Perpetual Wholesale Conservative Growth Fund

The Perpetual Wholesale Conservative Growth Fund aims to offer investors moderate medium-term growth as well as some income, while managing risk. The Fund is broadly diversified but with an emphasis on cash and fixed income.  A value philosophy drives active decisions around weightings between asset classes and within asset classes.

A “total portfolio” approach seeks out only the best risk adjusted returns, while portfolio protection strategies aim to protect on the downside during extreme events.

Tactical asset allocation strategies may be applied, which involves the Fund adjusting its exposure to asset classes on a regular basis within the investment guidelines.
