The case for Vertium

Why equities?

Equities can offer investors a blend of yield, liquidity, franking and total returns that no other asset class can provide. But equity markets can be volatile, creating a difficult choice if you need higher income.

Why low risk equities?

By reducing the sensitivity of the equity investment to the equity market (known as Beta), the risk of capital loss can be reduced. This may potentially limit downside loss and help extend the lifetime of a retirement portfolio by many years.

Who is the fund designed for?

> Retirees and conservative investors
> Self-managed super funds
> Institutions seeking lower-risk diversification
