    Indicative asset allocation and ranges

    * The strategic asset allocation is indicative of the expected asset allocation during stable market environments.

    † The dynamic asset allocation range is used to respond to changes in the investing environment.

    ‡ The full range (including equity risk management) is used during times of high equity market volatility. An additional equity risk management process is used to reduce equity market exposure.

  • Income earned on your investment in the Income Generator option accrues in the option unit price. Quarterly income distributions will result in the Income Generator unit price being reduced to an ex-distribution price. An income distribution will be made to your Cash and Term Deposit option shortly after the unit price adjustment.

Please note: 

  • The Income Generator option was introduced 30 July 2014
  • The since inception returns include income distributions
