Each of VicSuper’s investment options is invested according to a strategic (long-term) asset allocation.
Options that are invested across more than one asset class (the Capital Secure, Capital Stable, Balanced, Socially Conscious, Growth (MySuper), and Equity Growth investment options) also include dynamic asset allocation ranges which mean VicSuper can increase or reduce the exposure to an asset class, depending on market conditions.
VicSuper's investment options is invested according to a strategic long term asset allocation. The strategic asset allocation is the percentage of monies allocated to asset classes including equities, fixed interest, real assets, cash and alternatives. The strategic asset allocation for each of VicSuper's investment options is focused on achieving an expected 10-year return, subject to a level of risk.
To set the strategic asset allocation for each option we act on advice from our principal asset consultant, Frontier Advisors Pty Ltd.The strategic asset allocation and investment strategy may be altered from time to time (including through dynamic asset allocations). As a result, the asset allocation and investment objective for each investment option may change.
Using the strategic asset allocation as a base the Trustee may implement dynamic tilts to the SAA.
By using a dynamic asset allocation process, we can vary the actual asset allocation to the strategic asset allocation of each asset class within the approved range of +/-15%.
This typically occurs if market conditions warrant a change or if attractive investment opportunities exist to capitalise on either return-enhancing or risk-reducing investment strategies.
