Diversified Assets Fund
The Diversified Assets Fund is a diversified unit-linked fund that invests in and targets equal exposure to four asset classes: equities, bonds, property and commodities.
It aims to reduce the volatility of investment returns by investing in a combination of asset classes with low correlations, while maintaining the potential to deliver strong returns.
- Actively managed multi-asset fund with equal investments in equities, bonds, property and commodities.
- Indicative allocation to each asset class: 20% to 30% of the value of the fund.
- Risk rating: 4
How it works
The fund gains exposure to the various asset classes by investing in the following funds: International Equity Fund, Active Fixed Income Fund, European (Ex-UK) Property Fund, Australasia Property Fund and Global Energy & Metals Fund.
To maintain a balanced portfolio, the fund will be monitored and rebalanced if any asset class moves significantly outside its guideline exposure. Exposure to each asset class will be reset to 25% on rebalancing.
The fund is managed from the point of view of a eurozone investor and as this fund invests some of its assets outside the eurozone, a currency risks arises for a euro investor.
