Fund Objective
To magnify long-term returns by borrowing to invest in growth assets. To outperform the option's composite benchmark over rolling three-year periods before fees and taxes.
Fund Strategy
To allocate 90% of investments to a diversified portfolio of shares, property and infrastructure securities. The portfolio is allocated across a number of leading investment managers. The portfolio will also allocate 10% to investments designed to generate additional income. The portfolio's gearing effectively magnifies returns from the underlying investments, whether they are gains or losses. The portfolio aims to hedge currency risk except for the allocation to emerging market shares and part of the allocation to global shares.
