Objectives and Strategy

To closely track the MSCI World (ex Australia) Index, hedged to Australian dollars, with the aim of generating returns (before tax and fees and assuming income is reinvested) comparable to the world sharemarkets as measured by that benchmark (hedged) over rolling three-year periods.
Detailed risk analysis is used to design a portfolio of shares which provides the greatest likelihood of matching the performance of the MSCI World (ex Australia) Index, hedged to Australian dollars. This option aims to hedge currency risk.

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.
