Growth Bond Fund

Investment Objective

To provide investors with long-term (7-10 years) tax-paid capital growth and competitive returns, while controlling short-term variability of capital.

Investment Strategy

The Growth Bond invests in a diversified portfolio of assets with the majority of assets in growth assets such as Australian and International shares and property. Exposure to property may include both direct real property investments and investments in listed and unlisted property securities. The Bond will also invest in some income producing assets such as fixed interest and cash. This investment strategy typically aims to hold 70% growth assets and 30% defensive assets.
