Investment is diversified across a range of industries and sectors, with a focus on the largest 200 companies on the Australian Securities Exchange. The fund currently invests in the AMP Capital Equity Fund, a fund managed by AMP Capital in Australia.
How does the Fund meet your needs?
The fund’s investments are focused towards companies with stable or growing earnings, which we believe are undervalued in relation to their projected earnings potential. This gives you the opportunity to invest in companies that represent an attractive market opportunity.
By actively managing the fund, we are able to act on opportunities as they arise, taking advantage of growth and mispriced market opportunities.
Because the fund invests in a variety of industries and sectors, you will benefit from access to more investment opportunities that offer the potential for growth.
