About Us

Cyan is a Melbourne based firm that aims to provide meaningful positive returns for investors.

Cyan Investment Management was founded, and is owned, by the two fund managers, Graeme Carson and Dean Fergie, both of whom hold significant personal investments in the Cyan C3G Fund.

At Cyan, we do not want to be all things to all people. We believe you should do one thing and do it well. As such we run just one fund, and invest (long only) in ASX listed small capitalisation companies.

We deal directly with our investors and offer peerless transparency though regular investment reporting and high liquidity through monthly unit pricing, applications and redemptions.


Cyan Investment Management holds Australian Financial Services License (AFSL) no: 453209

Why Cyan?

Cyan is one of the subtractive primary colours, and is produced when red light is removed from white.

As red is synonymous with losing money (“in the red”) we believe it perfectly reflects our investment philosophy, to generate meaningful positive returns by not only investing in quality businesses but by explicitly avoiding poor ones.

Graeme Carson

Director & Portfolio Manager

Prior to setting up Cyan, Graeme spent 20 years in the Australian financial markets industry working for companies including Macquarie, Bankers Trust and Bell Potter. The majority of his working life has been spent as a Senior Analyst researching and valuing ASX listed companies of all sizes across many different sectors. His fundamental analysis focuses mainly on high quality companies which satisfy his “value investment” criteria.
