NorthStar Safety Portfolio

Investment Objective

The NorthStar Safety Portfolio is suitable for investors who require extremely high capital security and wish to protect their investment from short-term market fluctuation. The portfolio is constructed using a broad range of low-risk 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 the majority of short-term market volatility and provide significant capital protection. Long-term returns may be lower than other portfolios in the NorthStar range to achieve the required level of capital security.

This portfolio is not risk-free and investment in this portfolio should be seen as a long-term strategy. Risk aspects include inflation risk, shortfall risk and some exchange rate risk. The portfolio aims to provide significant downside protection, targets capital growth in excess of 2-3% per annum over a rolling 5-year period and is benchmarked against a composite of 60% IA Mixed Investment 0-35% Shares sector average and 40% IA Short Term Money Market sector average. Values may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount originally invested.

Portfolio Risk

The NorthStar Safety Portfolio is a low-risk investment strategy that is likely to exhibit very low volatility and downside risk to achieve the required level of capital growth.

Performance data are on a bid-to-bid basis, with income reinvested. Performance data do not take into account platform or advisory charges and exclude any holdings in platform ‘cash accounts’. Performance data show returns for discounted ‘super clean’ funds where these are available. Such funds may not be available on all platforms. Performance data are rounded to the nearest 0.1% so small rounding errors may occur. Data correct as at 01.02.24. Source: FE.
