NorthStar Safety Portfolio
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 the IA Targeted Absolute Return sector average. Values may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount originally invested.
