Description of target market for this fund
This product is likely to be appropriate for a consumer seeking capital growth and regular income to be used as a small allocation within a portfolio where the consumer has a medium-to-long investment timeframe and a medium-to-high risk/return profile.
Withdrawal requests are generally processed monthly according to specified withdrawal dates. We aim to process the payment of withdrawal requests within 10 business days of each specified withdrawal date, but may take longer in certain circumstances as is allowed under the fund constitution, or where the fund is considered to be illiquid under the Corporations Act. The Funds available for withdrawals are limited and payment amounts will be scaled back where withdrawal requests exceed the available funds for the relevant month.
The fund may be suitable for a consumer with a moderate-to-high risk profile, seeking to minimise potential losses (e.g., has the ability to bear up to four negative returns over a 20-year period (SRM 5)) and is comfortable with a moderate-to-high target return profile.
What are the risks?
All investing involves risk, and you should consider investment risks and read the Product Disclosure Statement before making an investment decision. The risks specific to the fund may include or be associated with:
- Liquidity: assets subject to liquidity risk may be difficult to trade, and it may take longer for their full value to be realised. A drop in the liquidity level of the Fund increases the risk that the amount of cash available to the Fund to meet withdrawal requests may be reduced. This could result in the part or non-payment of withdrawal amounts, a reduction in the frequency of withdrawals or a freeze on withdrawal requests.
- Property investments: factors that may affect the performance of the Fund, include the quality of underlying properties, geographic location, costs and losses associated with natural disasters, or other events outside our control, demand and supply for commercial properties, the rental profile of the properties owned and the level of rental income.
- Share market investments: the value of the Fund’s investment in listed securities may decrease or be more volatile as a result of adverse share market movements.
- International investments: including losses related to currency exchange rates, hedging, and changes in the state of the Australian and world economies.
- Derivatives: the use of derivatives may magnify any losses incurred.
- Gearing: gearing has the effect of magnifying a fund’s returns, both positive and negative which means that the risk of loss of capital may be greater than if gearing did not take place. Additionally, increases in interest rates may affect the cost of a fund’s borrowings and so reduce the fund’s returns.
- Interest rates: including the risk of capital loss in a rising interest rate environment.
- Investment management: there is a risk that the investment manager will not perform to expectation or factors such as changes to the investment team or a change of investment manager may affect the Fund’s performance.
- Market risk: Certain events may have a negative effect on the price of all types of investments within a particular market These events include economic, social, technological or political conditions, as well as market sentiment, the causes of which may include changes in government policies, political unrest, wars, terrorism, pandemics and natural, nuclear and environmental disasters.
The fund's risk level is based on the estimated number of negative annual returns for the fund over any 20 year period and is not a complete assessment of the risks of investing in the fund. For instance it does not detail what the size of a negative return could be or the potential for a positive return to be less than an investor may require to meet their objectives. Consequently, before choosing to invest or reinvest in the fund, you should read the fund's PDS and incorporated information and consider factors such as the likely investment return, the risks of investing and your investment time frame.
