Objectives and Strategy

The Fund seeks to track the return (income and capital appreciation) of the S&P/ASX 300 A-REIT Index before taking into account fees, expenses, and tax.
The S&P/ASX 300 A-REIT Index comprises between 20 and 30 property securities (shares) listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). The number of securities in the index may vary from time to time. These securities are real estate investment trusts and companies that own real estate assets and derive a significant proportion of their revenue from rental income. The Fund will hold all of the securities in the index most of the time, allowing for individual security weightings to vary marginally from the index from time to time.

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.
