NorthStar Cautious Growth Portfolio

Investment Objective

The NorthStar Cautious Growth Portfolio is suitable for investors who are seeking capital growth and require some degree of capital security, protecting their investment from some short-term market fluctuation. The portfolio is constructed using a broad range of assets which may include equities, fixed income, property, infrastructure, alternative investments and cash. The diversification and low-risk construction of this portfolio will insulate investors from some short-term market volatility and provide some capital protection. Equity exposure will typically be around 50%, meaning long-term returns may be lower than some portfolios in the NorthStar range to achieve the required level of capital security.

Due to the nature of underlying holdings, investment in this portfolio should be seen as a long-term strategy. Risk aspects include inflation risk, capital risk, shortfall risk, and exchange rate risk. The portfolio targets capital growth in excess of 4-5% per annum over a rolling 5-year period and is benchmarked against the IA Mixed Investment 20-60% Shares sector average. Values may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount originally invested.

Portfolio Risk

The NorthStar Cautious Growth Portfolio is a lower-risk investment strategy that is likely to exhibit lower than average volatility and downside risk to achieve the required level of capital growth.
