What is it?
This option focuses on investing in assets which provide the prospect for income and capital growth. It aims to reduce the risk of negative returns by having a high allocation to real assets, such as infrastructure and property, which provide long term contracted income and greater price stability relative to listed shares.
INVESTMENT PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVE
The objective is to achieve a net return of 4% above CPI per annum over rolling ten year periods.
INVESTMENT TIME FRAME

This option may be right for you if you seek attractive long-term returns through higher levels of income-producing assets that aim to grow with inflation, whilst limiting variability in capital growth. This option is suitable if you are seeking a greater degree of stability of returns over the medium to long term.
