How we invest your money
At Pendal, we actively manage our portfolios to meet their investment objectives by diversifying investments across both asset classes and strategies. We employ three main approaches to do this:
The underlying investments in the Fund are managed by Pendal together with a number of external partners. Pendal manages investments in the asset classes of Australian shares, Australian fixed interest and cash, global fixed interest, Australian property securities and alternative investments. These investments are augmented by our arrangements with leading global investment managers who have a competitive advantage in the management of global asset classes.
The Pendal Multi-Asset team also manages an active asset allocation process designed to increase portfolio returns within a defined risk budget.
The Fund invests in Australian and international shares, Australian and international listed property securities, Australian and international fixed interest, cash and alternative investments. The Fund may also use derivatives. The Fund has a significant weighting towards growth assets.
Asset Classes, Asset Allocation Ranges and Neutral Position
Alternative investments refer to a range of investments that do not fall within the four main asset classes of shares, property, fixed interest and cash. They can be based on publicly traded securities like shares, bonds and derivatives, which include hedge funds, absolute return funds and commodity investments. Some alternatives are based on private securities; these include venture capital and private equity. Investment strategies that may be found in some alternative investments include the use of gearing, short selling (selling something you do not own with a view to buying it back later at a lower price), and more extensive use of derivatives.
