Fund objective
The fund seeks to achieve an average annual return of CPI + 3% over any 5-year period, after all fees, with about half the risk of a pure equity exposure. Though the mandate favours equity investment, the investment manager has the latitude to actively allocate between different asset classes to protect values and reduce volatility. The fund aims to maximise returns in USD terms.
