What is it?

The Moderate Growth option is the default investment option that is only available in the NGS Income Account product. This option includes most of the asset classes that NGS Super uses but has a higher weighting to investments in assets with the potential for medium to long-term growth, such as shares, infrastructure and property, and assets that provide greater levels of liquidity to meet the income needs during retirement.

This is the option your money will be invested in if you do not advise us of your investment choice.

How it works

Investment performance objective
The objective is to achieve a net return of 3% above inflation per annum over rolling five year periods.

Investment time frame
Medium term, 10 years +. This option may be right for you if you seek to achieve attractive long term returns, whilst accepting a reasonable level of volatility in returns. This option has a lower allocation to growth assets versus the diversified option and corresponding lower expected volatility and returns. 

Risk profile

Risk over each time horizon
5 years 10 years 20 years
Medium to high Medium Low

Expected frequency of negative return over 20 year period - 3 in 20 years.
