Investment Objective
Aims to achieve annualised returns of CPI+1-2% over rolling 3-year periods before fees with a low level of variability in returns.
Typical Investor
Cautious investors who are not comfortable with significant fluctuations in the value of their investments.
Investment Strategy and Approach
This is an actively managed, diversified portfolio of securities across: defensive asset classes, such as cash and fixed interest securities; diversifying assets such as higher yielding credit and alternatives; and growth asset classes such as Australian equities, global equities and property securities. By assessing how expensive asset classes are, Schroders forecasts future returns and the risk of loss to determine the most suitable asset allocation consistent with the investment objective. The resulting portfolio is diversified across a broad array of assets and securities, with strong emphasis on delivering the objectives with an acceptable level of risk.
