Objective

The investment objective of the StocksPLUS Fund is to seek to achieve a total return which exceeds the total return performance of the Standard & Poor’s 500 Composite Stock Price Index (“S&P 500”).

Overview

Fund Description

The StocksPLUS Fund offers investors exposure to the returns of the S&P 500 Index via non-leveraged positions in futures and swaps which are collateralised by an actively managed portfolio of short-duration, fixed income securities. The fixed income portfolio offers the potential for excess returns relative to the index.

Investor Benefits

This fund aims to outperform the benchmark by generating excess returns over the prevailing money market rate from an actively managed bond portfolio.

The Fund Advantage

The fund offers potential excess returns over equities that are uncorrelated with active equity managers by employing a high quality bond portfolio.
