The objective of the Fund is to generate long term returns by investing in a range of listed securities. The Fund is an equities portfolio designed for investors in the pension phase and may also be suitable for charities. The Fund will invest in companies who provide sustainable and growing income and through portfolio construction will have the primary objectives of having lower portfolio volatility than the Australian stock market and out-performing this market during periods of market weakness. It is a diversified, long only portfolio of 30-50 stocks. The Fund will be managed on the basis that all unit holders have a zero tax rate and will report and be measured on an after tax basis (allowing for franking credits).
The Fund invests in listed Australian and New Zealand securities together with a maximum exposure of 20% to listed securities in other international markets. The Fund can hold up to 20% of the portfolio in cash.
The manager will use CI's VoF research framework to assess individual companies and industries and to construct a diversified portfolio that aims to achieve the risk and return objectives. This means that we seek to invest in quality companies with a strong value proposition. The level of exposure to specific companies, industries and markets will be selected by CI's small, focused, experienced team using our VoF investment process.
The Manager will not invest in companies whose primary business is the production of tobacco, controversial weapons or gambling.
It will be assumed that all unit holders have a zero tax rate.
