How we invest your money

Pendal's investment process for Australian shares is based on our core investment style and aims to add value through active stock selection and fundamental company research. Pendal's core investment style is to select stocks based on our assessment of their long term worth and ability to outperform the market, without being restricted by a growth or value bias. Our fundamental company research focuses on valuation, franchise, management quality and risk factors (both financial and non-financial risk).

Asset Classes and Asset Allocation Ranges*

  • Australian shares: 70%-100%
  • Cash: 0%-30%

*The reference to the Fund investing in an asset class includes all types of investments which give exposure to that asset, directly or indirectly, including through derivatives and investment in other funds which invest primarily in that asset class, and through any type of investment which would ordinarily be understood in financial markets to be included in that asset class. It does not preclude investment in other types of assets where we consider it appropriate to do so in the interests of investors.
