Objectives and Strategy

To maximise total returns to the investor by borrowing to invest in a portfolio of property securities from around the world. The option aims to outperform the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Developed Index hedged to Australian dollars over rolling seven-year periods before fees and taxes.
The option invests in property securities around the world. These investments may include commercial, retail and industrial and, to a lesser extent, car parks, hotels, leisure properties and other property-related investments. Each security is ranked within each region according to valuation and qualitative measures. The option utilises gearing to magnify returns from underlying investments. The option aims to hedge its currency exposure.

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.
