Socially Responsible Conservative Fund
Socially responsible fund
The fund aims to provide relatively consistent returns, with some capital gains over the long term.
It aims to achieve returns – after fees but before tax – of at least 2.5% per year above inflation over any 4-year period.
Generally, there will be some movements up and down in the value of the fund.
The fund invests mainly in income assets, but includes some growth assets.
It currently excludes investments in directly held companies and managed fund investments where the underlying activities are principally involved in the tobacco, alcohol, gambling, armaments and fossil fuel industries.
While managed fund investments are researched relative to this criteria, in some cases they may include a small allocation to fossil fuels which is subject to ongoing monitoring of suitable alternatives.
The criteria for screening out these investments may be modified over time to reflect developments in the socially responsible investment arena.

A higher risk generally means higher potential returns over time, but more ups and downs along the way.
