should be able to bear the risk of loss, including by those securities that GC invests in. We do not offer any guarantees of performance, nor that the clients’ financial objectives and needs will be met.
GC does not promise its clients insulation from losses due to market declines. All investing strategies we offer involve risk and may result in a loss of your original investment, which you should be prepared to bear. Many of these risks apply equally to stocks, bonds, commodities and any other investment or security.
Techniques and Resources for Analysis of GC portfolios:
GC employs fundamental and technical methods of analysis. GC will use fundamental analysis techniques to identify deep out of favour sectors or themes and ideal securities to purchase in order to gain exposure to these themes or sectors. Then technical analysis will be used to best time the entry of trades.
Typically sectors or themes that GC will look to invest in will have fallen by 70% or more over the previous 7 years.
One of GC’s primary goals on identifying a deep value theme or sector is to then choose stocks that are not under financial stress and will survive the downturn to prosper when the sector or theme comes back into favour.
The following describes our two investment strategies; Asymmetric Gains and Diversified Income
Asymmetric GainsThe Glenorchy Capital Asymmetric Gains strategy pursues capital gains and seeks to identify opportunities from many areas around the world. Our process searches for deep value situations, specifically where once profitable companies have outlasted bear markets with a reasonable possibility for reversals resulting in price appreciation. Clients need to understand that time horizons for any such reversals are often measured in years and not months. As a risk control measure, position sizes are kept small (often just 1% of total capital), across as many asymmetric situations as possible.
Diversified IncomeThe Glenorchy Capital Diversified Income strategy pursues current income with capital appreciation as a secondary objective. The strategy searches for investment opportunities around the world looking for stocks of non-leveraged, dividend paying companies with yields of 8% or greater and price-to-earnings ratios less than 15x. The strategy targets holding approximately 80 different positions in non-correlated sectors, and in non-correlated jurisdictions.
GC managed portfolios may be not diversified as the term “diversified” is commonly used in the financial community. GC’s selection process may lead to clients owning assets (equities) in a few industries or sectors. Heavy concentration in few industries or sectors and possibly in few equities within those sectors will create the possibility of extreme volatility in the common stock portion of client portfolios. The possibility of volatility suggests that GC’s strategy and philosophy are suitable for clients who are entrepreneurial, understand and tolerate volatility, and whose financial posture is strong.
RISK AND MANAGEMENT OF RISK IN GC MANAGED EQUITIE
GC will select at least 5 securities to represent each theme or sector and have a maximum initial weighting of 10% of the client’s portfolio to any one theme.
Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and it should not be assumed that future performance of any specific investment or strategy will be profitable. The following is a summary of risks associated with investments in GC strategies:
Equity Securities: GC invests in equity securities for client portfolios. The value of equities varies with the performance of the issuer and movements in the equity markets. A client may suffer losses if they invest in equity securities of issuers whose performance diverges from GC’s expectations or if equity markets move in a certain direction.
Fixed Income Securities: GC invests in bonds and other fixed income securities. These debt instruments may be issued by corporations or governments. These securities may pay fixed, variable or floating rates of interest. Fixed income securities are subject to the risk of the issuer’s inability to meet principal and interest payments on its obligations and are subject to price volatility due to such factors as interest rate sensitivity, market perception of the creditworthiness of the issuer and general market liquidity. A major economic recession could severely disrupt the market for such securities and may have an adverse impact on the value of securities. In addition, any such economic downturn could adversely affect the ability of issuers of such securities to repay principal and interest and increase the incidence of default for such securities.
Global Securities: Securities issued by foreign entities involve risks not associated with U.S. investments. These risks include currency fluctuation, political and economic change, social unrest, changes in government regulation, differences in accounting and the lesser degree of accurate public information available.
Commodity Risk: Exposure to commodities and commodity-related securities may subject a portfolio to greater volatility than investments in traditional securities. The value of commodity-linked investments may be affected by changes in overall market movements, commodity index volatility, changes in interest rates, or factors affecting a particular industry or commodity. In addition, to the extent that a portfolio gains exposure to an asset through synthetic replication by investing in commodity-linked investments rather than directly in the asset, it may not have a claim on the applicable underlying asset and will be subject to enhanced counterparty risk.
GC nor its supervised persons have had any legal or disciplinary events material to a client’s or prospective client’s evaluation, nor any self-regulatory organization or administrative proceeding of any kind.
GC and its advisory personnel value the trust you place in us. We advise all clients, to perform the requisite due diligence on any adviser or service provider with which you partner. Background information is available on the Investment Adviser Public Disclosure website at www.adviserinfo.sec.gov.

Additionally, GC and its supervised persons are not registered, nor have an application pending to register, as a futures commission merchant, commodity pool operator, commodity trading advisor, insurance agent or as an associated person of any entity engaged in the foregoing fields.
We don’t recommend any other investment advisors to clients. We are only interested in managing client portfolios on a discretionary basis and compensated from satisfied clients.
Mr. MacIntosh owns Capitalist Exploits. This is a financial newsletter providing investment analysis and ideas. Both Messrs. MacIntosh and McFadden are contributors to the newsletter.
In addition to his role with Glenorchy Capital Ltd., Mr. McFadden is owner of Right Path Financial publisher of an investment newsletter. Through this business entity, Mr. McFadden provides general investment advice to Australian citizen clients. This activity occupies approximately 10% of the hours Mr. McFadden devotes to business.
GC has a British Virgin Islands Approved Investment Manager license.
GC has adopted a Code of Ethics pursuant to SEC rule 204A-1 for all supervised persons of the Firm describing its high standards of business conduct and fiduciary duty to its clients. The Code includes provisions relating to the confidentiality of client information, a prohibition on insider trading, guidelines surrounding gifts and business entertainment, personal securities trading, and conflicts of interest, among other things.
Our Code of Ethics is designed to assure that our associated persons’ personal securities transactions, activities, and interests will not adversely impact advisory clients.
Supervised persons are permitted to maintain personal securities accounts provided any personal investing by a supervised person in any accounts in which the person has a beneficial interest is consistent with our personal trading guidelines and applicable regulatory requirements. All reportable transactions are reported to the Chief Compliance Officer in accordance with the reporting requirements outlined in the Code, and personal trading is monitored in order to reasonably prevent conflicts of interest between GC and its clients.
.An access person is defined as a supervised person who has access to non-public information regarding clients’ purchase or sale of securities, is involved in making recommendations to clients, or has access to such recommendations that are non-public.
CODE OF ETHICS DESCRIPTION
This code does not attempt to identify all possible conflicts of interest, and literal compliance with each of its specific provisions will not shield associated persons from liability for personal trading or other conduct that violates a fiduciary duty to advisory clients. A summary of the Code of Ethics’ Principles is outlined below.
We periodically review and amend our Code of Ethics to ensure that it remains current, and we require all firm access persons to attest to their understanding of and adherence to the Code of Ethics initially and at least annually thereafter. Our firm will provide of copy of its Code of Ethics to any client or prospective client upon request. You may request a copy at any time by contacting us at [email protected], or [email protected]
PURCHASING AND TRADING SAME SECURITIES AS THOSE INVESTED IN CLIENT PORTFOLIOS
GC permits its supervised persons to purchase and sell securities that are bought and sold in client portfolios. Since front-running is possible when supervised persons and clients invest in the same securities, GC requires priority of execution for client’s orders ahead of those for any supervised person.
Directed Brokerage: GC generally requires clients to direct GC to use Interactive Brokers (“IB”) as the client’s custodian and trade execution broker. Not all advisers require clients to direct brokerage. GC, as a result of this direction, does not have the discretion to select another broker/dealer for trade execution or to negotiate commission rates. Consequently, GC may be unable to achieve most favorable execution of client transactions. This practice may cost clients more money. GC is not affiliated with IB and receives no special financial or other incentives for its relationship with IB.
Factors we consider in requiring IB or any other custodial broker include access/ability to trade and hold international securities, respective financial strength, reputation, on-line account viewing/trading access, trade execution (including block/aggregate trading and allocation), pricing, research, and account administration and reporting services. The commissions, transaction, and overall fees charged by IB may be higher or lower than those charged by other Financial Institutions.
In addition to the factors listed in the paragraph above, GC is offered or provided support services and/or products from IB, which consists of:investment-related research
Soft Dollar Arrangements: GC does not have any soft dollar arrangements or commitments to obtain any research or research related products or services in connection with client securities transactions. The support services shown above are offered/provided to GC based on the overall relationship between GC and IB. The offer/provision is not the result of any soft dollar arrangement or any other express arrangements that involve the execution of client transactions as a condition to the receipt of services.
The availability of these benefits from IB creates a conflict of interest for GC in that the availability of these products and services presents a financial incentive for us to require that GC’s clients use IB’s custodial platform rather than another custodian’s platform. However, GC will continue to receive the services regardless of the volume of client transactions executed with IB. Clients do not pay more to IB for services as a result of this arrangement. Any research that GC purchases from independent parties will be funded entirely by GC itself.
Brokerage for Client Referrals: GC does not recommend a custodial broker to clients based on our interest in receiving client referrals.
Best Execution: As a fiduciary, with respect to transactions the Firm implements on behalf of its advisory clients who do not direct brokerage to a specific firm, we have an obligation to seek to obtain the most favorable terms reasonably available under the circumstances. GC seeks to execute client transactions in such a manner that the client’s total cost or proceeds in each transaction is the most favorable under the circumstances.
Trade Allocation and Aggregation: GC will, but is not obligated to, aggregate trades in certain circumstances. If trades are aggregated, participating clients will receive an average share price, and transaction costs will be shared equally and on a pro-rata basis. Aggregating trades allows us to execute trades in a more timely and more equitable manner. No client or account will be favored over another.
Prior to entry of an aggregated order, an order submission is completed which identifies each client account participating in the order and the proposed allocation of the order, upon completion, to those clients. In the rare instances when an order cannot be executed in full, we will allocate the transaction according to a random allocation method in order to not favor any one client over another.
Mutual Fund Share Class Selection: Mutual funds generally make available multiple share classes for investment based upon certain eligibility and/or purchase requirements. Institutional share classes usually have a lower expense ratio than other share classes. When recommending investments in mutual funds, it is our policy to review and consider available share classes. The Firm’s policy is to select the most appropriate share classes based on various factors including, but not limited to minimum investment requirements, trading restrictions, internal expense structure, transaction charges, availability, and other factors. When considering all the appropriate factors, we can select a share class other than the ‘lowest cost’ share class. We consider retail, institutional, or other share classes of the same mutual fund. Regardless of such considerations, clients should not assume that they will be invested in the share class with the lowest possible expense ratio. Clients should review the mutual fund prospectus to learn more about the fees and expenses related to the mutual funds GC selects or recommends. The choice of share classes is a complex issue. Please discuss this with your Advisor to ensure that you understand the choices involved.
Also, in some instances, legacy positions that are already held at the inception of the account may be retained when that class is deemed to be the most appropriate available class. We periodically review the mutual funds held in client accounts to select the most appropriate share classes in light of our duty to obtain the best execution. Regardless which share class is held, GC does not receive any revenues from mutual fund companies.
While the underlying securities within Client accounts are monitored on an on-going basis, the accounts are reviewed at least quarterly relative to each Client’s stated investment objective(s) and guidelines. More frequent reviews may be triggered by material changes in variables such as the Client’s individual circumstances or the market, political or economic environment.
Clients receive written monthly statements (or quarterly if there is no monthly activity) and confirmations of transactions directly from Interactive Brokers (IB) (or any other custodian/broker the client has chosen) detailing account holdings and all activity within the account, including all contributions, withdrawals (including fees assessed by GC), and purchase/sell transactions. It is our policy to discuss portfolios with Clients no less frequently than annually. GC does not provide any reporting to clients. At any time, clients are free to log on to their own IB accounts, analyze holdings and download appropriate reports.
Brad McFadden reviews client portfolios.
We do not receive any economic benefit, directly or indirectly, from any third party for advice rendered to our clients. GC does not have any client referral relationships.
To paraphrase the relevant rule under the Advisers Act, custody is having access to or control over client assets. In simple terms, GC does not accept general custody of client funds or securities. We are not granted access by our clients which would enable us to randomly withdraw, transfer, or otherwise move funds or cash from a client’s account to someone else’s account. While GC does not have or take physical custody of client assets, the Firm does have a form of custody in that our standard client agreement enables us to deduct advisory fees directly from client accounts. All client assets are held and maintained with Interactive Brokers, a qualified, third-party, independent custodian and agent of the client.
GC provides management services on a discretionary basis. This means that you grant us authority to supervise and direct the trading of the securities in your account(s) without contacting you before trades are executed.
Investment discretion is explained to clients in detail when an advisory relationship has commenced. At the start of the advisory relationship, the client will execute a Limited Power of Attorney as part of an Investment Advisory Agreement, which will grant our firm discretionary trading authority over the account. Additionally, the discretionary relationship will be outlined in the advisory agreement and signed by the client.
It should be noted that with regard to commission rates, GC does not have the power to determine the rates paid – this is a relationship between the client and Interactive Brokers
As a matter of Firm policy, GC does not accept proxy voting authority with respect to client securities. Clients retain the responsibility for receiving and voting proxies for all securities maintained in client portfolios. Clients should receive proxy materials directly from the issuer or the custodian (i.e., Interactive Brokers). Clients may contact GC for assistance regarding proxy issues.
Further, the Firm has no responsibility to render legal advice or take any legal action on Client’s behalf with respect to securities currently or previously held in Client account or the issuers thereof, that become the subject of legal proceedings, including bankruptcy proceedings or class actions.
Neither GC, nor its management has any adverse financial situations that would reasonably impair the ability of GC to meet all obligations to its clients.
Neither GC, nor any of its advisory persons, has been subject to a bankruptcy or financial compromise. GC is not required to deliver a balance sheet along with this brochure, as the firm does not collect advance fees for services to be performed six months or more in advance.
GC does not take any prepayment of any fees from clients. Fees are always billed in arrears. Please see Item 5. Fees and Compensation for additional information.
