Investment Objective

The multi-manager portfolio is managed based on a core-satellite approach, combining both active management and index investment strategies. The core of the portfolio is invested in passive portfolios, while the satellites are invested in actively managed portfolios. This portfolio is aimed at investors with a long-term investment horizon and has an inflation objective of CPI plus 3% over any rolling 3-year period. The actual asset allocation of the portfolio may vary from strategic asset allocation due to market movement or tactical asset allocation decisions made from time to time by the portfolio manager.

Investment Approach

The portfolio aims to provide investment income and capital growth over the long term through investing primarily in local and international equity, fixed interest and cash instruments. The portfolio is optimized to have the highest probability of meeting the real return target over a 3 year investment period while minimising volatility. The portfolio is actively managed by a combination of leading investment managers and value is added through specialist manager expertise and allocation skills.
