Investor Profile

The unit trust portfolio is suitable for investors requiring moderate capital growth and who do not wish to make complex asset allocation decisions between equities, cash and bonds, both locally and offshore. Diversification across all asset classes, and a maximum equity exposure of 60%, helps to reduce risk and volatility relative to an average prudential portfolio.
