Balanced Fund

Add to your portfolio

Investor Profile

The portfolio is suitable for investors requiring moderate levels of capital growth who do not wish to make complex asset allocation decisions between equities, cash and bonds, both locally and offshore. Diversification across asset classes and a maximum equity exposure of 75% helps to reduce risk and volatility relative to a general equity portfolio.
