Cash

Aims:

  • To provide modest investment returns while limiting short-term volatility and loss of capital.
  • To at least match the Bloomberg Ausbond Australian Bank Bill Index over rolling 5 year periods, net of fees.

Risk profile:

Likely to produce the lowest long-term investment returns with the fewest fluctuations from year to year. Capital invested in this option is not guaranteed. This option is likely to produce a negative return less than 6 months in every 20 years.

Risk Level:

Very low.

Investor profile:

Will suit investors looking for stability, but long term investment returns are likely to be the lowest of all investment options.
