Objectives and Strategy

To provide returns in excess of the RBA Cash Rate over rolling three-year periods before fees and taxes, with a relatively low degree of volatility. This will be achieved by combining cash and short duration fixed interest investments with long and short Australian equity holdings chosen using Acadian's equity process. Sophisticated portfolio construction techniques will be used to implement this in a way that limits equity market exposure.
The option's strategy is to adopt an active approach to managing a portfolio of money market and fixed income securities along with stocks listed on the Australian Securities Exchange. The option will seek to enhance returns by taking long and short positions in securities generally listed on the Australian Securities Exchange. The long/short structure aims to minimise equity market risk whilst benefiting from franking credits and Acadian's sophisticated analytical models for stock selection.
