Diversified Growth Fund

Overview and Investment Objective

Date:  Tue 10 December, 2019  |   Price:   2.9733

Clarity Funds Management Limited was established in 2007 and now offers eight investment funds. The investment management expertise of JMI Wealth is used to manage funds offered to our clients through Clarity.  

Clarity has the ability to appoint external investment managers or advisers.

Objective: The Fund will provide actively managed exposure to New Zealand, Australian and international equities, and aims to generate a better return than the benchmark over the medium to long term (five years or longer).

Strategy: The Fund will primarily invest in managed funds (including the Trans-Tasman Value Fund and the Global Shares Fund) to achieve a well-diversified portfolio of equities. It may also invest in other assets on listed sharemarkets.

Benchmark: 25% S&P/NZX 50 Portfolio Index Gross with Imputation, 25% S&P/ASX 200 Accumulation Index in New Zealand dollars, and 50% MSCI All Country World ex-Tobacco Index (net dividends reinvested) in New Zealand dollars with 50% hedged to the New Zealand dollar.

Holdings: The Fund is actively managed, which means the holdings may differ considerably from the relevant benchmark index.

Suitability: This Fund may be suitable for those investors who are comfortable with a higher risk in the short term but want a diversified exposure to shares.

The target asset allocation ranges shown below are the expected average asset mix of the Fund over the long term. Clarity will manage the Fund within the given ranges.

Hedging: The foreign currency exposure arising from overseas equities will be partially hedged to the New Zealand dollar to reduce the impact of currency fluctuations. Please refer to the Currency Management section of the SIPO for further information.

Distribution: We do not make any cash distributions from the Fund.
