Conservative IndexThis portfolio is diversified across local and global equities, listed property, interest-bearing assets (including inflation-linked bonds) and cash. It invests in underlying index-tracking funds, benefiting from their substantially lower fees and significantly reduced uncertainty of performance relative to the market. Lower fees and efficient investment indexation processes minimise the tracking error on the overall returns. The portfolio rebalances annually, keeping trading costs to a minimum, while ensuring that the portfolio partakes in the intended combination of returns originating from each asset class.
This solution is suitable for investors wanting considerably less volatility than pure equity portfolios, with a conservative to moderate long-term capital growth profile.
The portfolio complies with Regulation 28 of the Pension Funds Act.
