Objectives and Strategy

Aims to provide capital growth over the long-term by investing in undervalued listed and unlisted investments around the world . Minimum suggested time horizon is 5 or more years.
Invests primarily in securities listed on sharemarkets around the world. The Fund is likely to consist of around 50-100 stocks, that the Manager believes to be undervalued by the market. Where undervalued stocks cannot be found, funds may be invested in cash. The Manager may short sell shares that it considers to be over-valued.

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.
