Investment Models
Investment Objective
The objective of the portfolio is to provide an actively managed diversified portfolio for an investor with a need for a stable level of income and who is not comfortable with high levels of fluctuation in the value of their portfolio. The portfolio is also designed to deliver a modest amount of growth to provide some protection against inflation with an overall return objective of CPI plus 1-2%. In order to achieve this objective the portfolio will have long term allocation to defensive or income assets in the range of 70% and 30% to growth assets.
Typical Investor
The typical investor is more risk averse and sustainable income levels are considered the primary objective. The investor is comfortable with a higher weighting to income producing assets such as fixed interest investments and only a small allocation to equities among other asset classes. The portfolio would suit investors in the latter stage of their life where growth is a secondary consideration or investors uncomfortable with market fluctuations and where short term preservation of capital is of high importance.
Investment Strategy and Approach
Actively managed portfolio with a Strategic Asset Allocation of 70% to income assets and 30% to growth assets.

      Investment Objective
      The objective is to provide an actively managed diversified portfolio for an investor who is looking for a portfolio that will provide growth over the longer term as the primary objective but will also provide a modest level of protection in a falling market.

In order to achieve this objective the portfolio's long-term asset allocation will be split approximately 70% to growth and 30% to income assets with a total return objective of CPI +3-4%. Exposure to growth assets will be diversified across both domestic and international equity and property asset classes.
      Typical Investor
      The typical investor is focused on growing the total value of their portfolio through a combination of both capital growth and income. The portfolio would suit investors with a perpetual or long time horizon and with a higher degree of tolerance for risk and fluctuation in portfolio value.
