Objectives and Strategy

Smallco expects that a typical investor in the Smallco Investment Fund would be seeking some income but mostly capital growth and understands and accepts that the value of their investment can rise and fall. The Smallco Investment Fund is not a short-term investment and Smallco suggests that investors adopt a minimum three year time horizon for investment in this Fund.
Smallco invests mostly in smaller Australian listed companies, but may invest up to 20% of the Fund in larger Australian listed companies and may also hold some cash. The Manager classifies a smaller company as one outside the top 100 ASX listed companies by market capitalisation at the time the Fund makes its initial investment. Smallco focuses particularly on companies with $100 million to $500 million market capitalisation.

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.
