The Balanced Fund is a great option for investors who are looking for capital growth through a diversified portfolio, but want the convenience of leaving the asset allocation to a professional.
The aim of the Fund is to provide long-term growth through shares, fixed income and commodity investments from Australia and overseas.
- You want to easily diversify your portfolio using a single fund and are looking for fewer ups and downs than investing solely in shares.
- You can ideally invest for a minimum of three years.
- You want to increase your wealth in the long term:
The Balanced Fund invests in a combination of select shares, fixed income and commodity investments from Australia and overseas to provide long-term growth without too many ups and downs.
- You can invest $10,000 to kickstart your investment, or as little as $500 per month in a regular savings plan.

In carrying out our contrarian investment approach, the Balanced Fund has significant freedom to invest in different asset classes to take advantage of the best opportunities. This means we have great flexibility and can capitalise when markets are cheap. Our target range is to have anything between 40%-90% of the Fund invested in shares and 10%-50% in fixed income, depending on where the opportunities are.
As a result, the Balanced Fund can look very different to other funds of its kind, as the investment mix is based on finding the best value. For example, when Australian shares are expensive, more of the fund may be invested in global shares. The same applies for other asset classes and regions.
