About the Fund
To provide a total return, consisting of capital appreciation and income, by gaining exposure to a diversified portfolio of companies and real estate securities listed on approved developed and emerging markets, and domestic and global fixed interest securities. The Trust will seek to target approximately 50% exposure to equities and 50% exposure to fixed interest assets. The Trust is not managed with the objective of achieving a particular return relative to a benchmark index. However, to compare the performance of the Trust with a broad measure of market performance, reference may be made to a combination of market indices based on the strategic asset allocation of the Trust. For further details please refer to www.dimensional.com.au. Investors should note that the composite index is referred to for comparison purposes only. The performance of the Trust may differ significantly from the index.
How we invest your money
Normally, the Trust will gain some or all of its exposure by investing in other funds managed by the Dimensional Group (including other Dimensional Wholesale Trusts) that invest in equity, real estate and fixed interest securities. As at the date of the PDS, the Trust will seek to target approximately 50% exposure to equities (including real estate securities) and 50% exposure to fixed interest (including cash), as set out in the table above. The actual exposure may vary from the target exposure due to trading, portfolio management or market considerations.
As at the date of the PDS, it is intended that, within the Trust's equities exposure, the weighting to Australian equities will be significantly greater than this asset class would represent if it were Market Capitalisation Weighted. The underlying funds in which the Trust may invest, its allocation with respect to each underlying fund, the target allocation range, the target allocation between equities and fixed interest assets, and the investment policies of the underlying funds, may be changed at any time by Dimensional. The Trust may also gain exposure by investing directly in securities that would fall within each asset class set out above as determined by Dimensional. Please refer to Dimensional's website for updated asset allocation information.
