Objectives and Strategy

To provide long-term capital growth by predominantly investing in resource companies from around the world. The option aims to outperform the HSBC Global Mining Accumulation Index (75%) and the MSCI AC World Energy Net Index (25%) over rolling seven year periods before fees and taxes.
The option's strategy is to add value over the medium-to-long term by investing in quality global resource companies. Rather than attempting to predict commodity price movements, we choose to focus on quality resource companies around the world. These companies typically have strong balance sheets, quality management, high quality assets and a low cost of production. The option does not hedge currency risk.

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.
