Investment Objective

Provide investors with enhanced long-term capital growth through borrowing (gearing) to invest in a diversified portfolio of Australian shares - Outperform the S&P/ASX300 Accumulation Index (before fees and tax) over rolling three-year periods.

Investment Approach

The Investment Option combines investment managers with different investment styles and philosophies. The Investment Option is managed according to its investment guidelines which have a set exposure to each investment manager. Each Investment Option is regularly reviewed and re-weighted to the set investment guideline. Re-weighting means realigning the asset allocation to the investment guidelines for each investment manager. This can help reduce the volatility of the investment by avoiding over exposure to a particular investment manager that has grown more quickly than another.

The fund borrows to gear its investment exposure. The borrowings are secured against the Fund's assets. The income of the Fund, which includes dividends and interest from the underlying investments, is used to service the interest cost of borrowings. Please read the Product Disclosure Statement for more information on the gearing policy.
