The Schroder Real Return Fund has a track record of delivering reliable returns, while preserving investor capital during times of volatility.
The fund is a global multi-asset strategy, that targets a return of CPI¹ plus 4% to 5% p.a. before fees over rolling 3-year periods while minimising the incidence and size of negative returns in doing so. It uses flexible, forward looking asset allocation across global markets and sectors to find opportunities as they occur, while managing risk.
¹ CPI is defined as the RBA's Trimmed Mean, as published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
Track record of delivering returns while seeking to minimise volatility and drawdowns.
Global diversification across asset classes and securities to find growth opportunities where and when they occur, sometimes in hard-to-reach places.
Helping to avoid losses and preserve capital, should markets fall. Our approach aims to protect clients from bearing the full brunt of market falls.
Pioneers in multi-asset investing and a market leader in ‘objective based’ investing.
The fund is designed for investors who are seeking stable, consistent returns in all market environments and may be suitable for:
This product is likely to be appropriate for a consumer seeking capital growth, capital preservation and income for all or some components of their portfolio, with a medium to high risk and return profile.
This product is unlikely to be suitable for a consumer seeking capital guarantee or with a short investment timeframe.
For full details of the target market for this Fund please refer to the Target Market Determination.
The fund’s stable returns profile makes it an ideal core holding in a ‘core-satellite’ approach. Satellite investments provide strategic exposure to specific asset classes, dialled up or down to support investor needs.
Given its absolute return focus, the fund can replace an existing allocation to alternative assets. It also provides liquidity and transparency, unlike many traditional alternatives.
An excellent diversifier to an existing portfolio, where an allocation to the fund is created by reducing existing allocations to other assets.
Effective as a whole portfolio, especially if an investor’s balance is not large enough to truly diversify across the global investment universe.
