AMP Capital Core Retirement Fund

Part of AMP Capital's goals-based investing range of funds.

Built and managed with retirement needs in mind

The Fund aims to provide investors with stable, risk-adjusted returns above inflation with lower volatility of returns, over the full investment cycle. It seeks to achieve this through investment in a portfolio of assets diversified across asset classes, sources of returns (from different asset types) and investment managers, and by maintaining a contemporary investment portfolio that is relevant to market conditions. As it is specifically designed for retirement, it is managed with a focus on income and franking credits. It also provides daily liquidity which gives investors peace of mind should unexpected emergencies arise.

"The Core Retirement Fund is designed specifically for investors in or close to retirement. The Fund aims to deliver a steady and smooth return over the longer term to help fund investors' living expenses in retirement."

Darren Beesley, Senior Portfolio Manager
  • Diversified portfolio construction
    Diversified portfolio construction

    The Fund seeks to minimise investment losses in potentially adverse investment environments through diversification. It invests in a portfolio of assets that is spread across different asset classes, sectors and geographies as well as different investment managers.

  • Dynamic asset allocation
    Dynamic asset allocation

    The Fund is actively managed, and uses dynamic asset allocation which means it has the flexibility to change the asset class mix at any time within broad ranges. This allows the portfolio manager to take advantage of market opportunities but conversely, allows the portfolio manager to adopt a more defensive position depending on market conditions.

  • Risk management strategies

What are the risks?

  • Alternative assets – traditional risks such as credit and liquidity risk can be magnified for alternative assets.
  • Asset allocation – the Fund’s asset allocation strategy does not guarantee positive investment performance at all stages of the investment cycle.
  • Derivatives – the use of derivatives may magnify any losses incurred.
  • Interest rates – including the risk of capital loss in a rising interest rate environment.
  • International investments – including losses related to currency exchange rates, hedging, and changes in the state of the Australian and world economies.
  • Investment management – there is a risk that the investment manager will not perform to expectation or factors such as changes to the investment team or a change of investment manager may affect the Fund’s performance.
  • Property investments – factors such as the quality of underlying properties and geographic location may affect the Fund’s performance.
  • Securities lending – although engaging in securities lending by underlying funds in which the Fund invests may benefit the Fund by providing increased returns, there is a risk of capital loss.
  • Share market investments – the value of the Fund’s investment in listed securities may decrease as a result of adverse share market movements.
  • Infrastructure investments – factors affecting infrastructure assets (such as a company’s ability to service debt in a rising interest rate environment) may negatively affect the value of the Fund’s investments.
