Perpetual Diversified Real Return Fund - Class W

Perpetual Diversified Real Return Fund - Class W

The Perpetual Diversified Real Return Fund invests across a range of strategies, regions and sectors.

The Perpetual Diversified Real Return Fund invests across a range of strategies, regions and sectors. The Fund targets a pre-tax return of 5% per annum above inflation, before fees and taxes, over rolling five-year periods, while minimising downside risk

The Fund aims to achieve this return with lower levels of volatility than a traditional balanced fund. Diversifying the sources of risk to form a more efficient multi-asset portfolio and seeking to reduce the uncertainty of investment outcomes over the investment horizon and protect returns against inflation.

We apply a dynamic asset allocation approach to managing the Fund, which means that we are not constrained by fixed asset allocation ranges. Instead, we have the flexibility to actively shift the investment exposures to capture the best opportunities – wherever they are found.

Class W is the standard fee option.

Features and benefits

'Whole of portfolio' solution

Investments are focused on opportunities

Lower volatility

Wide variety of investment opportunities

‘Whole of portfolio' solution

There are a number of ways we take an integrated approach to managing our portfolios. This includes defining the clear role of each investment in achieving a portfolio’s investment objectives and centrally managing risks at the portfolio level rather than in isolation.

Investments are focused on opportunities

We focus on using the broadest set of investment opportunities. This means that our asset allocation is always changing, not only to capture the best returns but also to minimise the risk of loss.

Lower volatility

Because the Fund is focused on managing overall volatility, we aim to provide a smooth and consistent sequence of returns for investors. Our approach seeks to lower risk and protect capital.

Wide variety of investment opportunities

The Fund can invest in some harder to access investment opportunities, such as unlisted property, private equity, infrastructure, frontier markets and commodities strategies; as well as traditional assets.

What Are The Risks?

All investments carry risk. While it is not possible to identify every risk relevant to your investment, we have provided details of the risks that may affect your investment in the relevant product disclosure statement (PDS) or offer document.

You can find PDSs and other documents in our resources section. The relevant PDS, offer documents and forms can also be found in the sections below:

Investment Approach

The Fund will invest in a diversified range of asset classes. The combination of assets held by the Fund at any time are those which we believe provide the greatest probability of achieving the target return over rolling five year periods. Perpetual may adjust the Fund's asset allocation to respond to changing market conditions and/or to take advantage of new opportunities. In managing the Fund to meet its investment objective, the Fund may implement a considerable amount of its exposures via derivatives, and may include alternative and private market assets. Currency is managed at the Fund level, taking into account currency exposure arising from underlying investments. Currency management is used to either hedge currency for an existing position or create an exposure to a foreign currency. Net foreign currency exposure will be limited to 50% of the gross asset value of the Fund. Investment in illiquid assets will be limited to 18% of the net asset value of the Fund.
