The NGS Property investment option mainly invests in Australian property but with some international exposure. The listed property investments (which can be bought and sold on the share market) can be subject to equity-like returns and risk. The direct property funds primarily focus on high-quality property assets in the retail, industrial and commercial sectors, and will have a low correlation to share market returns.

This option may suit you if you're after attractive long-term investment returns above inflation, with the acceptance of some short-term volatility. As a guide, this option will likely have higher volatility than bonds but lower volatility than equities.
