Fund objective and strategy
The fund aims to achieve positive long-term returns by investing in selected Australian shares, subject to the risks associated with investments in international share markets.
We may invest directly into these assets, or into other managed investment schemes that do so.
These kinds of investments will typically have very high levels of movement up and down in value. They can be suitable for someone who wants to invest in shares and is comfortable with that level of movement, with a view to achieving higher longer-term returns.
The risk indicator is rated from 1 (low) to 7 (high). The rating reflects how much the value of the relevant fund’s assets goes up and down (volatility). A higher risk generally means higher potential returns over time, but more ups and down along the way. See section 4 of the PDS ‘What are the risks of investing?’ for more information.
