COUNTERPOINT CAUTIOUS MODEL PORTFOLIO
RISK PROFILE
Cautious with a tolerance for periods of downside risk

OBJECTIVE
Cautious Balanced Model aims to provide moderate capital growth, preserving capital in real terms and generating a moderate level of income. It is constructed to target low volatility with low exposure to risky/growth asset classes. The model will invest in well rated local and offshore collective investment schemes in order to achieve the investment objectives. The selection of funds within the model is focused on building a high quality, defensive portfolio which adapts relative to the market cycle. The model will actively manage risk through the various funds and asset allocation views taken. An allocation is made to offshore funds to provide both asset and currency diversification. In order to achieve capital growth there will be exposure to growth asset classes such as listed equities and listed property - the expected average equity allocation is between 20% and 40% across local and offshore holdings. The model targets Inflation plus 3% on a rolling 3 year basis after fees. It is intended for the conservative client with a low risk appetite but who still requires capital growth. The model is compliant with Regulation 28.
