Objectives and Strategy

To outperform the benchmark, the S&P/ASX Small Ordinaries Accumulation Index, after fees, over rolling three year periods, by investing mainly in Australian (primarily outside the S&P/ASX 100 Accumulation Index) and New Zealand securities.
Our equity managers seek to identify and invest in good quality Australian and New Zealand listed securities through first hand company visits. Quality is chiefly an evaluation of a company's management, balance sheet and business model. Only those companies which pass our rigorous quality screen are assessed for value. We see risk in terms of investing in a poor quality company, or overpaying for a good one, and do not view risk in benchmark relative terms.
