About the Fund
The Fund seeks to provide exposure to tactical asset allocation decisions between Australian equities, Australian bonds and cash based on an assessment of the relative valuations of these asset classes.
The investment manager's approach is premised on the philosophy that the Australian equity market is efficient over the long term but "short-term inefficient - disciplined investors can exploit short-term market movements to add long-term value.
The Fund is tilted toward the relatively undervalued asset class in the expectation that the undervalued asset class will outperform as it returns to assessed fair value.
The investment manager relies on complementary fundamental and quantitative research, and collective insights into the current investment landscape, to identify the most attractive market opportunities.
How we invest your money
The Fund is designed to be used as part of a Unit holder's overall investment portfolio.
The Fund will generally be managed in accordance with the following asset allocation guidelines:
(Asset class: Minimum / Total strategic allocation / Maximum)
Therefore, an investment of 10% of Unit holder's overall investment portfolio (assuming 5% from the target strategic allocation to Australian equities and 5% from the target strategic allocation to Australian fixed income/cash) provides asset allocation through ranges of Â±10% either side of the Unit holder's overall investment portfolio allocation to Australian equities and Australian fixed income/cash.
The Fund will use derivatives to implement tactical asset allocation decisions between Australian equities and Australian bonds/cash within the ranges identified. Where the Fund has exposure of more than 100% to an asset class, the derivatives will not be covered by cash or other securities. To the extent that the Fund's derivatives are not covered, the Fund will be leveraged. The Fund does not intend to undertake any other form of borrowing.
