About the NorthStar Defensive Growth Portfolio
The NorthStar Defensive Growth Portfolio is suitable for investors who are seeking capital growth but require a high level of capital security, protecting their investment from the majority of 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 a significant amount of short-term market volatility and provide a high degree of capital protection. Equity exposure will typically be around 30%, 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 3-4% per annum over a rolling 5-year period and is benchmarked against the IA Mixed Investment 0-35% Shares sector average. Values may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount originally invested.
