Kinsmen was founded in 1985 by a group of leading businessmen in Adelaide to “pursue the strategic development of business opportunities in South Australia”.  Following product and geographic expansion, Kinsmen has capitalised on its strong finance and governance capabilities to become a well-established financial service provider with offices in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.

Kinsmen Principles

Market Knowledge

Kinsmen has a deep understanding of the markets it operates in. This is developed through in-depth market research and years of investment experiences and relationships. This provides us with access to off market opportunities and to implement marketing and business strategies to maximise potential returns.


Kinsmen undertakes the execution, accounting and reporting for its investments, whilst providing its investors with transparency by operating an open book approach. The quality of Kinsmen’s governance and reporting systems is acknowledged by regulators, financiers and joint venture partners alike.


Whilst Kinsmen has an enviable track record and much to be proud of, we remain conscious of the many funds management and investment companies that have followed a belief in their own infallibility – and failed. Kinsmen strives to learn from sources inside and outside our company and to assess decisions objectively. We believe scepticism and strong internal debate is the best defence against complacency and hubris.


Kinsmen is dedicated to maintaining its position as a market leader in applying best practice management to our business. We actively seek out the leading research and study overseas developments. We also have instigated a number of market leading tools and methodologies for risk identification, measurement and management that have subsequently been adopted by our competitors.
