Investment approach

The Asset Allocation Strategy Group uses the output from three proprietary research groups to formulate its macroeconomic and thematic views, and defines the investment environment used to build asset allocation portfolios. This is combined with a valuation framework across all asset classes, and is used by the group to determine its preferred asset allocation and risk preferences, whilst prioritising the fund’s income objective.

The security selection within both equity and fixed income is designed to generate income to achieve the 5% income objective. The natural income that is generated through the allocation to equities and fixed income is then supplemented with a covered call strategy to enhance its yield. The fund is actively managed at the overall portfolio level, as well as within each asset class.
Proven and repeatable investment process
