Objectives and Strategy

The Fund aims to outperform the UBS Composite Bond Index over the medium term (before fees) while providing a level of risk similar to that of an Australian fixed interest fund. It aims to provide a consistent level of income with some capital growth by using a diversified investment strategy.
The Fund provides exposure to an actively managed diversified portfolio of Australian fixed interest securities. The Fund may also provide exposure to international fixed interest, such as global sovereign bonds, as well as an exposure to global investment grade credit securities, global high yield credit securities, emerging market debt and a range of other credit opportunities when they are expected to outperform and reduce exposure to these sectors when they are expected to underperform.

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.
