Investment Objective

Aims to: provide long-term capital growth and regular income through investment in a diversified portfolio of growth and income assets; outperform a composite benchmark (before fees and taxes) reflecting its allocation to the various asset types over rolling three-year periods; outperform CPI + 4.5% pa (before fees and taxes) over at least three-year periods.

Investment Approach

The Fund invests in a diverse mix of growth, defensive and other assets.

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.

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. Exposure to foreign currency will be limited to 50% of the gross asset value of the Fund.
