NorthStar Ethical Balanced Growth Portfolio

Investment Objective

The NorthStar Ethical Balanced Growth Portfolio is suitable for investors who are seeking to invest ‘ethically’ and require a balance between capital growth and capital security. The portfolio is constructed using a broad range of assets which may include equities, fixed income, property, infrastructure, alternative investments and cash. The diversification of this portfolio will insulate investors from some short-term market volatility. Investments are predominantly held in assets that seek to promote environmental, ethical, sustainable and socially responsible causes and exclude companies that promote or produce tobacco, fossil fuels, arms, gambling, animal testing and similar activities. Equity content will typically be around 70%, meaning the portfolio will exhibit moderate downside risk to achieve the required level of capital growth.

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 key objective of the portfolio is to adhere to high ethical, sustainable and socially responsible standards at all times. These considerations will always take precedence over portfolio returns. The portfolio targets capital growth in excess of 5-6% per annum over a rolling 5-year period and is benchmarked against the IA Volatility Managed sector average. Values may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount originally invested.
