Objectives and Strategy

To provide market returns through investment in international equity securities.
To match the MSCI World ex-Australia Index hedged in Australian dollars with net dividends reinvested by investing in regional index funds in weights given by the market capitalisation of each region in the Index. In turn, each of these regional funds use a full replication methodology to track the performance of the appropriate regional index by investing in securities in proportions determined by the market capitalisation of each security in each regional index.

Be rewarded for investing!

Recently, the federal government introduced a package of reforms known as the Future of Financial Advice - FoFA for short. Among other things, the package bans trailing fees and other commissions for new investments in retail investment products from 1 July 2013. That's good news for investors!

Unfortunately, the reforms don't cover existing investments - so even after 1 July 2013, you could find yourself paying hidden commissions on managed funds. That means TrailCap can still save you money.
