  • What are the potential benefits of the Fund compared to an ETF?
    While an ETF may offer investors a low cost way to gain exposure to Australian shares, there are three main benefits the Fund may offer as part of your equity allocation. The Fund has a high performance target and this may complement an investment strategy that already has a passive or index-based style. This way, the Fund can act as a satellite to help increase the performance potential of your portfolio. The Fund is actively managed and the fund manager will seek to focus the exposure of the Fund towards stocks that have high performance potential. On the flipside, the Fund seeks to avoid laggards that may drag down overall portfolio performance. An index approach does not filter out poor performers, as that strategy seeks to replicate the index. These benefits are intended to be general in nature. For specific personal recommendations, please contact a qualified financial adviser. Read more about the benefits of managed funds
