Objective

To achieve capital growth through investing in a diversified portfolio of predominantly growth assets classes, with a small proportion of defensive asset classes. Benchmark: CPI+4.5%pa over rolling 9 years.

Investment Strategy

This is an actively managed diversified portfolio of securities across both growth asset classes such as Australian equities, property and global securities; and defensive oriented asset classes, such as cash and fixed interest securities. In general, the portfolio’s long term average exposure will be around 85% growth assets and around 15% defensive assets, however the allocations will be actively managed within the allowable asset allocation ranges depending on market conditions.

Typical Investor

Investors whose main objective is to accumulate assets by targeting capital growth over the medium to long term. They are prepared to accept a moderate to high risk of capital loss to achieve this objective.

Morningstar’s Investment Approach
Morningstar’s disciplined investment approach delivers independent, cost effective and holistic solutions for our clients – helping them reach their financial goals. This long-term, valuation driven approach is underpinned by an emphasis on preserving capital and undertaking meticulous comprehensive fundamental analysis of global asset classes and securities.

Portfolio Construction Process
When building diversified portfolios to achieve long-term real returns (after fees and taxes), a dynamic approach to asset allocation improves the outcome for investors. A total-portfolio-perspective approach that seeks to adjust the portfolio when the reward for risk changes, and measures risk in a more meaningful way to preserve capital for investors, is expected to provide a more stable and improved path to wealth accumulation. This approach is often contrarian to market consensus with patience and discipline provides significant investment opportunities.

Security Selection 
Buying shares of superior businesses and allowing them to compound over time is the surest way to create wealth in the stock market. The long-term fundamentals of businesses, such as cash flow, competition, economic cycles, and stewardship, are the primary focus because history has shown that market sentiment is fleeting, momentum can quickly reverse, and the herd is sometimes a dangerous crowd. Occasionally, this approach causes our investment models to appear out of step, but willingness to be contrarian is an important source of outperformance.
