Objectives and Strategy

The Fund is designed to provide investors with a diversified portfolio of smaller Australian companies that aims to outperform its benchmark over rolling three-year periods.
The Fund will primarily be invested in the shares of companies listed on the ASX, but not included in the ASX 100 at the time they are first acquired on behalf of the Fund. Up to 10% of the Fund can be invested in unlisted companies, usually those that intend to list within six months. The Fund may also invest in listed New Zealand companies and a proportion may also be held in cash. The Fund can invest in listed equity securities or hybrid equity securities such as convertible notes, redeemable preference shares and partly paid shares.

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.
